The Blanket

Bush & Kerry


Malcolm G. Ratcliffe • 3 Ocotber 2004

Sounds like Paddy Hurley has his nose way out of joint. Me thinks he doth protest to much. Suck it up son. Got your own war record to brag about? Thought as much?

My Granda, an Irish veteran of two world wars, never had a problem discussing his 'adventures' across Europe, but he saved his greatest disdain for the asshole politicians that sent them there in the first place.

Know your enemy.

Maybe young Bush could brag about his 'coke' snorting record. I can just imagine the painful battle scars the coke left on the lining of his nose, not to mention the abdication of his brain cells. I'll take the machinations of a slightly wounded war hero, over the dithering of a burnt out alcoholic coke-head anyway.
