Kerry Suck Up Watch

Part 1--

"It isnÕt every day that the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party is a junior senator from Massachusetts who was educated at an ˇlite boarding school and an Ivy League college and whose political career was founded on his war heroism as a young Naval officer in command of a small boat and who has family money and a thick shock of hair and a slightly stiff manner and beautifully tailored suits and an aristocratic mien and whose initials are J.F.K. So rare is this phenomenon that the last time it happened was fortyfour years ago, way back in 1960."

Hendrik Hertzberg, writing (where else!) in the New Yorker.


Part Deux--

"I knew Kerry a little bit at Yale. We all looked up to him. He was head of the political union, and he was almost presidential material then. He looked like Abraham Lincoln."

Oliver Stone, as quoted in a Time Magazine interview.

Perhaps Joe Biden will do them one better?
