Today's not-so-hilarious news story is about John Kerry's election to, um...foreman of a jury.
But what is more telling is a quote by a fellow juror:
"I just found him to be a knowledgeable, normal person," said Cynthia Lovell, a nurse and registered Republican who says she now regrets voting for President Bush in last year's election. "He kept us focused. He wanted us all to have our own say."
Wouldn't it be smart to actually let a candidate show his/her true personality during an election, instead of clouding it behind carefully crafted political mumbo-jumbo? Believe it or not, I have a feeling Kerry actually does have a personality, and that it could come out positively if it wasn't being constantly "re-aligned" through constant photo-ops and canned speech.
As a final thought, who thinks that Bush could have been a positive leader in a jury? Who thinks Bush even knows what a jury is?
Bush has more leadership in his pinky finger than JK has in his entire body. I'm so sorry that our press and our fellow Americans aren't aware of that. Oh well, we'll likely get what we deserve in the next election, rather than what's good for us. I've been on a jury. It also takes integrity to serve well and JK seems to lack that too. Dan
