| Kerry Ready to "pre-challenge" Election Results
Kerry rarely mentions the legal battle over the 2000 election while campaigning, but he did so repeatedly in the state that was the epicenter four years ago. Responding to a voter who asked, “What can you do to prevent them from stealing the election again?”, Kerry, a lawyer and former Massachusetts prosecutor, said his campaign was assembling a legal team to examine districts which had problems.

“We’re going to pre-check it, we’re going to have the legal team in place. … We’re going to take injunctions where necessary ahead of time. We’ll pre-challenge if necessary,” the four-term Massachusetts senator said.

Great. I suppose all our soldiers overseas better make sure they dot every i and cross every t or expect Kerry to have their vote tossed out.

No Mark! Kerry wouldn’t do that… Would he? Would a Democrat have the military votes not counted? Really? What Kerry ought to do is just concede it now. He’s comin’ in dog-last if he thinks he’s going to have the overseas military votes tossed.

This is so classic Kerry — he just tosses out some slimy allegation that he can’t substantiate, but is prepared for, and then disclaims knowing whether it’s true or false, but that it’s important so everybody ought to talk about it. And all the while, waffle boy keeps alleging that Bush is the liar.

Plenty of chutzpah, but what a disingenuous a-hole.

******Responding to a voter who asked, “What can you do to prevent them from stealing the election again?”, Kerry, a lawyer and former Massachusetts prosecutor, said his campaign was assembling a legal team to examine districts which had problems.*******

By ‘them’, he must be refering to the unethical democrats that were working at the voting sites. You see, the ONLY way to have a ‘hanging chad’ or ‘demples’, was if you had multiple ballots in the machine at one time……….so one democrat vote equals how many exactly? 10 ? Every republican vote equals 1. Who exactly was trying to steal the election?

This Kerry should change his first name to Jim……he’s damn near as funny.

For a “leader” to give credence to the “they stole the election” lie is disqualifying.

But what a message of hope. Vote for me or I sue.

Posted by: jones at March 8, 2004 08:52 PM

Sue, Sue!! Sounds like Edwards has a new job to do, other than looking like the Breck Girl!!
Kerry’s face look like he’s already dead…that would make a good ad, with a flag draped over his coffin, and the caption…”there goes a patriot turned traitor, we bury him without his medals, because he threw them away!!”

Posted by: DickD at March 8, 2004 10:35 PM

Kerry, like Clinton, has learned that it doesn’t cost a penney to throw out lies and false accusations. But the rewards are handsome. The wilder the accusation, the better. Keep your opponent swatting the flies you release.

I hate fu-kin’ losers like that.

Posted by: Jeff B at March 8, 2004 11:19 PM

yes thats it!! we will pre-challenge!!!!

why,…. the voting wont even have begun and my crack legal team will be out trying to discredit and have it thrown out….

Posted by: rumcrook at March 8, 2004 11:20 PM

Isn’t it funny…….since 9/11, we’ve come to realize who our real enemies are…….The liberals and the media they control, have taken a seat right beside the terrorists.

I have a question for all these liberal, mental midgets that were brainwashed by some gay/lesbian professor at the state university, that their hard working parents paid for them to attend, unknowing that a homosexual deviate with a brain that could only be compared to ‘mush’, would be smokin’ pot and havin’ sex with their children, need to answer.

“This country is based on Christianity and a capitalist government. What makes you think you can come here and change it to socialism/communism ? Leave us the fu-k alone. We’re not interested in become any of those things and we’re sick and tired of turning the other cheek while you march in the streets and publicly spout lies and false accusations. If you want to see Civil War II (don’t look for it at BlockBuster), just keep badmouthing and undermining those that are doing they’re best to salvage this country.

Kerry knows he’s going to loose, so he has his crack team already working on how they are going to say “Bush stole the election”

LMAO I love it. keep digging that hole kerry, every time he opens his mouth, he gets deeper.

By the time the real campaign starts, it will already be over. He might as well concede now, so Bush can get on with his job.

“Kerry, a lawyer … We’re going to take injunctions where necessary ahead of time … We’ll pre-challenge.” This is amazing. I am a lawyer. No court acting constitutionally can even hear a case before a controversy in fact exists. No hearing can occur, let alone action taken, until afterward. A court cannot act on supposistion. He knows this. “Stealing the election again”? If I recall, the final statewide vote had W winning - nothing was stolen

Clyde You must remember, there were numerous hangin’ chad that were left hangin’. Our friend DON was one of them. He’s still hangin’. I don’t think that November will be a repeat of last time (with the DemoCandidate losing his home state), but I think Kerry better start wearin’ advertising for Heinz 57, because Botox just went up in price. I just keep remembering the POW-MIAs that he abandoned, and the lies he told about atrocities. That’s enough to convince me he’s the wrong person for the job.

Posted by: Cap'n DOC at March 9, 2004 07:36 AM

Never Fear, Doc. Every single Traitorous lie he
told is RECORDED in Senate testimony. He has
already hung himself.

Posted by: leaddog2 at March 9, 2004 08:53 AM

John Kerry leads Bush 52% - 44%, largely because people say Kerry would handle domestic issues better.”

Posted by: x at March 9, 2004 12:21 PM

To bad truth isn’t a democracy X. Let’s see what they think in a few months after Kerry’s put under the microscope. I hope he implodes like Dean, Yearg!

Posted by: Brian at March 9, 2004 12:30 PM

Its interesting that Kerry has virtually admitted he would need a lawyer to win this election.

Hardly shows a great deal of confidence in his campaign abilities, does it?

Posted by: Daniel Polwarth at March 9, 2004 12:43 PM

Doc, I agree that Florida ballots were a fiasco. But recall that the counters - the recounters, actually - were not friendly, yet their verdicts were consistent. If they could have supported a method that yielded a Gore victory, they would have bleated it non-stop to this day.

Posted by: Clyde at March 9, 2004 01:29 PM

“Kerry, a lawyer … We’re going to take injunctions where necessary ahead of time … We’ll pre-challenge.”

I think Kerry is out of touch with reality. Didn’t his lovely wife explain to him that ‘Minority Report’ was make beleive. He probably thinks that if he get’s into office, he’ll have access to all that really cool top secret stuff.

Posted by: Jeff B at March 9, 2004 05:46 PM

X, haven’t you wondered why kerry will not release the medical records involving the circumstances in which he received his purple hearts, which 4 days after he recommended himself for one, requested state side service?

3 purple hearts, yet he was only sick one day for unknown reasons?

How he somehow skippered a swift boat in a temperate zone that saw little action, yet received a bronze star, a silver star, and 3 purple hearts, yet had time to do all his duty reports, film practically every day, his days with his crew, water skiing, goofing around, and on top of that write 3000 words a day in his personal memoirs, and burn down villages, lay down harassing fire, torture and rape people, shoot dogs, livestock, and poison food supplies, all this super human stuff in under 4 months?

I can’t believe anyone would vote for someone like that to lead a nation, unless of course you don’t live in this nation.

Posted by: Fat Guy at March 9, 2004 08:33 PM

There’s a story which i believe is on Rush Limbaughs website. Apparently there were 10 not 9 band of brothers aboard the John Kerry Boat.

A 10th one was recently discovered by Brinkely. He wrote a column in a Chicago newspaper. Anyhow.. Too keep it short this 10th person says John Kerry ran away from every fight. That he was basically a coward on that boat and that he plans on voting for Bush and sees John Kerry as another Bill Clinton.

Jeff B. has got it right, this is a Christian nation, has always been, will always be…This is a known fact, that these small{liberal} socialist, communist, marxist, leftist groups of dope smokin, constitutional rewrighting, homomaniac lovin, government defying trouble makers, have always tried at one point or the other,to distorted, mangled and demized the truth to the gulible, unknowing, uneducated and poor lower class citizens of these great United States of America. I say if you don’t like moral living, family values, capitalism etc etc, they have a place for you, in one of the following countries China, Russia, Canada, Iraq, Iran, North Korea etc etc…..It was once said by an educated writer, that “the United States would not be destroyed from without, but from within…”the KJV Bible says that “a house divided against its self cannot and will not stand” Getting lawyers and voting cops at the voting polls will only infuriate an already bad situation. Fact of the matter is, we’ve read of long past nations failures and down falls(immoral lifestyles, vulgar and cummunist bias media, political scandals government corruption and deceitfulness) yes all these things happen to the past nations such as the ROMAN EMPIRE, MEDO-PERSIA and OLD BABYLON due to inter social divisions. What I see in America today, we will be doomed to repeat past nations falls and failures probably sooner rather than later… mark my words. So when going to the election polls better be sure and know something of the person you vote for, one president could destroy an entire NATION just as one BAD apple can, will, and does ruin and entire bunch of apples…America there is still alot of good law abiding, GOD fearing people out there, we just need to get to the voting polls, if it means getting there at the last minute to cast our vote… Let NOT AMERICA MORALLY, SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALLY PARISH SO SOON…

First time to this post site. Just found it off of a link from a GOOGLE search: “Kerry 2004 elections legal team already in place” I like the way you guys think! Is there anywhere you go to “politically chat”? If so, let me know. Maybe if someone does have a “political chat” you can post it and share it with all of us so that we can “share our love for the as*hole” at a faster pace.

Chux, Tell us what you really think about the bed wetting, knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, mental masterbating, commie pinko, liberals.
