    Why 'No Surprise'? http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/mt/archives/002439.php

    Now for the meat:

    http://www.newsday.com/news/nationw...,2880282.story?coll=ny-nationalnews-headlines

    Note, the assumption is that the Kerry campaign, like the Dukakis were in the 'right'. The bad GOP clobbered them by meaness and falsehoods. BS! to the Nth degree!

    If nothing else, Kerry is good for some interesting new phrases

    "all hat, no cattle"
    "we're going to take the wood to them"

    are these common everywhere except Wisconsin or something? I mean, I can see the wood thing as maybe being like a wooden rod you beat people with, but WTF can "all hat, no cattle" possibly mean?

    Kerry stole the "All hat,No cattle" line from John Mccain,who said that about Bush when he ran against him in the primaries. It's supposed to mean a wannabe cowboy ( I think anyway...).

    I can understand his misstatement above. I may be naive, but wth does he mean with, "we're going to take the wood to them"? Sounds perverse, but I may be wrong....

    But why did Kerry use it? Does he want to be the real cowboy now? Is he critisizing Bush for not being enough of one? I thought Dems hated cowboys! Im so confused :dunno: its time for bed
