Beneath Contempt

August 31, 2004
The Mike Mallloy Show

Kerry passed the word at the Democratic Convention that there were to be no personal attacks on George W. Bush. And the Democrats responded by keeping the focus on Bush's miserable record as an unelected president. Contrast that attitude with the attacks last night against John Kerry by adulterer and home-wrecker Rudolph Giuliani. And now, this: Convention-goers were handed bandages with purple hearts on them Monday night by a GOP delegate in a swipe at Democratic nominee John Kerry. The bandages were handed out by Morton Blackwell, a longtime GOP activist from Virginia, with the message: "It was just a self-inflicted scratch, but you see I got a Purple Heart for it." These people - Republicans - are beneath contempt. How much longer will normal Americans put up with this Republican destruction of our institutions, our military, our social contract, our self-respect and our standing in the world?
