I'm writing this diary only partially in response to today's top diary BREAKING: Kerry regular, down to earth guy who raised one of my pet peeves:

The "regular guy" myth
I think that the GOP constructed the myth that politicians need to be "regular, down to earth guys" and we bought it hook, line and sinker. Presidents need to be prepared, competent, knowleadgeable, balanced... I couldn't care less if the guy is someone I'd invite for a barbecue. I have enough friends, thank you, I don't need one on the WH. What I need on the WH is a decently competent, principled President

The "regular" neurosurgeon



* Do you care if the specialist who is going to operate your child is liked by his neighbors ?
* Do you b*tch when your basketball team hires a troublemaker who plays like a pro ?
* Do you chose an investment banker by the way he amuses you at happy hour ?
* Do you decide on a contractor based on his ability to entertain Aunt Alda at a barbecue ?
* Have you boycotted all recent Tom Cruise movies just because he was mean to Brooke Shields ?

Competence not Charm
Never again I want to have a President:

* incapapble of reading all 90 pages of a report on the eve of going to war based on said report.
* incapable of controlling his and his staff public tantrums: Teachers are not terrorists, War on Terror is not a Crusade, Veterans aren't cowards, VP's do NOT advocate nuking of countries, Press Secretaries do NOT use government property (WH website) for slander
* Insults other coutries, our allies of 40-50 years, for political gain
* Who allows his aides to out agents, to commit perjury and to obstruct a federal investigation
* Lets his libido loose while there's a witchunt aimed a him

F*ck likable!!!! Give me honest, SANE and liberal!
I want a President that does not syphon money from war reconstruction projects, who keeps his word and fires dishonest aides, who doesn't propose bombing a TV Station on an allied country and who will NEVER condone torture, bigotry and democide
