Pic Thread.






















Anyone have that pic of the kids from Iowa trying to get him to drink form the beer bong? You know the one. The one that shows John can't reach regular people.

1. Sure do.






I posted this one because of the similarities in how JK looks in this photo and the top one in your post. (GV's photo.) I thought of this photo right away when I saw GV's.

6. wow
he really has the "mr president" look down . not just his physical appearance but his posture, smile and everything. he looks so confidant and in charge there. he is looking really good these days.

not sure anyone else comes as close to the President look. that's why the right wing felt the need to show phony images of him like the surfing one. with the Chimp we just need to show a real clip of him, not change anything.

Lil Kim looks classy. Who's the other guy? I'm not too sure who he is.

11. Those are great of Ford
Was this from 2004? Wasn't he one of the first to endorse Kerry? I wish Kerry would come and campaign for Ford. That would be great. :)

13. I just finished reading the New Yorker article about Webb
Edited on Sun Oct-29-06 03:35 PM by beachmom
Unfortunately, they failed to tell the story of how Webb went from refusing to shake Kerry's hand to asking for and getting his endorsement, fundraising dollars, and a campaign appearance.

That is a remarkable story, and quite frankly, I want to hear more. Why did Webb have a change of heart? If you read in the New Yorker, he HATED Ivy League "aristrocrat" types he went to school with at Georgetown. Kerry, of course, went to Vietnam, yet Webb seemed to reserve his largest contempt for Kerry. What changed? Was it just political expediency? Quite frankly, I doubt it. Webb is not a phony -- he can't fake things. So if he still was pissed at Kerry, I think he wouldn't have bothered courting his support. So what gives? SOMEBODY needs to tell that story. A real pity the New Yorker has stuck with the rest of the press in deciding Kerry is dead (they only mentioned that Webb wouldn't shake his hand, no follow up of what happened after), when they could have made a good story even more dramatic.

I already grilled Webb blogger Lowell when it happened; he didn't have any details.

Edited to add, this is the article I'm talking about:

http://www.newyorker.com/fact/content/articles/061030fa...

When Webb, debilitated by shrapnel wounds received in an action that earned him the Navy Cross, was forced to retire from the military, he enrolled at the Georgetown University Law Center, and stepped directly into the culture divide. He hated his time at Georgetown, largely because of his encounter with an attitude that caught him wholly unaware. It seemed to him that many of his classmates had been untouched by Vietnam (except for a gain in self-regard, accrued from opposition to what they deemed an immoral war). Webb concluded that they not only had figured out ways to avoid the risk and sacrifice of military service but had convinced themselves, as they proceeded along their education and career tracks, that theirs was the true heroism of the time. Inspired by his rage, he decided to write Fields of Fire, which included a series of withering cameo portrayals of Ivy League graduates who worked the system to avoid service. Some day he will write speeches for great politicians, he wrote of one character. Tim Forbes will confess his boondoggle, and we will admire his honesty. He only did what everybody else was doing. Webb could recite the minuscule number of men killed in Vietnam who, by his count, had matriculated at the lite colleges (Harvard, twelve; Princeton, six; M.I.T., two) compared with the vast numbers from public schools.


Come to think of it, some of these "elites" sound like neocons, aka, chickenhawks. I think chickenhawks are FAR worse than chickendoves (if you will), who are at least principled in their avoidance of service to being opposed to the war.
