"You can't win, Senator Kerry. If you strike Bush down, the Right-Wing Blogosphere will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
Simon's original just may be the most hilariously over-the-top thing I've ever read on a blog (and that would be something, since I read that "We've become women" thing that Kim Du Toit ejaculated a while back).
Of course, he has a point, although not the one I suspect he thinks he has. I fully expect that if Kerry wins, the level of right-wing hatred that will arise will make the treatment Bill Clinton received look like a little girl's treatment of her new pony.
