A Renaissance Man for Kerry

George W. Bush is three things: steadfast, determined, and resilient. So when people say he’s a deer caught in headlights, they need to remember he’s a steadfast, determined, resilient deer caught in the headlights.

So says Mick Foley, three-time heavyweight champion and bestselling author, on Air America Radio’s Morning Sedition with Marc Maron and Mark Riley.
I am voting for John Kerry. But my job is not to tell people to vote for John Kerry. We’ve got some pretty staunch conservatives out in WWE who are going on record saying they’re voting for Bush. So our deal is to say, ‘Hey, I’ve looked at the issues and this is the choice that’s right for me’ and we’re trying to get voters to look at the choice that’s right for them.

I have a conversation in my mind where a father is putting his son to bed, and we have 40 million people living below the poverty line, 30 million other people that low-wage labor is failing them, and this kid being put to bed says, ‘Daddy, I’m hungry.’ And there’s no excuse for going to bed hungry in the land of plenty. And the father says, ‘Hey, that may be. But at least those two gay people you’ll never meet, in a city you’ll never be in, can’t get married.’ It just seems like our priorities are out of order.

Update: Yeah, I know, wrestling is fake... but its only "Seinfeld-fake" not "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth-fake".
