Mitch Berg finds yet another example of John Kerry being a major-league asshole. I’m willing to cut politicians a bit of slack, as we all say things we later regret, but Kerry has a history of this kind of mean-spirited arrogance. That kind of statement is completely inappropriate and totally disrespectful. This country needs a leader, not someone who sounds like your typical DU troll.
Of course, this is going to come home to roost for Kerry sooner or later. The debates this fall will be very interesting. With Kerry’s polling on likability and trustworthiness already in the toilet, I have a feeling the debates will be a key point in the race. Just look at what happened to Gore’s numbers after the debates. Kerry’s natural patrician arrogance will not serve him well in making his case to the American people.
