“We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other debilitating diseases… When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.”
– Democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards
I knew that Edwards was a snake oil salesman, but this is not only bordering on blasphemy, it is leaping far beyond the borders of ridiculousness. The extent to which imaginative lefties are able to project their desires onto JJ Kerry has astounded me, but I don’t think even the most fantasy-prone college girl on Prozac will be able to swallow this one.
The upside is that we now have a new and presumably less offensive phrase to swear by. I think “John F. Kerry on a popsicle stick” has a certain ring to it.
