  • Camera Please!

    Posted by Andy B on June 21st, 2004 (All posts by )

    From the campaign trail:

    Kerry invited Aspen resident and writer Hunter S. Thompson to ride in his motorcade and brought three copies of Thompson’s book about the 1972 presidential race, “Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail” for autographs.

    “Just to put your minds all at ease, I have four words for you that I know will relieve you greatly,” Kerry told the fund-raiser. “How does this sound — Vice President Hunter Thompson.”

    The only thing keeping this from becoming a Michael Dukakis-in-the-tank moment is the lack of a compelling visual to go with the quote.

      No way! Hunter for the commissioner of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives. VP? sheesh!

      Hell’s Angels is a brilliant book. I’d take Hunter as Veep for Kerry, just to liven things up.

    3. Andy B Says:

      Yea, I’ll take him too, especially if I can find out on the QT and lay about 10K on the Bush re-elected contract before the announcement.

      Which only goes to show that Kerry has a nice sense of humor and that seem in need of some ot it.

    5. Andy B Says:

      If he truly is NOT a stiff, all the better, but I think this was a little hippy-dippy-trippy flashback he had.

      If Hunter ran America … you’d have a chance. As it is … the “Decline and Fall” is being watched worldwide.

      Do What Now ???
