Lifelong Democrat to vote for Bush

"I've never before supported a Republican for president,"
Koch told me last week. "But I'm doing so this time because
of the one issue that trumps everything else: international
terrorism. In my judgment, the Democratic Party just doesn't
have the stomach to stand up to the terrorists. But Bush is a fighter."

But hasn't Kerry pledged to stay in Iraq and to go after the
terrorists? "That's what he says to appeal to moderates and
conservatives during the campaign," Koch replies. But the party
activists who nominated him would compel him to back down
once he was in office. The people now running the Democratic
Party want no part of the war, and "when the chips are down,
Kerry will do what they want."

Hi, Del.

With all due respect to Ed Koch, his logic is absurd. When the leader is taking the herd over a cliff, you darned well better change in mid-rush or all the lemmings are lost!

Dave, I find his logic better than yours, Dave. Dave, didn't anybody ever tell you that that old Disney nature footage about lemmings marching off a cliff was a studio fake? Professor Konkel, lemmings don't blindly march off cliffs, but the myth did make for an entertaining, to the point of almost being addictive, computer video game.

Yep, yep, yep...........

If they follow Dave K, he's running with his eyes
closed, and I, for one, don't care to listen to them
scream all the way down. The cliff in his scenario is
very real and he doesn't see it.

Is that the position Kerry is running for, leading a pack of lemmings?! Oh,well, that explains all the troubles he's had in running for the Presidency, and why he thought he was suitable in the first place. Someone should tell him he checked the wrong box on his application.
Actually, Kerry and the rest of the Democrat leadership would do well leading the lemmings, mindless followers who simply do what they say and give no thought nor apply logic to the world...wait, they already do.
