Durst: Colin Powell Blew It
Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email.
Colin Luther Powell just blew it. The guy was leading Clinton and Dole in a couple of Presidential Preference polls, for crums sake. So what does he do? Brainiac decides to take actual stands. Not normal political cream puff stands either, like coming out against cancer or questioning the family values of Jeffrey Dahmer or intimating that flesh eating bacteria is bad. No, this neophyte takes it upon himself to speak out on issues like affirmative action and abortion rights and gun control. And he's for them. Throw this guy a rabid team of advisors. You'd have a better chance of finding a virgin on Melrose Place than a Democrat that's this liberal. No wonder he won't declare as a Republican. He's obviously a Commie Pinko Yellow Rat Bastard. Gun control? A Republican in favor of gun control is like an alcoholic endorsing earlier bar times. Not the best way to win friends and influence people in your immediate peer group. It would be fun to see Phil Gramm admonish the four star general on his mistaken stance concerning affirmative action. And then the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff can turn to the Senior Senator from Texas and say, "They call me Mister Powell."
