"A normal 10-minute descent turned into 45 minutes. Nearly everyone tumbled
repeatedly and often stopped to catch a breath. Even the agents struggled,
and a couple gave up and donned snowshoes for the final stretch. "

Great, just what we need, a president who can outdistance his Secret Service
detail.

The Secret Service can't possibly look forward to protecting a guy like
Kerry. First, he's 6'3" isn't he? Hardly the type to blend into a crowd;
I'm sure they'd much prefer somebody 5'8. Second, a cyclist? What are they
gonna do, hire all of Lance's guys after Lance retires?

One of the disc wheel makers made the secret service some bullet proof
wheels but will they sell neat stuff like that to the public? No.

Dear R.K.,

Do you mean Victor F. or his pride and joy?

Lord, I'd be old enough to need botox for my
wrinkles by now if I weren't dead.

A venerable practice which, sadly, is accessible to far too few.

Don't forget one former president ran for office as a governor on a pro gun
platform, and then changed his tune when president.

I'd love it if we did have a pro-cycling president but I'll believe it when
I see it. Too many favors to repay and too many ol' boys to appease ...

Darn right! If I was president, I would create a program to make women
rich, and then get them lined up with eligible bachelors.

And they'd get to honeymoon on Big Rock Candy Mountain,

Usually, the taller candidate usually wins:

Reagan over Carter
Clinton over Bush
Clinton over Dole
Gore over Bush...

Not to mention one current president.
BTW, Kerry has been an "avid participant" in every sport
imaginable, including hunting, for about a year now.
He just wants everybody to think he's "one of us".

That assumes that the voters are unable to make a decision based on
anything more substantive than the physical appearance of the
candidates. Sadly, for a significant and likely decisive portion of
the electorate, that's about where we're at.

Besided, I object to referring to our President as Curious George. I
don't think he's curious about anything.

I was thinking Skeletor (for those of you young enough for Thundarr
and the Barbarians).

App, who, despite Kerry's appearance, will vote against the
Bush/Cheney/Rove Triumvirate of Pure Evil again.

Way to easy to comment here, so please award me the extra ponts for
keeping my mouth virtually shut.

Re: John Kerry: Frankenstein



I know what you mean and glad that someone else can see it. Kerry's too
aloof, and yes, it's disturbing. Another Presidential election year with
two very undesirable candidates. I keep wondering where Nader stands on the
issues. Oh well, that's politics -- not bicycles.

Too aloof for what? You planning on inviting the next President to dinner?
Do you imagine Lincoln as a back-slapping bud? Think Washington was a
cut-up, that FDR liked to slip whoopie cushions under Stalin when he wasn't
looking atYalta just for yucks?

Why not look at what they've done, what they said they would do, and what
they say they will do. Leave the popularity contests to the highschoolers
and the Miss America Pageant.

In what way, specifically, is John Kerry "aloof"? I mean, you have
some specifics, right? And of course, those specifics would
demonstrate how said aloofness is reflected in his views on public
policy.

Why do you care where he stands on the issues? I thought this was a
beauty contest, and Nader's not any prettier than Kerry or Bush, so
what's the point? Our country is in an endless war and headed for
economic ruin, so it's important that we elect a president who is cute
and fun to party with.

Hey JP,

Wouldn't it be funny if they each got exactly 33.33333333% of the
vote?

Ah hell, good luck to you and your candidate this Nov., be it Kerry,
Bush, Nadar, Arnold, Edwards, Juliani, Coleman, McCain, Hillary, The
Pope, Jesus Christ, Mel Gibson, or who ever else is being mentioned
these days.
