Man, if you thought the puppies were a big disaster for the Bush campaign, wait 'till you see the BIG STORY the conservative bloggers are pinning their hopes on. Their big October Surprise.
Drudge is supposedly going to break this in an hour, based on a front-page story of the Washington (Mooney) Times by Joel Mowbray. I happen to know what that story is about--
About a year ago, Kerry said in a speech that he had met with all the members of the Security Council prior to voting to authorize Bush's Iraq War.
So I sat with the French and British, Germans, with the entire Security Council, and we spent a couple of hours talking about what they saw as the path to a united front in order to be able to deal with Saddam Hussein.
The Mooney Times piece is going to state that several of the ambassadors on the Security Council allege that Kerry did not, in fact, meet with them.
So at this point, you are saying, "Big fucking deal. So what's the big story?"
But there's nothing else to it. That's the Big Story. The one that will knock the wheels off Kerry's campaign. The one that has the Wingnut blogs wetting themselves. The one that will rescue the Bush campaign from the ineptness of the Bush Administration.
But there is a punchline -- The story is wrong. Kerry did meet with everyone.
But that's almost beside the point. If this is what they're pinning their hopes on, they're in worse shape than anyone expected.
Update: I know I haven't sourced the assertion that Kerry met with everyone. When we see the story, with the names of the ambassadors who claim not to have met with Kerry, then it'll be easy enough to refute the allegations.
Update II: So the big scoop is that Kerry didn't meet with the UN ambassadors of Colombia, Mexico, and Bulgaria. Stop the freakin' presses! LOL.
Real news will make this nothing more than a funny humiliation for the online wingnut community. They were really expecting a race-altering deal. So let's all have a hearty laugh at their expense.
