He's a Leader.... No, He Really ISI can’t seem to shake free of this line-item veto thing. Been out there surfing the blogs, trying to see which way the wind blows. Blue and red bloggers alike—the ones who go deeper than simply flinging crap at the other side—seem to think the line-item veto is not a good idea.
Some, however, take the Kerry complicity in the affair to a whole new level. Steve Gilliard writes this in his News Blog:
Let me explain why Kerry said this:Okayyyy... I guess this is one explanation I hadn’t considered.
Hmmmm…I never gave Senator Kerry credit for being so diabolically clever. He played the deer-in-the-headlights so well during the 2004 campaign. Ah…but now I understand! His plan all along was to appear completely lame, so that he could go back to the senate and set up these fiendishly canny traps for the Bush Administration.
But…why am I suddenly flashing back to the guy I met at the county fair four months before the presidential election? The one who told me that he was sure John Kerry would be a great president, because, after all, if you put a beard and a stove pipe hat on him—who did he look like?
I can only come to the sad conclusion that real leadership among the Democrats is so non-existent that the desperate faithful have been forced to invent it. And the rest of us are waiting for the real leaders to step up to the plate. Before it’s too late.
