The Terrorist "Nuisance"

Shouting into the Wind was all about the quotes yesterday with humorous results.

My favorite quote from Jesse Jackson (who is now part of Team Kerry): "November 2, the power is in your hands, hands that once picked cotton." Last I checked, cotton hasn't been handpicked since the 1930's, so unless most of these people are over 70, I don't think any of them have actually picked cotton. I could be wrong

The finale? This paragraph about a Kerry quote in New York Times Magazine:

The worst thing Kerry said in a New York Times Magazine article (need subscription to read): "We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance." If true, he has no clue how to fight the GWOT and he should under no circumstances be elected. He talks about terrorism like it is just a "small issue". How absurd. It is the central focus of our lives because the terrorists WANT TO KILL US and are trying to do it practically every day. I don't know about you, but until that stops, I'm going to consider them a bit more than a 'nuisance'. Idiot.

This is more evidence of Kerry's fundamental misunderstanding of the Global War on Terror.

(Shawna links the article and has more excerpts from it in this post.)
