Kerry sends out the "troops"

For some reason, the Democrats think Al Gore is sane, or at least they think you think he is sane. Unfortunately, once he opens his mouth things happen to come out of it:

"The essential cruelty of Bush's game is that he takes an astonishingly selfish and greedy collection of economic and political proposals and then cloaks them with a phony moral authority, thus misleading many Americans ... who have a deep and genuine desire to do good in the world,"
Hmm... I'm not a psychologist, but this looks like the kettle calling the pot black.

"I'm convinced that most of the president's frequent departures from fact-based analysis have much more to do with right-wing political and economic ideology than with the Bible,"
In recent days the Kerry campaign and their Democrat allies have done their best to highlight John Kerry's phony faith. Now, they're trying to belittle the President's faith. What does it mean? Kerry is tanking - BIG TIME, as Hugh would say - and the internal polls are showing that a LARGE portion of the 4 million evangelicals who skipped the last election are turning out on Nov 2 (and before, in early voting and absentee). This emphasis on "religion" and faith the Democrats have focused on in the last week is a telling sign. It started during the VP debate and then in the 3rd Presidential debate, when Kerry decided to make a point that Dick Cheney's daughter was a lesbian. There was only one reason for it and that was to hurt the President's support amongst Christians. I am heartened to see this focus because is does fortell who they are expecting to come to the polls. As well, it shows a shift in the black vote, who are extermely social conservative. Kerry is in trouble and the actions of both campaigns are showing it.

UPDATE 11/19: This morning, Hindrocket has some thoughts about Gore's speech yesterday, too. I did not cover it from the angle he does because someone else was going to. Hindrocket is correct - the speech was absolutely incoherent. But what was said is not the point - it's why he made the comments, and that is the reason I took the route I did. Hindrocket covers my back by getting down to the nitty gritty.
