Far Too Stupid To Be Taken Seriously

Is this related to no controlling legal authority?

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry is considering delaying accepting his party's nomination to gain time to raise and spend private contributions and lessen President Bush's multimillion-dollar financial advantage, campaign officials said Friday.

The proposal would let Kerry hold off on spending his $75 million general-election budget for an extra month. The Democratic Party would still stage its national convention in Boston at the end of July, five weeks before the Republican National Convention in New York.

I can't wait to see President Bush's commercials after the Democratic Convention, "Well, I thought I would have had an opponent by now, but perhaps he's having second thoughts." Or, "I understand the Democrats still haven't found anybody willing to accept the challenge to run against me." Or maybe, "I've heard of buyer's remorse, but this is the first time I've ever heard of seller's remorse." Or even, "Late, grossly (criminally?) over budget and an unbelievable waste of taxpayer money in Boston -- and no, I'm not talking about the Big Dig."

Isn't John-boy opening the door for someone else to take the nomination if he doesn't?

I heard this on the top of the hour news break on the way home. I also heard probably one of the better comeback lines that evidently came from the Bush campaign.

"Only John Kerry could be for a nominating convention and against a nomination at the same time."

"I declined the nomination before I accepted the nomination."
