So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


First Lady material?

Sigh. I just can't picture Laura Bush doing this. She may think about it, but I have interviewed her on three different occasions. Her composure and dignity are unmatched. Here is a story from the Washington Post about Kerry's wife.

'Shove It,' Heinz Kerry Says to Journalist
Associated Press
Monday, July 26, 2004
Page A22 BOSTON, July 25 -- Teresa Heinz Kerry urged home-state delegates to the Democratic National Convention to restore a more civil tone to politics, then minutes later told a journalist to "shove it." "We need to turn back some of the creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits that are coming into some of our politics," the wife of Democratic candidate Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) told fellow Pennsylvanians on Sunday night at a Massachusetts Statehouse reception. Minutes later, Colin McNickle, editorial page editor of the conservative Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, questioned her on what she meant by the term "un-American," according to a tape of the encounter recorded by Pittsburgh station WTAE-TV. Heinz Kerry said, "I didn't say that" several times to McNickle. She turned to confer with Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and others. When she faced McNickle again a short time later, he continued to question her, and she replied, "You said something I didn't say. Now shove it."

    Oh Ant ... did you not see the part where she was recorded saying the comment, yet she kept denying she said it? She should have just said, I misspoke. I didn't mean to use that term. I should have said XYZ *or whatever* and she would have been done with it. Instead of arguing and denying she said something that was on tape ... just my two cents on that one. Glad you're reading and commenting, though.
