Yeah, what he said

Greg Palast pretty much sums it up for me, too.

He first notes how in his acceptance speech, John Kerry waxed poetic about the difficulties of the unemployed and the poor despite having voted for NAFTA, the "No Child's Behind Left" act, a requirement for a balanced budget, and Clinton's welfare "reform." Kerry also criticized the war despite having voted for it. Palast then writes:
I know what you're going to say. "Isn't Bush worse?"

By a long shot. But asking if Kerry is as bad as Bush is like asking if a slap in the face is as painful as a brick to the skull.

But don't you get tired of being slapped around by privileged politicos on hypocrisy hyper-drive - then having to applaud? It can't be pleasant, no matter how many pretty balloons they drop on your head.
Eyes wide open, folks. A Kerry win does not mean happy days are here again.
