Fickle, fickle is the American voter.
At least that is what the Republican party would have everyone believe.
But maybe they are correct.
Perhaps, in the light of John Kerry putting a large foot in his mouth, the voters will ignore corruption, sex scandals, greed, ignorance, arrogance and general mayhem of the Republicans.
Maybe the Republicans can get the patriotism back to the feverish pitch when people honestly forgot what freedom of speech was all about.
Maybe they can rile all of the people who have soldiers in Iraq fighting because we were told there were WMDs being manufactured there.
Oh, those people aren't all happy with the price the soldiers are paying.
And, those people know that to speak out against the war is not the same as not supporting the soldiers.
We are tired of all the smoke screens.
Lie about WMDs and start war to get Saddam.
Wave flags and make a vow of radical patriotism in the face of war criticism.
Quietly let go of retired war hero General who sold nation on war.
Leak the identity of CIA Agent wife of outspoken war critic.
When the public becomes impatient with the lack of progress and the rising casualties, have the Vice President start shooting people.
Lie, cheat, and steal when ever you want.
Create an environment of hate by accusing homosexuals of destroying traditional family values.
Use those traditional values to preach hate towards illegal aliens.
Sure, one very ill-advised comment by John Kerry will make everything all better for the Republicans on tuesday. (Say this softly and in a calm reassuring tone, as if putting a baby to sleep)
There, there, now. Just rest your head.
It'll all be over in a little while.
