Sour Grapes Kerry

"It is hard to say that something is legitimate when whole portions of the country can't vote and doesn't vote," Senator John Kerry, D-Mass., said on NBC's "Meet The Press" today.

Was he speaking of the very first election on American soil at the birth of the first democracy in the world? Let's see, those Americans elected their Revolution's military commander as President of their country with only one in fifteen people eligible to vote. About half the population was ineligible because of its female gender. Another large percentage was counted out because of its race being other than white. In addition, anyone not owning real estate in the new country was unqualified to vote also. Even religion was a factor in some of the new states.

Oh no, Kerry was speaking of Iraq! Their election was NOT legitimate he says. Please, someone ask him about the election of George Washington. Also, how about the votes for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States? Were they illegitimate, because my great great great grandmothers were not allowed a say?

Say a prayer of gratitude that such a "non-leader" is NOT president of these United States.


  1. I wonder if Kerry thinks the election of 1864 was illegitimate since eleven states stayed away from the polls and didn't vote. Kerry's behavior is sad and embarrassing

  2. Yes, that is a good example. Even when we were having a civil war the election went forward. And I am sure that there were many disenfranchised in the South, who would have wanted to vote and could not.
