KERRY CHEATING!!!

You have got to be kidding me!!!:

Look at him turn his back to the crowd and open the paper.

Imagine being a tax-payer and thinking “Hey, if Kerry can cheat, so can I.”

Democrats should be ashamed of this candidate. What an insult.

JeffR

Hahahahahah! You are rabid!!!

probably him just getting his pen. I don’t think he is big enough a fool to actually cheat with cameras aimed at him. I dont really like this mud-slinging, we should know better than that. Let the liberals sling their mud, it’s not our thing. We’ll clean up after they’re done, isn’t that what we always do?

In all seriousness, I didn’t realize they had such specific rules on notes, etc.

I thought John Kerry was taking notes with his pen while Bush was talking. I thought nothing of it.

Probably a non-issue, but I thought Kerry was honestly referring to notes most of the night and was thinking Bush should have done the same.

As is, it’s more funny than anything. I don’t think Kerry cheated. Usually when you cheat, you do so to give yourself a big advantage - a quote, a statistic, etc.

Kerry really didn’t explode with a killer quote or stat - if he did cheat, it really didn’t help much.

Where’s the unequivocal proof, Jeff?
Have you had a heart attack over this non-issue, too?
Get a life.

Thanks, ding-dong. Did you watch the video?

Did you read the rules?

Did you catch the unfolding motion?

“Non-issue?” Cheat on your taxes? Cheat on your tests? What other cheating do you consider a “non-issue?” Pray tell.

I love it!!! Imagine if W. had pulled the same stunt!!! It would be: “He’s too dumb to remember his lines…” “He should be disqualified!!!”

Thunder, did you notice that they were to have brought nothing to the podium to stop this very thing from happening?

No one should be surprised. Kerry is an insult.

I love the hypocrisy!!!

JeffR

Bush got thrashed in the debate. This is just a lame attempt at damage control.

All the bloggers in the world can’t make up for the fact that Bush is incompetent.

I found some new enhanced footage that should settle this mystery.

I mean, geeze, no wonder they weren’t supposed to bring anything on stage with them… Who would have thought.

But I suspect Kerry knew.

Your comment makes sense. But then again, Kerry is a very crafty person. Perhaps he didn’t want to make his cheating too obvious, so he didn’t whip out any heavy duty statistics. He probably just had some of his major lines on it, just to make sure he said them exactly as they were prepared.

Whatever the piece of paper was he took out of his breast pocket, unfolded, and placed on the podium doesn’t really matter. It was a clear violation of the mutually agreed upon rules.

Ok, one point, Incubator.

The terms “Democrat” and “open up a can of whoopass” should never be said in teh same sentence.

It’s like oil and water.

I think Kerry chewed gum in class when it wasn’t allowed while he was in high school…

here is a good synapsis of the debate

http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/analysis/toons/2004/10/01/mitchell/index.html

Kerry brought an encephalon to the debate, which gave him an unfair advantage over Bush, who didn’t bring an encephalon.

It was a pen. Big deal.

Jeff, that “report” and the entire idea is totally ridiculous, and it is a testament to your own credibility that you’d run with an “article” like that.

I did think I saw a can of whoopass wide open at the Convocation Center that night, however.


Late Breaking!

Let’s take the Democrats at their word here (I know, I know…)

What if it was just a pen?

Don’t you think it is mildly ignorant to break the rules and open yourself up to these charges?

At least careless?

Hey RSU, I enjoyed your “credibility comment.” Thanks for the laugh.

See you in November!!!

Whatever dude, Kerry turned Bush over and spanked him last Thursday.

Did you look at the high resolution video? That pen was the shape of a 3 by 5 index card.

Of course, if you don’t want to see it, thats okay. Anyways, it’s not important that the liberal candidate possess such a character trait as integrity.

Here is the link to the video file:

Note: When I open the high resolution video in my Quicktime player, it attempts to play at double size. Just choose movie, and then half size to bringit down to normal.

Cute joke. Can you post a link to the high res video…the links in this thread don’t work for some reason…?
