    Insufferable prig can’t wrap noble head around voter revolt 

    But he certainly finds the voters revolting. The Boston Herald on HRH John Kerry, who’s beginning to feel the ground beneath his feet trembling:

    Yes, the commonwealth’s senior senator engaged in what can only be described as a 40-minute whine-fest at a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce appearance yesterday, customizing congressional Democrats’ pre-election talking points for a local audience.

    He complained at length that his party isn’t getting the credit it deserves for rescuing the economy – indeed the very nation – ever since a “pale and agitated” Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came to Democrats begging for a Wall Street bailout in the fall of 2008. [. . .]

    “It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” Kerry said. “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.”

    It’s just too vulgar.

    Do these guys know how to energize the base, or what?

      Yes, you’re exactly right, it’s just too vulgar.

      Whta I find to be so amusing about Kerry’s comment is that the US probably has the most informed electorate in its recent history right now. Obama and Congress have forced people to go to the source and become informed– and that’s revealed the John Kerrys et al as what they are– hypocrites, elitists, and cheats. Which makes us all know-nothings and lowest common denominator.

        That is so true. I am surprised by people I run into and the comments they make about Congress and this administration. These are people I generally think of as low info voters too. I know life-long Dems who were truly appalled with the way health care was passed.

        Kerry and crew are really having one giant hissy fit and if it is this bad now imagine what it will be like November 3rd. All those Blue Dogs that sold their seats for Obama and Pelosi – they are going to be mad as hornets. I imagine quite a few skeletons will be let out of the closet after that; I can’t wait.

        To which he’d respond, you may think they are informed, but they’re not because they don’t understand the information they are getting or they are getting it from questionable sources like Fox and their X-boxes. Oh, wait, that’s BO’s riff about the danger of X-boxes passing on faulty information. My bad.

      He was just reelected in 2008 (and of course I did not vote for him), so he’s got a few more years to enjoy being an insufferable, condescending, tax cheating prig. I’m not forgetting what he’s said and done, and intend to work my butt off to get him voted out in 2014. Watch.

      Perhaps he should offer a seat on his yacht to Katie Couric, so they can compare notes on the ‘great unwashed.’

    Sen. John Kerry: Man Of The People 

    John Kerry’s hobbies, windsurfing and yachting, depend on which way the wind blows. 

    Kerry is renowned for his flip-flopping. In October 2003, a year after voting to support the use of force in Iraq, Kerry voted against an $87 billion supplemental funding bill for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. He did support an alternative bill that funded the $87 billion by cutting some of President Bush’s tax cuts. But when it was apparent the alternative bill would not pass, he decided to go on record as not supporting the legislation to fund soldiers.

    Kerry complicated matters with his now infamous words, “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”

    We learned today, from The Boston Herald, that the Democrat senator from Taxachusetts dodged a $437,500 state tax bill on his $7 million yacht by mooring it in Newport, RI.

    The tab for the state taxes on the yacht seems steep to you and me but I seriously doubt the Heinz-Kerrys would have a problem coming up with enough dead presidents to pay it, after all, Kerry once raised $500 million using two words—“I do.”

    Teresa Heinz is butt ugly but Kerry thinks “she looks like a million bucks.”  He’s not a ketchup whore for nothing.

    Democrats love to tax you and spend your money, but it’s an entirely different story when the money is theirs.  Taxes are for the little people, right?

    I love the assessment Instapundit made:  You have to be grateful for John Kerry who illustrates the problems with his class so well—he isn’t bright enough to hide it.

      That is absolutely hilarious Carol. Between this story and the Charlie Rangel ethics dilemma Democrats certainly are doing their part to insure a tidal wave in November.
