Subject: [Fwd: FW: Running Eagle]
I am going to assume this is both a lie and a joke. It is all over the internet in message boards and emails.

San Carlos, AZ-

During a campaign tour of the Apache Nation Wednesday, Democratic
presidential candidate John Kerry said he had a plan to increase every
Native American's income by $40,000 a year. Senator Kerry refused repeated requests for details of his plan, however.

He also told the Apaches that during his Senate career, he has voted YES 9,637 times for every Indian issue ever introduced.

Before his departure, the Apache Tribe presented the Presidential candidate a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, Running Eagle.

After Kerry left, tribal officials explained that Running Eagle
is a bird so full of s___ it can't fly.


I can't find anything to disprove it such as an entry on snopes. I just got it again yesterday from a co-worker who actually believes this is true. My initial reaction was "There is no way Kerry would promise to raise NA's income by $40k/yr. The 9k+ votes is suspect and why would an NA leader dis a possible POTUS like that." Other versions of this have it datelined in June.

Was Kerry even in Arizona in June?

1. What a crock!
Native Americans would NEVER be rude to a guest. Period.

Whoever is sending this BS out is completely out of touch with basic respect for human dignity: it's a shame that no one ever cared enough about this person to teach him/her any manners.

2. I am planning a reply to this crock
and I would like to be armed with a polite, smart response that might cause some of the folks on the long list of recipients to see the stupidity of the originator and those that would pass this along.

3. Crock. Consider:
9,637 votes for Indian issues? How long has Kerry been in office? Figuring in holidays taken etc... He'd have had to vote YES almost every single day in his career on an Indian issue. Kerry's too smart to lie like that.

Wacko Bush supporters, on the other hand...

4. Ask them to back up the claims
Ask them for citations that Kerry made these claims.

when you force a Freeper to document their wild ass lies, they creep back to the darkness they crawled out of.
