This guy was almost president
Say what you will about George W. Bush, he's unlikely to be photographed at a party with drunk college girls drinking beer through penis-shaped straws. Laura would never stand for that.
Rest of the pics at TMZ.

This is some alarming news indeed. I couldn't stop laughing. Girls falling over themselves drunk. Drinking with penis shaped straws and Kerry was right in the middle of it all.
I love it.
Ummm, this wasn't taken at a party. It's out in the street outside a restaurant where Kerry was eating.
Bet his aides didn't let him drive off with any of those cuties after the party.
Watch out, Mamma T's going to cram a can of soup where the sun don't shine.
Looks like his tan is fading..
I hope he didn't tell the ladies that he was a VietNam veteran and that he was a hero and was in Cambodia on a secret mission.
Why does he look like a cardboard cutout?
REPORTING FOR DUTY !!!!!!!
Is that George Eads from CSI behind Kerry?
"Why does he look like a cardboard cutout?"
What do you mean - he's always been that shallow.
"REPORTING FOR BOOTY !!!!!!!"
Obviously this cadre of penis drinking lassies have passed the "global test."
This is a resume enhancement!
Restaurant? Other than the group pic above, it looks like they're on a boat to me. Did you look at the rest of the pictures?
Damn. What might have been.
What is the deal with his eyebrows? Have they always had that "45 degree/sliding off his face" look?
Sadly Kerry is showing a lot more personality here than he did in the whole 2004 election.
And while I think Kerry was a bit over the top about his military service (not that McCain, the candidate I will vote for isn't, I mean how subtle is that Navy baseball hat?), do we really need to make our points by making puns on the reporting for duty line? I can't say I respect that much about John Kerry but I will say he was an Ivy League kid who actually had a choice and went to Vietnam. As the son of a Vietnam Vet, I have to say, even with his Vietnam Vets against the war crap, Kerry did a lot more than most of the best and the brightest elite snots at the colleges who burnt their draft cards and fled while blue collar guys across the nation did their duty.
Von Bek, he also did more service than a lot of the guys who have warred it up in Afghanistan and Iraq.
I don't know about that bryan. I will say he has done a hell of a lot more than a lot of people of the age of military service who want us to go into Iraq. And Iran. And Syria. And wherever else. You know, those people who will cheerfully pick up copies of the Weekly Standard and won't pick up a rifle. Not that I am any better, I'm not but I am also generally not one to attack the military records of candidates, even those I can't stand like Kerry.
Yes, inadvertantly shooting pieces of a rice paddy reed up your ass and winging an already half-dead Commie in pajamas really is valorous service. How dare someone who's spent multiple tours fending off self-immolating jihadis and dodging VBIEDs compare himself to Lurch.
"Yes, inadvertantly shooting pieces of a rice paddy reed up your ass and winging an already half-dead Commie in pajamas really is valorous service."
Is that your take on what the American serviceman did in Vietnam or, as I'm hoping, is that your take on Kerry's record?
Is that guy to the right of Hairy Kerry the Serbian basketball player wanted for beating up some student at SUNY Binghamtom and is now living in Serbia?
It's my take on Kerry's inflated, self-serving, vaguely Kennedyesque attempt to jumpstart his political career.
I've never heard of someone who spent so few months inside of a theater who accrued so many military honors in such a short period of time. He's also the only person I know of who actually lobbied-or enlisted others to lobby on his behalf-to be awarded specific medals and ribbons. 90 percent of the Swifties who served with him think he's a fraud, which is evidence enough for me.
Watch "The Matchmaker," it's the best summation of what a fraud Kerry is, notwithstanding the fact that it's a quasi-fictionalized comedy.
I will be sure to do so. My concern with a lot of the Kerry attacks back in 2004 was how, at first glance, they seemed to offer discredit to the entire military. That somehow awards were given out a dime a dozen in Vietnam. Soltinhtyzn has a section in "November 1916" when he deals with this and talks about how it utterly killed morale in the Tsar's army as awards were given without merit by a bloated and corrupt leadership and some of the first lines of attack on Kerry's record reminded me a bit too much of that. They were much less offensive, and a lot more effective, when these attacks focused on just Kerry and not the entire army in Vietnam.
Has anybody else noticed the striking resemblance between the senator and the straw?
Gerard, I've seen similarly scathing disrespect given to McCain's war service (I'm not even gonna quote them). I think the fact that they went is a good start.
Von Bek, sorry, I spoke badly. I was referring to W, Rummy and Cheney as people who never went to war, but were more than happy to send others. Lions led by donkeys, I'm reminded of (although IMO Clemenceau was probably one of the people who fucked up the 20th century and managed not to be villified too badly because of it).
Kerry held that red cup very well.
well at least hes a little different than clinton.... haha
bryan, yeah I'm usually not one to play the chicken hawk card but yeah there is something harrowing when a nation wishes to continually go to war and yet the elites of the nation will not fight it. I mean think about it. McCain's and Jim Webb's kids-uhm I think Biden has a son over there-these are the exceptions and not the rule anymore. I have no idea when it began-I mean all of TR's sons went to the Great War (and yes, I'm with you on Clemeanceau who was an SOB; I generally think the Great War, especially Wilson's leading America into it, caused all of the problems of the last century) and one of them was killed and a lot of them fought in WW2. FDR's sons all went in the service. Hell, LBJ had no kids but his son in law Chuck Robb went overseas. Now you can lose too many of the elites in a war-look again at WW1. I suspect the leadership of France and England were never the same. But the tradition is basically dead. Again, not that I am any better. And I'm not saying the Bush twins need to enlist. But it does reflect poorly on our culture.
