a lame-ass attempt at photojournalism
way off bass has a theory up in which he attempts to define who is the real john kerry, and which one is scariest? war pig, opportunist, psycho, pathological liar?

so i thought i'd provide a visual aid. go read his post, then come back here, because, intreped and daring journalist that i am, i spent about twenty minutes sitting on my ass googling up some pics that, i believe, vaugely resemble previously unreleased photos of kerry in each mode:

1. john kerry: a top-secret war hero, doing the government's dirty work despite his misgivings...

"there are no friendly civilians!"

2. john kerry: shifty, cynical, lying, cheating, political opportunist of the worst degree...

"a prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise."
-niccolo machiavelli, 1469-1527

3. john kerry: delusional, megalomanical psychotic that believes his own dangerous lies...

"a spaceship took me to cambodia!"

4. john kerry: pathological liar making shit up as he goes along, half-believing and barely even keeping track of what falls out of his mouth...

"i did not inhale."

so. who is the real john kerry? cameron puts him in the 3.9 level, i try to give him the benefit of the doubt, and assume he's just a garden-variety liar, making him a 2. but you have to wonder...

p.s. i know clinton is sick, and i honestly wish him nothing but the best. some may say that it is in poor taste to take cheap shots at him right now, to which i say, i never claimed to have anything but poor taste.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
