Will The Real John Kerry Please Stand Up!
Geeez ... this blog is quickly turning into a two pony show ... Boobenfreude and reasons why you shouldn't vote for John Kerry. Well, at least Boobenfreude seems to be settling down. John Kerry on the other hand. . . . the reasons not to vote for him keep piling up.
Howie Carr has a great piece on the Real John Kerry in today's New York Post. Cutting in line, skipping on bills, bullying his constiutuents, hooking up with one heiress after another, and getting free cars from shady dealers, all qualities we thought would never show their face after the Clinton's left town.
This exchange is typical
Many of his constituents see him in person only when he is cutting them in line - at an airport, a clam shack or the Registry of Motor Vehicles. One talk-show caller a few weeks back recalled standing behind a police barricade in 2002 as the Rolling Stones played the Orpheum Theater, a short limousine ride from Kerry's Louisburg Square mansion.
The caller, Jay, said he began heckling Kerry and his wife as they attempted to enter the theater. Finally, he said, the senator turned to him and asked him the eternal question.
"Do you know who I am?"
"Yeah," said Jay. "You're a gold-digger."
John Kerry. First he looks at the purse.
