KerryHaters was first to blog on the Christmas-in-Cambodia lie, way back on May 21. Too bad the elite media hadn't cast their net widely enough. They'd have had a scoop long ago.--Hugh Hewitt

Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.--Crush Kerry

"More people have been killed in Ted Kennedy's car than have died from nuclear power in the United States." --Jim Michaels on Forbes on Fox

North Korea wants to talk! Read about this and all the GREAT healines, other than "Bush WINS!," that we've seen in just a week after that win here.
The Last Battle of Vietnam

Russ Vaugh has another poem.

Ignored and dismissed by the media queens
Being shrewd, savvy sailors they still found the means
To reach out to the people, to open their eyes
To a phony John Kerry and his war story lies.
With their very first ad, they torpedoed his boat,
A Cambodian Christmas would no longer float.
His heroics unraveled, his stories fell flat,
Especially that one ‘bout his magical hat.

Memories of a Fallen Hero

Over at Brainsters, I have a link to a story that started here, but has continued past the election.
The Medium is the Message

Kerry, working hard:

Last Saturday night at H2O, a waterfront nightclub in southwest Washington, the Kerry campaign assembled for a final evening of drinking. To everyone's surprise, John Kerry himself flew down from Boston to attend the festivities. Trying to buck up his demoralized troops, the ex-candidate gave a short speech about how much his team had accomplished. "People are going to try to rewrite history and say we didn't have a message in this campaign," Kerry told his staff, according to one Democratic strategist. "And, let me tell you, the message never changed. The message we had in the final days of the campaign was the same as the one we had in the primaries." That was news to some of the boozy Kerry revelers. "Everyone in that room was on edge because everyone wanted to know: What was that message?" says the strategist.

Exactly. Kerry has this weird habit of taking the obvious weaknesses of his campaign and saying that in fact, they were the signal strengths. Take for example, his ridiculous claims that he had been consistent on Iraq.

Instant Replay

Is this nothing more than conspiracy theorists talking about the election? Or is it something Kerry should consider as a fan of the Red Socks? Find out here.

I cannot think of another person to win Man of the Year other than George W. Bush. Who do you think could be considered?

Is it possible that there are TWO Dems who are beginning to see the light?


On this Veteran’s Day, KerryHaters would like to thank the Swift Boat Vets for their service more than thirty years ago and for their continued, unflinching courage in exposing John Kerry for the fraud he is.

Harry Kerry
The Prowler
Sen. John Kerry's invitation to Tuesday's Capitol Hill meeting between House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate minority whip Harry M. Reid, Democrat of Nevada, was intended as more a face-saving gesture than any indication that Kerry will take a leadership role in the Senate, says a Senate minority leadership aide.
"His presence there was more about avoiding awkward questions about why he wasn't there," says the staffer. "This was about courtesy and giving him a nod. I don't think anyone, especially Harry Reid, is willing to cede anything to Kerry at this point, because Kerry hasn't earned it. Reid and others were basically in hand to hand combat with Republicans for the past two years. Kerry was out there glad-handing and botching a golden opportunity."
If the meeting was nothing more than a photo-op, Kerry didn't get the memo. According to onlookers, Kerry practically shouldered Reid out of the way to take the center seat between Pelosi, leaving Reid to sit off to the side on a sofa.

"The only thing Kerry has going for him is the press, which will be fascinated in the dynamic of Democratic Senate politics," says the Senate Democratic leadership staffer. "But that will wear off pretty quick once people start getting their hands dirty after the inauguration."

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
By R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
One of the reasons I can say with the utmost confidence that the liberal Democrats are going to be out in the cold for a very long time has to do with a sociological observation. Almost no liberal Democrat knows a conservative Republican of whom he is not contemptuous.

The liberal Democrats' contempt for those who just won the November 2 elections explains their amazing anger. Couple their contempt with their ignorance -- often studied ignorance -- of the people who just beat them, and you will understand why I say liberals are, politically speaking, finished.

The Un-Concession?

Democracy Now (granted, we're going pretty far afield here in search of the wild nutjob) suggests that perhaps Kerry could withdraw his concession.

Okay this probably belongs in my "The Reality-Based Community?" series over at Brainster. But it is interesting in that huge segments of the fever swamp community are not just shooting themselves at Ground Zero (oops, looks like that was a girlfriend thing) or moving to Canada, they're running around trying to duplicate Pilger's ridiculous work on Florida 2000.

THOM HARTMANN: In fact, I have been following it so closely that I have even had to issue a semi-mea culpa. Initially speaking with Jeff Fisher in Florida, the 16th Congressional area candidate, he made some suggestions, and he has some concerns. He's apparently still waiting for the FBI to follow through on his allegations. I keep trying to follow up on this. I wrote a piece initially for Common Dreams about this based on information that I got from him and several other sources referencing Kathy Dopp's work and had come to the incorrect conclusion that small counties were being flipped and large counties were being ignored. Within two hours we figured out that was not the case. We got in touch with Kathy and got more information on this, fixed the article, noted in the article - on the new article in Common Dreams - that it looks like the difference is not small county/large county. The difference is what kind of machine was used to tabulate the vote. And this is still not conclusive information. There's a huge debate going on among the statistician community about this.

I'll give the guy this, he seems to be admitting where he went wrong (everywhere) and that he's not sure. But... there is a segment of the left that is holding out hope even yet based on the exit polls (which get cited ad nauseum along with our old friend Dick Morris).

Kerry's New Comeback

Deb Orin looks at it in the Post.

Democratic strategists didn't exactly welcome hints of a repeat performance from Kerry, whose defeat was blamed in part on his patrician style and inability to connect with ordinary voters.

"It sounds like an extreme form of psychotherapy being carried out by friends and family for a man who's depressed after losing," scoffed a veteran Democratic activist.

He's going to find that nobody liked John Kerry among the Democrats; they just hated President Bush.

Rush brings down the house at the Heritage Foundation Dinner at the Reagan Building last night...click here for links to free audio/video if you are not a member.

He totally invicerates the left, the dims and John Kerry.

He is a lying liar and you should be concerned. I faxed all three offices of John Kyl (I am an AZ ex-pat) and begged him to step up and fight for the Chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee in the US Senate.

He's already been caught lying in local newspapers in PA; see here.

This Blog May Rise Again

Oh, no, I don't think I could stand this:

Kerry fueled talk about a 2008 bid during remarks at a Washington restaurant Saturday night. He provoked a thunderous reaction by reminding about 400 campaign aides and volunteers that Ronald Reagan twice sought the Republican nomination for president before winning it in 1980.

Steyn On The Wisdom of the Red States

More pearls from the master:

The American people don't want to be condescended to by ketchup heiresses, billionaire currency speculators, $20-million-a-picture Hollywood pretty boys, and multi-millionaire documentary-makers posing as bluecollar lardbutts.

The Democrats keep talking to people as if they're like John Edwards's 40-year mill-workers, but that's not what work is any more, and a 23-year-old hairdresser can know enough about starting and running a business to be unimpressed at a few footling tax credits dangled in front of her by a 60-year-old lifelong "public servant" lucky enough to be living a grand old life thanks to his billionaire wife's first husband.

Yet Another Symptom of the Media's Tanking for Kerry

I note the effectiveness of calls from the Kerry campaign to the alphabet networks on election night over at Brainster's.

KerrySpot must have read KerryHaters since Pat already took note of this Newsweak detail on Saturday, and it wasn’t the first time Pat has posted this info, either.

Jay noticed this little detail in Newsweek's coverage:
"Historian Douglas Brinkley, author of a wartime biography of Kerry, cautioned that Kerry's diary included mention of a
meeting with some North Vietnamese terrorists in Paris. Edwards was
flabbergasted. 'Let me get this straight,' the senator said. 'He met with
terrorists? Oh, that's good.'"
Do I detect a little, "How in the world did I lose the primary to this guy?" in that response?

Another Poem by Russ Vaughn

Bold John sailed forth in his faux scow,
Till the Swiftees fired across his bow;
And legions of irate attorneys,
Could not defend Cambodian journeys,
Nor stories of his fabled hat,
So voters sensed they smelled a rat.
And while the networks denied them prime,
The Swiftees surely got their time.

While John screamed it was all a smear,
O’Neill came across sincere,
And forced Big John to duck the press,
To run, to hide from his specious mess.
But relentless those old Swiftee guys,
They bit, hung on, exposed his lies.
These brave old warriors once again
Stood for their country, for their kin.

They made us all look one more time
At the traitor who’d charged them with crime,
And gave false witness to their deeds
For nothing more than political needs.
It’s a smear proclaimed the New York Times
Those liars all committed crimes.
Chris Matthews raged, foamed at the mouth,
Still the turncoat’s campaign headed south.

So the Swiftboat Veterans’ charges stuck
And made poor John a sitting duck.
He had no answers, no glib replies,
To cover up his treasonous lies;
That made us think, our minds aware,
The Swiftees had some truth in there;
What if he’d faked his combat valor,
Were all those medals tinged with pallor?

Dan Rather would not pay them heed,
But still the Swiftees made John bleed.
The mainstream pundits called them liars;
But no lefty slant could staunch these fires.
The blazes that these Swiftees set
Were burning John Boy’s ass you bet;
And those Swiftboat fires just burned away
Till they fried John’s ass on election day.

Now all you heroes on that Wall
Take solace seeing Kerry fall.
This scheming pol who stained your name
Has been denied his claim to fame.
The Swiftees stood and did their best,
Denied the traitor his life’s quest.
You can rest in peace our honored kin
Your honor restored by honorable men.

(Pat's after comment: Russ confirmed to me via email that he meant to say O'Neill not O'Brien and I have fixed the poem to reflect this). BTW, if you'd like to read Russ's prose summary of the election it is here.
Kerry's Problem in a Nutshell

It's that he's a nut. No, wait a minute, it's that he's humorless, liberal and unlikeable, says Dawson Bell.

On the humorless front, he points to a site that has popped up in the last week, where liberal Americans can post their apologies to the world. I guess Kerry didn't get to do his international tour of apology, so the libs are taking care of it. He contrasts that to this site, where folks can refuse to apologize.

Poster found on CommunistsForKerry web site.

It’s good to know that the CommunistsForKerry are still here for our entertainment and re-education.
The Party has made him, the Party shall take him away!
It is our sad duty to report that Komrad Kerry has been purged for failing the revolution. He has been advised to take a self-criticism session involving a personal sidearm. We will remember him in our hearts as our most expendable apparatchik.
A few Party members have inquired about the Politbureau's course of action in the near future. Komrad Hillary has humbly suggested to take over, as the rest of the Party melts away into the countryside, which is all red, and regroup for the '08 election. Like Che and Fidel, we must now take to the jungles of America to continue the revolution. Like Lenin and Stalin, we shall penetrate the tundra, the taiga, and the steppes of the American Motherland. Keep your Red Star Radio receivers handy, you shall soon hear the transmission instructing you of the Party-approved course of action

And for your re-education entertainment:
With includes clues like, “Wrecked shoe phone on podium, mad about capitalism, still buried.”

Russian revolutionary Lev Davidovich Bronstein is born today in 1879. Better known to the world as Trotsky, he becomes, along with Lenin and Stalin, one of the major figures of Communist Russia in the 1920s. After Lenin's death, he loses a power struggle with Stalin, and moves as an exile to Mexico where he is finally assassinated in 1940.

NY Times: Swiftees Among Losers in the Election

Sigh. It never ends. Summing up the winners and losers from Tuesday's election, the Times puts the Swiftees on the wrong side:

The Swift Boat Veterans and the Band of Brothers. What will they do when they don't have each other to kick around?

And of course if Kerry had won, the Times would have put them on the winners' side, right? Hey, I just realized. Kerry Haters is one of the big losers in this election, because we don't have Kerry to kick around anymore.
