7. For ones who will say stop bashing Kerry this is NOT bashing.
Calling Kerry out to get involved is similar to when you were a kid asking if Johnny can come out to play. It is not bashing.

I'm beginning to become suspicious of posters here who are calling this bashing and to give it a rest. I gave it rest and now that we are in what seems to be the ninth inning I can't rest any longer.

We can separate the ones who are actually bashing Kerry from the ones who are calling Kerry. The people who are actually bashing Kerry are the ones who are screaming at Kerry, because (as in past tense) he did not get involved in the recount.

I don't want this election to be remembered as "the recount efforts went to third party candidates" as Kerry was no where to be involved. When are the ones saying give Kerry a rest going to stop resting? When the ball game is over?

The presidential election was pretty much run on "anyone but shrub". Yet we all know without Kerry we would never have gotten this far or this close in the election. Yes - it is bigger than Kerry. But it is not being taken seriously because it is being done by a third party.
