U.S.: Is Kerry ever right on anything?

1971: "Our democracy is a farce; it is not the best in the world." -- John F'fin Kerry, leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

1971: "We cannot fight communism all over the world and I think we should have learned that lesson by now." -- John F'fin Kerry, testimony before Congress.

1984: "We are continuing a defense buildup that is consuming our resources with weapons systems that we don't need and can't use." -- John F'fin Kerry,on the Reagan defense build-up.

2004: "The June 30 deadline is a fiction... You don't set an arbitrary date for the transfer of power to a nonentity" -- John F'fin Kerry, on the U.S. handover of sovereignty to Iraq.

What these few examples demonstrate is that Kerry cannot read global trends. Consequently, the foreign policy decisions he makes will most likely be disastrous.

Here's another one tossed in the mix and it suggests that Kerry's domestic policy decisions suffer from the same flaw.

2004: "We've got better vision, better ideas, real plans. We've got a better sense of what's happening to America — and we've got better hair." John F'fin Kerry, at a campaign stop with the Breck Girl.

Here's the rebuttal:

In a nationwide poll as to who has superior locks, Bush grabbed an overwhelming 51 percent of the vote, with Kerry coming in a distant second with just 30 percent.

"May the best candidate win, but when it comes to best presidential hair, George W. Bush has America's vote," said Pat Anello, marketing chief at grooming products giant Wahl Clipper Corp., which polled 512 men and 497 women in May, before Kerry added Edwards to his ticket.
