Kerry Too Busy For National Security
Apparently the man who would be president is too busy to get a briefing on terrorism and national security but not too busy to party down with the Bush-hating Hollywood Left.
When questioned yesterday by CNN's Larry King about Secretary Ridge's warning of possible attacks by Al Qaeda John Kerry's response was less than reassuring. "Well, I haven't been briefed yet, Larry. They have offered to brief me. I just haven't had time." Hasn't had time? The man who wants to lead and protect this nation is too busy to be briefed on the latest threats?
Kerry appeared on King's show just hours before he attended a hate fest disguised as a fundraiser. A bash put on by "Fahrenheit 9/11" financier Harvey Weinstein featured Whoopi Goldberg, John Mellencamp, Jon Bon Jovi, Chevy Chase, Meryl Streep, Jessica Lange, and a host of other "stars". Kerry closed the event by leading a sing-along of "This Land Is Your Land" and said that "every performer tonight ... conveyed to you the heart and soul of our country." John Edwards said, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values."
Well let's see about that. What do Kerry, the Democrats and the Left think "the heart and soul of our country" are? What are "real American values"? While waving a bottle of wine Goldberg treated the audience to a stream of sexual innuendoes and anatomical double entendre's such as "keep Bush where it belongs and not in the White House." She boasted that when asked for a transcript of her intended routine ""I Xeroxed my behind and I folded it up in an envelope and I sent it back with a big kiss mark. ... Why are you asking me to come if you don't want me to be me?" Mellencamp called Bush "just another cheap thug" and the "Texas bambino." Chevy Chase, said Bush is "as bright as an egg-timer" and that Edwards will make Vice President Dick Cheney look "as bright as a bundt cake" in debates. Jessica Lange called Bush "our so-called president" whose administration is "a self-serving regime of deceit, hypocrisy and belligerence." Kerry was seen laughing heartily during Goldberg's screed and called it "an extraordinary evening." Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there. Neither Kerry nor Edwards voiced any objection to any of the performers' statements.
Party on, Dude!
Why Kerry is "too busy" for a National Security briefing.
So is that what we consider "the heart and soul of America" and "real American values"? Do we really want the vulgar Hollywood elite wielding their influence in Washington again? And by the way, when will Kerry find the time to learn what needs to be done to protect this country?

This just in from the Drudge Report:
"Kerry's aides said that he was returning to Boston on Sunday a day ahead of schedule to receive a national security briefing."
I feel better already!
