Scare tactics

So the Kerry campaign has decided to accuse the Bush team of "scaring people" with the war on terror.

Note to Kerry: the war on terror--and the jihad that has been declared against us--IS scary, and IS real.

Meanwhile, Cameron Diaz appears on Oprah to encourage mind-controlled, shrieking, loser, fat women with low self esteem to register to vote. Why, they ask, should we vote? "If you think rape should be legal," Diaz reasons, "then don't vote." Wha.....? (Obviously, of course, she wanted to talk about abortion, but that's not the point. I'm also embarrassed to say that I was watching when she said it (the Plaintiff made me) and we both just looked at each other with mouths agape. Surely, she helped Bush with that absurd comment.)

And meanwhile, Kerry surrogates suggest that Bush is considering bringing back the draft if re-elected. Once again--wha........? I mean, how can they get away with suggesting this kind of stuff, especially after Cheney got skewered for suggesting that a Kerry presidency would leave America more vulnerable to a terrorist attack (and when taken in context, Cheney's comments weren't nearly so controversial).

Reminds me of when I was teaching 7th grade, talking about the possible war in Iraq with the kids, and one of my black students asked, "Is it true that Bush wants to make us all slaves again?" And this is not to mention the "Medi-scare"/SS fear campaigns the Dems run every election to scare the elderly away from Republican candidates.

But Bush is the one scaring people about, you know, airplanes flying into buildings, trains blowing up, and schoolchildren being massacred. Because, you know, none of that stuff has actually happened.

Nate, FYI: you don't need to admit to things on here that we wouldn't be able to find out otherwise - namely, that you were watching Oprah. For example, I don't admit that "Beaches" is my favorite movie of all time, and you guys have absolutely no way of ever findi. . .damn.
