They will have to be positive.....it'll never happen....

Donald Sensing has issued a challenge! Explain why you are FOR Kerry.....without having your argument slip-slide into "why I am against Bush."

Hence my challenge: If you support Kerry for president, I invite you to write a guest post for this blog explaining why. Here's why it's a challenge:

  • To be published, you must explain why Kerry is to be preferred in terms that do not simply say he's not Bush. This is not an invitation to rage about Bush; it is an invitation to be positive about Kerry.

  • It will be insufficient merely to declare that Bush is wrong on Iraq, taxes, education, etc. You must explain why and how Kerry is right.

  • You must cite and provide links to Kerry's speeches or campaign releases to back up your claims. These cites can reach all the way back to when Kerry declared his candidacy for the 2004 race.

  • Citing the Dermocratic platform will be unpersuasive, since neither party pays a lot of attention to its own platform once the election is over, even if they win.

  • Length limit is 1,500 words. That's a long post, by the way.
    [...]
  • ABSOLUTE DEADLINE is Saturday, Aug. 28 at 7 a.m. CDT.


  • My guess is that his challenge will not be met in any persuasive way. But we shall see.
