I’m telling you, John Kerry’s sore throat and laryngitis is reminiscent of Bill Clinton in 1992.
Victory speech coming shortly.
UPDATE, 9:09 PM MST: Teddy Kennedy and his giant head are introducing John Kerry right now. The audio keeps cutting in and out.
UPDATE, 9:10 PM MST: “Last night, the New England Patriots won. Tonight, this New Englander won, and you’ve sent me on the way to the Super Bowl.” Which is… New Hampshire? I guess.
“Thank you, Iowa, for making me the Comeback Kerry.”
UPDATE, 9:13 PM MST: John Kerry is crediting a four-leaf clover given to him by a woman at an Iowa barn a few days ago with rejuvenating his campaign.
Kerry is making his pitch for Gephardt’s voters now. “He is a special public servant, ladies and gentleman.”
UPDATE, 9:15 PM MST: “J.K. all the way!” Hmm… Harry Potter fans?
UPDATE, 9:18 PM MST: Kerry to “special interests” in the Bush White House: “We’re coming, you’re going, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
UPDATE, 9;20 PM MST: “We will hold this president accountable for making a mockery of the words ‘Leave No Child Behind.’” Yee-ah!! But, hmm… didn’t Ted Kennedy work together with Bush on that bill?
UPDATE, 9:23 PM MST: “We are not going to give one benefit or one reward to any Benedict Arnold company that takes their jobs and their money overseas and sticks you with the bill. That’s over.”
“I will appoint an attorney general who is not John Ashcroft.” Wait… wait… John Kerry is NOT going to re-appoint John Ashcroft??? I’m SHOCKED!!! :)
UPDATE, 9:25 PM MST: “Karl Rove and George Bush have already announced that they’re going to run this campaign on national security.” –Kerry
“Bring it on!” –a supporter
Bigger heh: “I look forward to reminding them that I know something about aircraft carriers for real.” Hahaha.
UPDATE, 9:27 PM MST: Provisionally… I like Kerry. Good speaker. Seems like a good candidate.
