Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse

RIGHT ON RED EXCLUSIVE: Anonymous sources have given RoR this mysterious excerpt of a supposedly upcoming John Kerry campaign speech:
My fellow Americans - we need a President who will make us proud to call ourselves Americans again.

We need an America where the people who shop at Wal-Mart and listen to Toby Keith do not determine the policies that shape our lives.

We need an America where people who wear horn-rims and earth-tone sweaters can read The New York Times on Sundays at Starbucks without having to worry about terror alerts.

We need to get America out of the tractor-pull and onto the bicycle path.

We need an America where Radiohead fans can sleep peacefully at night knowing that Europeans don't hate them.

We need a State Department that knows how to listen to our European allies, the people who not only invented Communism and Fascism, but also started two world wars.

We need a Defense Department, not an Offense Department.

We need a Justice Department that doesn't curtail the civil liberties of Muslim Americans, unless they are smokers.

We need a society where Gay-Americans can choose to marry but cannot choose which public schools they send their adopted children to.

America needs leadership that is sensitive enough not to provoke Islamic extremists, so that we can all go back to what we were doing on September 10, 2001.

We need a strong leader who is not a "born again" fundamentalist. We need a leader who does not have a Southern accent. We need a leader who doesn't spend his vacations riding around in pickup trucks in the middle of nowhere in Texas. We need a leader who sees shades of gray where others see black and white. We need a leader who can spell the word nuance.

This country needs a President who can look the American people in the eye and tell them, I have never waved a giant foam finger in the air at a football game, and I never will.

And most of all, we need a President who can look the American people in the eye and tell them, I have never liberated 50 million people from tyranny and oppression - and I never will.

(DISCLAIMER: I wear horn-rims and sometimes go to Starbucks - JWR).
