which candidate has better comic potential, bush or kerry?
cartoonists are making billions, as are comics with bush, the stupidest president we've ever had. they had a field day with bill clinton, and still are. kerry's only comic weight is his tediousness as a speaker, his similarity to herman munster, and his rich wife's ketchup empire.

but with bush, you have a limitless universe of potential stupidity and bungling and word mangling. if it weren't so horribly tragic, it would be extra hilarious i guess.

if bush goes, i'll miss his ugly ass monkey face, and his coke burnt syntax. but i won't miss his serial killer, mass murdering war criminal side. or his pirates of the treasury side, or his take over the whole world to end it side.

but he's funnier than kerry

1. well, with Bush you can just air clips of him speaking
without having to change anything and there is LOTS of comic potential in that.

with clinton they had all the sex stuff but they still had to make up jokes. with bush they don't even really have to make much up.

so, yeah, bush easily has better comic potential.

More like white-knuckled, semi-hysterical, nervous cuz he's gonna get us all killed funny.

Making fun of presidents has been comedians bread and butter for decades but they're afraid to make fun of monkey face or else he might send Cheney or Rummy to pay them a visit some night at 2:00 AM. :scared:

5. Maybe, but boy does Edwards make up for it.
And I don't think Kerry is all that bad either. Now Cheyney, that's another story. God I hope they threw away that mold, especially with that snarl. Uuuuhhhh

6. Kerry is as good-looking as any man his age who takes care of himself
I have heard him referred to as "ruggedly handsome," and that's appropriate. At least he isn't vain about his butt and hair like the chimp is :eyes:

7. Kerry's tendency to pontificate and his intellect could be funny
I guess...but GWB provides material without embellishment. MKJ
