DRUDGE: 'You're Not Going To Have To Look For Us On Vacation'...
"So here's what we're going to fight for, and we're going to fight for it every single day, not just through this election, but from the day we win until the day we raise our hands and every day thereafter. You're not going to have to look for us on vacation. You're going to find us working for America." --- Kerry Delivers Remarks At Campaign Event, Cleveland, OH, 7/7/04

Kerry has missed more than 80% of Senate votes this year, the AP reports.

XXXMatt DrudgeXXX has to be the laziest fuck in "journalism". Most of the photographs are taken in campaign stops and charity events. The hockey game was at a fundraiser for firefighters. Is this the latest campaign tactic? Something tells me this story idea was faxed in directly from the RNC...

1. If this is the best that Drudge can dredge up on Kerry
Then Kerry must be clean as a whistle.

Drudge is looking awfully foolish, which is nothing new.

...Capo (Kapo), trustee, an SS appointed prisoner who was the head of a labor squad. He or she retained this privileged position by terrorizing subordinate prisoners.

The Capos were an instrument of the camp regime of humiliation and cruelty, and their role was to break the spirits of the prisoners.

The Capos had warm clothing, enough to eat and lived in a reserved section to the prison barracks. In many instances Capos who mistreated prisoners were put on trial after the war.

Drudge, Matt. FOD and egg fetishist who's done great damage to his gay brothers and sisters by aiding the cause of fascists, intolerant orthodox Christians, and conservative scum. Ethically challenged hypocritical lackey and moral catamite to right-wingers. We remember you from the old days, Matt-o, and when you fall back to obscurity we'll be waiting with sharpened knives.

11. I hope those are rhetorical "sharpened knives" only.
That sounds pretty violent.

3. Poor Matthew was hoping to reinvigerate/mock the "Kerry is imploding"
campaign...remember that? Here's V1.2 of that failure of an attempt.

If anybody, this whole election season has been Drudge's own undoing... remember the who'll "affair" with the hot blonde?

Matthew, you're no goddamn Walter Winchell. So retire that stupid-ass looking (on you) fedora where it belongs, in the second-hand store, and realize that you had your one shot, and one shot only, and you've been lobbing a volley of duds ever since.

Matt, you're the Enquirer of the internet, bro!

10. re: "poor matthew"
> "the "Kerry is imploding" campaign...remember that?

and how! hannity, rush, et.al. were all over it. "Kerry dropped the 'f' word, he *must* be losing it." and what was up with that "Bush Sees Surge In Polls" headline, and that really bad picture. ugh!

and then there's the "good old days" of "Clinton Fathers Black Child" with that sad siren.gif file going.

... paris.

7. no it is not....the votes he has missed were while campaigning...
when he flew back the rethugs would change the vote time or day....he has to calculate what he can miss or not....

and if he gave up his seat ...mitt romney the far right gov of mass would appoint a rethug......

so it is a calculated lost but .....it is not big deal.....he has gone back for the most important...and then they stone wall him anyway...this is a catch 22...can't win

He is very intelligent and doing the right thing....he is up on everything he needs to be up on....

23. Hmmm, well, I find it hard to believe
That every vote he should be there for, he was thwarted. Im sure his constituents did not vote for him to be out campaigning, rather Im sure they want him doing his job, which is voting in the Senate when the need arises. Oh and his voting record seems pretty consistent even back through 2003. He wasnt running for office then.

Interesting to note that here:

http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/r...

To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit profiteering and fraud relating to military action, relief, and reconstruction.

Vote Counts:

YEAs 46
NAYs 52
Not Voting 2

Guess who the two are.

I hope I dont hear either Kerry or Edwards talking about Halliburton from here on out. Im actually quite disappointed in Kerry at this point. While he has a lot of good character strength, apparently showing up for work is not one of his strong ones.

6. Boy does this make me want to get in shape....this man is older
than I and way more active and kinda hot looking....

I love watching kite surfing....really cool looking.

If this guy can do all this at his age, I want to at least do half as much.....

Kerry gets weekends and other days off. Not a whole month like bush..and kerry works from 6 am to midnight in many time zones....he has been working his butt off...

they are so jealous that he is so active and so good at it...has smart wife....great VP....two hot looking guys and wonderful smart women....this is a dream ticket and this rethugs are losers...

15. While I have mixed feelings over Drudge's "developing news" items....
This is nothing more than a slam piece and shouldn't be in LBN.

18. How about over his Senate career?
Anyone have the numbers on his attendance during his entire time in the Senate? I'm too lazy to do my own research, but I bet it's better than 20%.

Hey Sid- I seem to recall that the quote from "Unknown" on your posts comes from The Red Green show that was on a few years ago. I could be wrong...
