More necessary reading

Kerry's looking for American failure -- and he's it

"What a small, graceless man Kerry is. The nature of adversarial politics in a democratic society makes George W. Bush his opponent. But it was entirely

Kerry's choice to expand the field, to put himself on the other side of Allawi

and the Iraqi people. Given his frequent boasts that he knows how to reach out

to America's allies, it's remarkable how often he feels the need to insult them:

Britain, Australia, and now free Iraq. But, because this pampered cipher has

floundered for 18 months to find any rationale for his candidacy other than his

indestructible belief in his own indispensability, Kerry finds himself a month

before the election with no platform to run on other than American defeat. He

has decided to co-opt the jihadist death-cult, the Baathist dead-enders, the

suicide bombers and other misfits and run as the candidate of American failure.

This would be shameful if he weren't so laughably inept at it."
