To listen to the Kerry campaign, American's efforts in Iraq have failed and it's time to get out. At least that is one of Kerry's positions; it is hard to keep up. I wonder how this philosophy would go over for a high school football season. After their first loss each year a school could with draw from the schedule, hang its head and hand in the uniforms. Better still, the whole competitive program of highs schools, colleges, and even professional teams could be settled with very few games. After the first touch down is scored, the "losers" can hang it up and walk off the field. The next week the remaining half of the teams could play till the first score and then end the games. Only winners advance and the team that produces half a dozen first touch downs in the games will be state, conference, or national champion. Fans and players would save themselves a lot of suffering.
Wars are hard and terrible things, but those who give up when the going gets tough are losers. No wonder Kerry finds such an affinity for the French. I now suggest that Kerry check out the polls - admit his campaign is a failure, withdraw from the race, and save everybody a lot of suffering.
