Democrats Like To Grope Too

Drudge has a photo montage of the two Johns groping and cuddling each other at every photo opportunity.


Now i'm not offended by two men being physically affectionate with each other (not even two political candidates who until two days ago were rumored to have disliked each other intensely). It's just that this Democratic touchy-feely shit is such an obvious attempt to pander to us female voters. Yah, i'm sure the polls and focus groups say we're supposed to respond more favorably to men who hug each other. Maybe we do in a general sense, i don't know. But i do know that in the midst of a war, in which our enemy has made no secret that they want us all dead, and that they are not interested in negotiating on that point, and that they'll stop at nothing to kill us all, and as violently as possible . . . well let's just say i'd rather have a couple of men who shake hands leading our side in that situation.

You're just baiting me into another soaring paean to male affection on my blog, aren't you, Annie?

Annika -
John Kerry was quick to reinforce his fondness for hunting so perhaps we'll see both Johns out there trying to appeal to your need for more "manly" photo-ops.


I was more curious on the reaction to Kerry's statement that life begins at conception..perhaps we can bait Hugo into writing on that..

Shouldn't this post be categorized under the Risqué Business rubric?

All I can say is I'm looking forward to this weekend's round of caption contests.

Annie, you should've warned me about opening update #2. Now I have to grab some paper towels to clean up the mess.

This one's pretty funny too:

I said this in my comment section but I would not feel at all better if Kerry had chosen Hillary and couldn't stop touching her. Just weird and inappropriate. It's like he thinks Edwards is a puppy.

Annie, glad your mom is better than you feared! Praise God!

And I have taken you on over the Edwards-Kerry stuff over at my blog.
