Best One Liner to Come Out of Either Convention: "Ask Bin Laden if he is better off today than he was four years ago"

What a difference eight years can make.  It was only eight years ago that then presidential candidate John Kerry was missing in action, wind surfing while Boston burned , so to speak, .as some rich, billionaire friends of the Bushies were spreading lies about Kerry's military service.  Say what you will about Mr. Kerry's politics, but the fact remains he was a true war hero and the Swift Boaters were literally full of shit.

That does not let Mr. Kerry off the hook in my book for his conduct upon returning from the war or for ignoring the Swift Boaters outrageous lies.  In politics these days, nothing is beneath the dignity of responding to.  Kerry so botched his parties chances back in 2004, a Republican analyst later said of Candidate Kerry:  "He was so stiff he made the trees in the Wizard of  Oz look animated and loose" (I paraphrase).

Now, just eight short years later, it is the Democrats and their candidate, President Obama, who have the advantage on national security issues over their opponents. Let's face it, compared to Mitt Romney, John Kerry is a man with gravitas and his one liner at last month's DNC:   "Ask Bin Laden if he is better off today than he was four years ago" was hands down the best one liner to come out of either parties convention.

Finally, the best parody video to come out of the conventions was again a no brainer, going to the Leonard Nimoy narrated spoof entitled "Mitt Romney, a Human Being Who Built That".  See it at:
