Finally, the Campaign Gets to the Important Issues

 

John Kerry?s campaign pulled into Las Vegas, Nevada this evening to the music of Sheryl Crow performing her hit, “A Change Would Do You Good,” and addressed a very enthusiastic audience of 6,000 to 11,000.  He showed his understanding of the issues by asking the question many politicians have shied from:

 

Kerry asked Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who was the best magician in Las Vegas: Lance Burton or David Copperfield, but said Bush topped the list.

 

“He made our allies disappear, he cut jobs, sawed them right in half, and made a huge deficit appear out of nowhere,” Kerry said.

 

Bush spokespeople said Kerry was out of the mainstream and did not represent the concerns of the Nevada people.  A socialist held a sign proclaiming there was no difference between the two candidates.  

 

Let?s recap then: Sheryl Crow sings a song about a change bag, Senator Kerry asked about the relative abilities of the local favorite magicians and then discussed methods of vanishing, appearing and thin model sawing in half.  This was followed by a claim by President Bush?s campaign that the Senator was deceptive and guilty of substitution.  Finally a Socialist claimed both candidates were actually two sides of the same item.  

 

Buckley said there are eleven principles of deception in our art.  By our count, this one rally hit on nine to ten of the principles.  The only one left?  Escape.  Hmmm.  Stay tuned.
