Here we are less than two weeks from the election and John Kerry is still playing "hide the ball." The last thing he wants most of us -- excluding his loony, militant base -- to know is who he really is.
Kerry knows that if he releases his military records or is forthright about his true beliefs on the issues, he won't stand a ghost of a chance. His entire campaign, therefore, has been little more than an extended "wink and a nod."
He is locked in an unspoken conspiracy with his wild-eyed Michael Moore/George Soros/Whoopi Goldberg base to feint just enough toward sanity to fool the Ward Cleaver voter. After "winking" behind his shades to the America-haters, he turns toward middle Americans, and with a "nod" fraudulently affirms to them his allegiance to traditionalism.
What is Kerry so afraid of? Why doesn't he want you to find out the identity of that man behind the curtain? Why doesn't he want you to read his book "The New Soldier"? Why doesn't he want you to see "Stolen Honor"? Why won't he release his medical records? Why won't he talk about his Senate record? Why won't he address specific charges about his Vietnam tour?
The answer is that without convincing millions of voters he is someone that he is not, he would suffer the biggest landslide defeat in American history -- bar none. What a sad state American liberalism finds itself in when it can't tout its own candidate as a true believer. And what a sad commentary on the candidate himself that he would willingly participate in such a fundamental deception about his very essence as a human being....
Do you think his antiwar supporters are the least bit troubled when he puts his war paint on, puffs out his chest, and says he'll hunt down and kill all the terrorists?
Kerry's biggest challenge in this election is to woo the gullible class just enough not to make his nutty base think he might be serious. If that fails, it will have to be election mischief and litigation.
