I am quite certain I never saw (let alone wore) that shirt.

About that tank pic:
It wasn't until the Republicans started yapping about it that we knew it was somehow a bad move.

To this day I have never seen what was supposedly so awful about that pic.

Mind explaining? :p

Are you serious?

The juxtaposition of that little scrawny dork in a steel behemoth is the stuff of legends. And that helmet .... oh my word.
But you seriously claim that you and your compadres saw nothing ... odd ... about that picture? Really?

:roll:

Sorry, I'm not buying it.

Question, the usage of tanked: "in or into a decline or slump"... did that come from the Dukakis incident, or is that just happy serendipity?

Coinkydink.

What about his take no prisoners position regarding his wife?
Massachusetts Governor Mike Dukakis didn't exactly charm his way into voters' hearts during the 1988 debates with his response about whether he would support the death penalty should his wife, Kitty, be raped and murdered. A longtime opponent of the death penalty, Dukakis responded to the startling question from CNN's Bernard Shaw, "No, I don't, Bernard, and I think you know that I've opposed the death penalty during all of my life. I don't see any evidence that it's a deterrent and I think there are better and more effective ways to deal with violent crime."
Tone deaf, no other word for it.

It's probably the death penalty issue that nailed him, not the tank pic.

That and guilt by non-association with Reagan.

What is remarkable in retrospect is how similar his other positions were to those of Bush the First (who ran as Reagan the second).

The fact is California protected this nutcase from deportation several times when they had him in custody and didn't inform ICE.
Link? I don't doubt you, just want to see the factual basis.

This article says something different:

I guess I was confusing him with Kate Steinle's killer. It really doesn't matter, Democrat policy is to never turn over criminals in their custody to ICE, do you dispute that?
Do you have questions about God?

So your take is that Mike Dukakis was not sexy enough to be president. :cowbell:
