The latest Republican attacks on Kerry, which claim he should resign his senate seat because he’s been absent from the senate while campaigning, is another non-story that will probably keep the focus off the Nixonian Memos and Ashcroft’s spurious scare-mongering for another week. Kerry Healy, the invisible republican lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, is spearheading this effort, in what is either an attempt to steal another senate seat, or shameless campaigning for Bush under the guise of “what’s best for Massachusetts.”
Maybe I’m retarded, but I was under the impression that the House and Senate have republican majorities, who almost always vote along strict party lines. One Democratic senator is going to be the deciding vote on jack shit this summer. I voted for Kerry to represent me, which he does, since I live in Massachusetts. I’m a little foggy on geography, but if he becomes President of the United States of America, I think that also includes Massachusetts.
The best part of this meme they’re starting to spread is that if you apply the same logic that they’re using to attack Kerry, you’ll have a stronger argument for asking Bush to resign. That fucker represents a shitload more people than Kerry and he’s taken more time off. You might have to include his photo-ops and fundraising to the official “days-off”, which as sad as it is, actually count as work for the shithead.
