For Some Kerry Fans, No Joy in Mudville
And end up looking like Pee Wee Herman to their Hulk Hogan. . . .
They say the road to hell is paved with bricks of good intention,
But frankly I'm more worried about our Democrats' Convention.
I fear that it will turn into a shiny happy hug-fest
While Republicans cork their bats and prepare for a slugfest.
Kid's got a real future as a poet. Maybe not much of one with the Kerry campaign.
Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Media?
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has been accused of dodging the media recently because his popularity has fallen off a tad. This is flatly untrue. Why, just Friday he gave an interview to Blanquita Cullum of conservative Radio America.
Rumsfeld was more than willing to be grilled by the talk show host, and the interview didn't turn out to be a contentious session. The end of the Pentagon-supplied transcript indicates why Cullum wasn't particularly rough on him.
Cullum: "Thank you, Mr. Secretary."
Rumsfeld: "Well, thank you, Blanquita. It's fun to talk to you, and I hope to do it again."
Cullum: "Well, you know I'm one of your big fans. I love you a lot."
Rumsfeld: "Oh, terrific. Come and see us when you're in Washington."
Cullum: "Well, I live here. In fact, I work for the president. I'm on the Broadcasting Board of Governors for you guys."
Rumsfeld: "Well, for Pete's sake, why doesn't [Pentagon spokesman] Larry DiRita get you over here someday?
