Please, no more, I can't take it

I'm begging you, STOP making it so easy. When you persist in blathering visibly false rubbish as though you had a point, and people keep buying it, it grinds my faith in my species to paste. STOP IT. You know who you are.

JOHN Kerry's campaign has warned Australians that the Howard Government's support for the US in Iraq has made them a bigger target for international terrorists.

Diana Kerry, younger sister of the Democrat presidential candidate, told The Weekend Australian that the Bali bombing and the recent attack on the Australian embassy in Jakarta clearly showed the danger to Australians had increased.

"Australia has kept faith with the US and we are endangering the Australians now by this wanton disregard for international law and multilateral channels," she said, referring to the invasion of Iraq.

I see two possibilities here, Ms. Kerry - I wanted to list them in order of likelyhood, but couldn't rank them. You might be so uninformed on the issues you attempt to address as to buttress my belief that the electorate should be licensed to vote. I don't know what other mechanism might protect us all from the likes of you. Alternatively, you just don't care. You'll say anything if you think it might work.

1) You made these remarks
2) The Bali bombing took place in October 2002
3) Iraq was invaded in March 2003

I don't know what other conclusions could lend themselves to these facts. Any suggestions?

For that matter, are there any takers for bets on how the Kerry campaign might respond? I'm putting the farm in favor of "Ms. Kerry's reasoning was fake, but accurate."

Update: Tom at Redhunter points out a glaring flaw in the overall message, and Captain Ed questions the wisdom of undermining our alliances in the war on terror. Both good points. And no, Captain - she doesn't credit Australians with having memories any better than those she credits Americans Democrats with.
