F. Kerry doesn't think we are stupid,
but he does hope we aren't as ignorant
as Chenin Simi was in the Oct. 13 issue
of the 49er. First of all, the $87 billion
which was asked for is a non-issue. If
the U.S. was prepared to go into Bush's
war, he should have asked for this money
before we went into war.
when Bush realizes "Hey Jeb, they's
be a shoot'n back" (followed by swig

you believe in them strongly enough, they
will be there.
oh, poor Bush, he got bad information
and used it. I don't hear the Republicans
asking him to step down like they asked
Dan Rather of CBS when he got bad information.
The information regarding Bush being in
the National Guard is quite ironic. He
dodges Vietnam by being in the National
Guard yet sends National Guard troops
to the miss-Q (as in missed al-Qaeda)
of a war in Iraq. Where's the loyalty
to the guard which guarded him? Finally,
in the words of Bill Maher, "What
is this longing for a regular guy in the
highest office in the world?
should be exceptional. John Kerry, for
all his flaws, is an exceptional person.
And President Bush? Well, he's a special
