Stranger by the minute

Does anyone understand anything from this article?

Democratic presidential challenger John Kerry (news - web sites) appealed for an end to the TV advertising war that has marked his election battle against President George W. Bush

Is he serious? If so, I guess the ads are landing blows more fatal than we thought.

Kerry said the avalanche of negative television spots and attacks
being shown on US screens was scaring off voters.

Maybe it's because of his mug... maybe not.

"What they don't need is all these trumped up advertisements,
they just make people curl up and walk away," added the Massachusetts senator.

You mean curl up in the fetal position, Mr Kerry? Could it be that maybe it's just you who is in the fetal position after watching the advertisements?

"I'm calling them 'misleadisments,'" Kerry said of the
adverts. "It's all scare tactics ... because (Bush) has no record to run on."

There is so much wrong with this one statement a book could be written about it. First "misleadisments"? Try to say that to yourself. It flows, doesn't it? Of course it doesn't. He needs to take some lessons from Jim or Rich Lowry (creator of "bleg" for blogger begging) or even me about plays on words. Second, Bush has no record? Then what the heck have you been attacking for the last 9 months, Senator? No one believes you, so just stop talking.

In Wisconsin, Kerry also made a personality attack against the
president, saying that he and his rival are both children of privilege, but Bush
considers his comfortable position an entitlement.

Oh. My. Gosh! "Lets stop the attacks. Well, just you stop the attacks." And then he goes on to talk about Bush considering his position an entitlement. What does that mean? Please, someone explain to me what he is implying. My head is spinning by now.

Kerry said "he and I, we went to the same university, we're
both very privileged." Both men attended Yale University.

The Democrat added that from his education "came a
sense of fairness and responsibility" while Bush "thinks it's

This is some seriously odd campaigning.

"I've been right on Iraq all along," said Kerry. "I said yes, we
ought to hold him (Saddam Hussein) accountable, but let's do it the right way,
and I showed what it was, step by step. And step-by-step the president chose the wrong way."

As the New Kids on The Block once squealed, "Step by step - like a lunatic." Step-by-step, indeed. This guy needs to be committed, soon, or it's not going to be just himself he hurts. Oh, wait it's not just him, already.

UPDATE: Allah goes Popeil on the Kerry Camp's constant whining about relevant issues.
