John Kerry is lamenting the “know-nothingness” of those of us who oppose him politically:
With his party braced for defeats in the midterm elections, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce that a Republican machine — fueled by talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck — has undermined progress and misled the public into believing Democrats created the country’s current economic problems.
Kerry singled out attacks on an energy deal he was negotiating with Republicans, which fell apart amid criticism of an emissions-trading program. Some 20 Senate candidates are now opposing the proposed deal in their campaigns.
“It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” said a clearly exasperated Kerry. “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.”
The Massachusetts Republican Party accused Kerry of displaying “astonishing arrogance by shifting blame for the failed policies jammed down our throats by his party.”
Party Chairwoman Jennifer Nassour added in a statement: “Instead of listening to the concerns of voters upset about the reckless spending that has pushed our national debt to an all-time high; the failed stimulus that has not created jobs and the unpopular government takeover of our health care system that hurts our seniors, Senator Kerry chooses to insult the intelligence of Americans who believe that our country is headed down the wrong path.”
The elite are running scared aren’t they? And no one better represents the elitists in this country than John F’ing Kerry.
I look forward to the tsunami that’s about to hit these arrogant bastards. Might they drown in their disdain, might they choke on their chutzpah, might they suffocate in their smugness, might they asphyxiate on their aloofness.
Thank God for the know-nothingness that’s about to sweep these wandering dregs of political detritus away.
It’s too bad Kerry won’t be amongst them… this time.
