Once the President’s Day is Over, The Battle Will Begin Anew

Before John Kerry and other Senators from both parties took their places on President Bush’s inaugural stage, Kerry offered a statement of defiance:

Democracy means working together for the good of our country; it also means keeping faith with your ideals, never retreating from core convictions even as you work to find common ground,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in a statement released earlier Thursday.

“We have strong differences and we argue and fight with all our hearts and energy, and our system endures because we Americans expect nothing less,” he said.

Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, had no plans to attend any other inaugural festivities.

I posted a diary about Senator Kerry on Daily Kos appropriate for this Inauguration Day. Because of the huge volume on the website it fell off the front screen within 30 minutes. I thought you guys on this website would appreciate it.

I think we may outflank and outsmart the Chimp People yet, if we just keep fighting, and work together.

I was shocked to learn that Republicans in attendance were so crass as to have actually booed Senator Kerry. One man was even heard to shout out the word "loser." These people just ooze with the milk of human kindness. Weren't these self same folks supposed to be the defenders of moral values? Mean spiritedness must be a new moral value, I guess. Senator Kerry is a true gentleman and his behavior today should serve as an example to these crude, holier-than-thou hypocrites as an example of something they will never have: CLASS!
