Did he or was it just a staged photo? There was a photo of a guide carrying a goose that Kerry was credited for shooting but no actual photos of him making the shots. Kerry wanted to distance himself and would not even be photographed holding the birds.

Real hunters are proud of their harvest.

Who shows pride as a hunter, John Kerry

She has accomplished exactly what she wants thanks to the likes of you.
Hmm. Nasty.

But no, she has accomplished most of what she wants thanks to her fans. I'm not one of them.

And so your solution to your dislike for her and for hunting in general is to spread baseless lies and refuse to back up the premise in your original thread post?

She doesn't care about appealing to mainstream America; she cares about appealing primarily to rustic rubes who eat up her kitschy "patriot" blab. At any rate...I don't care what she hunts and kills. Doesn't affect my opinion of her.

As long as you keep her name on your lips and fingertips, you're doing her bidding. The more her detracters froth about her, the more her fans talk about her and rally around her in response.

Maybe -- if his detractors don't still outnumber his supporters by 2 to 1 when 2012 rolls around. Being a gadfly is a lot easier than winning elections.
