« Bush Crosses 50% In ABC Poll | Main | Battlegrounders »
CQ reader Jeff Dennis has been thinking about John Kerry's response to the question about homosexuality, in which Kerry managed to bury his campaign in controversy by using Dick Cheney's daughter as a rhetorical prop. Jeff thinks about how Bush might have handled a similar question in a compassionate-conservative manner, and he came up with this hilarious dialogue:
Q: Mr. President, in your last campaign you were heard over an open microphone describing a New York Times reporter as a "major league as***le."
To understand how you came to that conclusion, I want to ask you a more basic question. Do you believe being an as***le is a choice?
A: I just don't know. I do know that we have a choice to make in America and that is to treat people with tolerance and respect and dignity. It's important that we do that.
I think if you were to talk to Senator Kerry, who is an as***le, he would tell you that he's being who he is, he's being who he was born as. I've met people who struggled with this for years.
And I've met wives who are supportive of their husbands or vice versa when they finally sort of broke out and allowed themselves to live who they were, who they felt God had made them.
And that's to be honored.
Thanks for a great laugh, Jeff!Sphere It View blog reactions
