Perkel Endorses Dean

OK – so I’m going to go ahead and make my endorsement. I have come to the conclusion that Dean was the winner months ago – but it’s time I said it. If it were close between the candidates then I would say – let the best man win. But – it’s not close – so I’m going to declare Dean the winner.

Why Dean – well, first – let’s start the process on emimination. Al Sharpton is just a political opportunist who came to fame over the faked Twanna Brawly incident. Like Jesse Jackson, he’s another Martin Luther King wannabe. And not nearly as good at it as Jackson. But – he does add entertainment to the debate.

Gephardt, Lieberman, Edwards and Kerry all voted for Bush’s war. All of them giving Bush a Monica. If we’re going to be stuck in Iraq – we already have the right president for that.

Dick Gephardt – he might as well be Bush’s cheerleader who stumped hard for Bush to get his Iraq war. He has this funny idea that he can beat Bush by sucking up to him. Gephardt is little more than a whore for unions and definitely does not have the vision thing. He’s part of the problem – not the solution.

Joe Lieberman – extreme right wing Jew and religious whaco. Plays the holocaust card every chance he gets. His politics is about the same as the right wing kabal leading Israel who like Bush want to get into a religious war of mutual extermination. Lieberman has yet to figure out that it’s a 7 day a week job – not 6. And – if Gore had picked Kerry instead of Lieberman – Bush wouldn’t be in the whitehouse today.

Speaking of Kerry – I like him – he’s interesting. Too bad he voted for Bush’s war. Kerry was probably passed over because he had Clinton’s libedo before he married the Heinz widdow and became a billionaire.

Then there’s John Edwards. Good looking guy – but he too voted with Bush for the war. And – he’s a lawyer and even though he covers it well – I keep hearing the lawyer double speek half twised truth thing that lawyers are trined to do – and I’m no fan of lawyers.

Carol Mosly Braun – an obscure candidate from Chicago who was swept to power with Clinton winning a senate seat in 1992. I can’t remember if she was defeated in 1998 or was in the middle of some scandal, but, she’s just to obscure.

Likewise – there’s Dennis. Last name is to long and doesn’t fit well on a bumper sticker. He’s a good guy – he gets it on the war issue – but too far left and way to obscure – basicly – not much to get excited about.

I almost forgot Clark – as several people have pointed out. I like Clark. I think he’s a good guy and I would be glad if he becomes part of Deans team. But Clark has one serious flaw and that he’s never held public office before. And going form noting to president is just too big of a step. Of course – as compared to Bush anyone would make a good president. Another reservation is that I just don’t trust military thinking in a civilian leadership job. Unlike some candidates, I could support Clark – but as compared to Dean – Dean wins.

And – who does that leave? Dean! Fortunately he’s not a loser too. Like Clinton – he’s strong – on top of things – and has the vision thing. He gets it about the war. Something very few of his rivals do. And – he’s a doctor – not a lawyer. Much rather have a doctor as president.

I could go on – and I will at some date in the future – but for now I am announcing that Dean is my choice.

If however – for some reason he doesn’t win – my real candidate is ANYONE BUT BUSH! Someone asked me if I would vote for Satan for President. My response is – not in the primary.

Yeah, Kucinich is WAY too far left. Right. He supports things like clean air, clean water, livable wage, taxing the rich instead of the poor, universal health care, unions, no on the Iraq war, and now get out and turn over to the international community. Looks like mainstream to me.

>>And – who does that leave?

Um, Clark. I, personally, am feeling somewhat nostalgic right now for Arkansan Rhodes scholars.

Just cuz he’s not in the #1 spot at the moment doesn’t mean he’s out of it. In December 1991 Clinton was at 4%.

I like Dean, too, and I do think he’s electable. But Wes has the potential to not only win, but to win with a mandate and with coattails. That’s what it is going to take to knock the thugs clear off of the national stage.

Mark Perkel went over all of the Demo Candidates, except for Clark. I wonder why ? Wouldn’t you just pay to see a Clark / Smirk debate. With Clark, Bush couldn’t play the “military card” like he will with Dean.

My choice:

1. Clark
2. Dean
3. Sharpton
or ANY Democrat vs. Smirky

George is right. Kucinich would be the perfect leader for this country. The people in this country are too stupid to try to uinderstand what Dennis is about. They will continue voting for people who actually work against the working class.

Hi Marc,

Remember Doug Giles(at your last “defeated” perkel site) and his lifelong ambition of pointing out every slight bit of evidence that the Republican Party was imploding?

Well, it looks like it’s the Dems who will be imploding over the Clinton-Clark vs Gore-Dean wars.

Will be fun to watch.

I need to stock up on popcorn.
