Kerry: Democrats are gullible, easily fooled

Democrats often seem to take it for granted that they're smarter than the average red-state Republican. But according to failed presidential candidate John F. Kerry, it's Democrats, not Bush voters, who come up a bit short in the brains department.

Speaking to a voters' group in Massachusetts over the weekend, Kerry, having already blamed the media, offered up his latest excuse for losing the election: Democrats were tricked into not voting. The Associated Press reports:

Kerry also cited examples Sunday of how people were duped into not voting.

"Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote," he said.
Of course, Kerry offered no evidence that any such leaflets were handed out or phone calls made. But it was a good story, kind of like spending Christmas Eve in Cambodia.

Or was it? Taking Kerry at his word, what he's saying is that Democrats — those paragons of reason and wisdom, who know best what America needs — either didn't know when to vote, or were tricked into staying home.

Not exactly a shining moment for people who think they're superior to the God-fearin' simple folk of Middle America.

I once said I'd stop mocking Kerry when he stops whining about losing the election. Looks like I won't have to quit any time soon.

It isn't that Democrats are dumber, it is because the are so pure and good that they would not only never consider a dirty trick like this, they can't even imagine someone would lie about such a thing and so are easily fooled by the evil Republicans.

Of course, the counterargument I would push is that Kerry is actually a Republican sleeper agent, sent back in time to change the future and ensure 20 years of conservative hegemony.

Now that would be a good movie (assuming Kerry isn't actually in it, and the guy they get to play him doesn't look or sound anything like him).

Kind of like the Terminator meets the Manchurian Candidate...

It's like I said from the day the Dems started saying that Bush tricked them about the WMD in Iraq: Do you want to vote for the guy who was tricked into agreeing to go to war, or the guy who tricked everybody into agreeing to go to war.

Peronally, I'd rather have the smarter guy who pulled a fast one on everybody...

Voter suppression tactics of the very type Sen. Kerry speaks of are well-documented (here , here, here , here, and here (and that's only with 5 minutes of Googling)), very effective and are of obviously critical importance when the electorate is as evenly split as is has been.

Are you seriously contending, as it appears, that Sen. Kerry made it all up?!? I trust you are not that naive.

Also, your purported comraderie with
"the God-fearin' simple folk of Middle America" is suspect. Honestly, its that apostrophe that gives it away.

Well, of COURSE Democrats are dumb enough to fall for that kind of thing.

They nominated Kerry, after all!

From a back issue of the satirical news source The Onion (Kerry's source?): MIAMI, FL—With the knowledge that the minority vote will be crucial in the upcoming presidential election, Republican Party officials are urging blacks, Hispanics, and other minorities to make their presence felt at the polls on Wednesday, Nov. 3.

“Minority voters should make their unique voices heard, especially the African-American voting bloc, which is always a major factor in every election,” said Florida Republican Party voter-drive organizer Mark Monreal, as he handed out flyers at a community center in the mostly black Miami neighborhood of South Farms. “That’s why we put up hundreds of brightly colored banners featuring Martin Luther King Jr. and the ‘Vote November 3’ reminder. We needed to make sure they know when we want them at polling places.”

Excellent work, Anonymous!

I remembered that article in the Onion, but couldn't link to it because it's in their subscriber-only archives.

It seems to me that Kerry is just repeating stuff he's heard. But even if all of his claims of "dirty tricks" were proven true, do you really think that Democrats were fooled by such tactics — and in numbers great enough to affect the outcome of the election?

If indeed they were fooled by such tactics it begs the question of whether their vote should count to in the first place. Do you want people that can't even get the election date right to determine the future of your country?
