A letter to Jean Francois

Walter Cronkite writes: “In the interests of your campaign and your party’s desire to unseat George W. Bush, you have some explaining to do. When the National Journal said your Senate record makes you one of the most liberal members of the Senate, you called that ‘a laughable characterization’ and ‘the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen in my life.’ Wow! Liberals, who make up a substantial portion of the Democratic Party and a significant portion of the independent vote, are entitled to ask, ‘What gives?’ “It isn’t just the National Journal that has branded you as a liberal. So has the liberal lobbying group Americans for Democratic Action. … What are you ashamed of?”

Walter, you senile old drag queen, Senator Kerry is ashamed of the fact that his leftist views, even prettied up with the description liberal, will keep him out of office. This is hardly rocket science. While I admire straightforward liberals like Walter Mondale and Paul Wellstone, who have at least part of the courage of their convictions, there’s a reason that they couldn’t get elected anywhere outside of the People’s Republic of Minnesota.
