Care to Refute: John Kerry looks like a bad Muppet
Some clown is posting all sorts of nonsense comments at Liberal Values. Here's one which I thought someone from here might want to refute:

I_Must_B_Wrong Says:

Is it just me or does John Kerry look like a bad Muppet? Maybe a living bobblehead. Hmm

2. That's a refutation?
I was expecting something a little more positive about Kerry than:

A badly-formed Muppet, or a Muppet who like, beats you up and steals your lunch money?

3. Sorry, Dr. Ron.
I need more info before I pick this guy apart, which I hope I'll get a chance to do.

4. Posts all over
The guy has multiple posts responding to multiple comments, but other than being a conservative there's no real info on him.

5. Yeah, it seems like he's just being a pest.
And what an inelegant metaphor. Sigh.

6. I thought people here would have more to say about this
Edited on Thu Sep-14-06 05:34 PM by Dr Ron
There's posts here all the time with girls droolling over Kerry. Someone says he looks like a Muppet and nobody wants to post a positive comment in response?

on edit, looks like I missed one defense:

I agree, John Kerry would look bad as a bad muppet, sure, but a handsome, presidential human. No one who is that classly could look like a muppet. Muppets are pretty silly and foolish looking - unlike John Kerry, who has never looked silly or foolish.

8. If you really think it's urgent,
you can go ahead and delete my comment, and I will re-post directly, drooling liberally (in all senses of the word.)

10. That's Vektor's arena
Nothing does the trick quite like a Vektor haiku.

18. I don't know if I want to admit to that piece of foolishness
especially as the first sentence became incoherent as it was editted.

7. He's done it before
If being said to look like a muppet is the worst thing ever said about the dignified, Presidential MA Senator, he's in great shape. (That's just dumb - besides Edwards looks more like a muppet than Kerry does.)

9. Right, that's why I just made fun of him instead of arguing.
Muppets are cute.

11. Realize being made fun of?
I just thought that he might see the comment as agreeing with him in making fun of Kerry as rather than opposing him.

No big deal. Kerry has survived far worse than an idiot posting comments like this.

Now I just got a message thru the blog software saying:

Password Lost and Changed for user: I_Must_B_Wrong

Fool just made the pass word and alrready forgot it. Unfortunatley this means he's probably coming back!

watching his back under enemy fire?

14. I replied, but I did so a bit too quickly.
No way to edit mistakes and melodramatic writing.

:blush:

I get upset when I read this kind of crap.

WTF does his appearance have to do with anything? Seriously, would it even matter if John Kerry looked like John Merrick as long as he was doing his job?

17. BTW, the distinguished Senator from Massachusetts
Edited on Thu Sep-14-06 06:59 PM by TayTay
does not look like a muppet, although he does have a rather small mouth. He is also much too tall for muppet-dom and way, way too thin.

Mr. Kerry, with his elegant salt n pepper hair, looks more like a distinguished statesman and orator. (Unless he is in uniform to play sports. Then he looks like he wants to have some fun.) This is, of course, levened by that twinkle that he sometimes gets in his eyes, after he has laid down a really good punch on an opponent.

23. That's why I said (here, not there) that John Edwards looks more
like a muppet - his face shape is far more common for a muppet and he has a mouth that goes almost from one end of his face to the other when he smiles. He also has lots of hair.

I saw way to many muppets - including full size ones at a show. The kids also had Shalom Sesame with Israeli muppets.

22. I love muppets!
But I have to say that the Senator is very unmuppet-like.
He does have lots of hair, but I think muppets are more furry than hairy. Except, perhaps, Harry Monster, who is one of my favorite muppets and is, indeed, Harry.
:shrug:
Anyway, I posted.
