Teresa Heinz Kerry's Charm Offensive

Or is that her offensive charm?


Speaking to the Pennsylvanian delegation at the statehouse in Boston, Heinz Kerry delivered an impassioned plea against hate politics:

"We need to turn back some of the creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits that are coming into some of our politics."

"My prayers for you, for me, for the country, for the world, are that we keep this at a high level, with dignity, with respect and with a great idealism and courage that took our forefathers to build this great nation."

According to multiple sources who attended the event, Heinz Kerry upon finishing the speech pushed her way through the Secret Service to get to Pittsburgh Tribune Review reporter, Colin McNickle. Upon getting to Mcnickle, Heinz Kerry asks, 'Are you from the Tribune Review' Mcnickle says, 'Yes, I am.'

At this point and in an irritated fashion Heinz Kerry says, 'Of course, understandable. You said something I didnt say. Now Shove it!'

Tape of the incident is being edited to air on Pittsburgh's WTAE-TV, and, according to a media source, ABC NEWS is set to run with it thereafter.

A witness of the incident said reporters were "stunned" by Heinz Kerry's outburst, especially in light of the speech she had just given.

And for those of you who don't trust Drudge because you're too left-wing to believe anyone to the right of Peter Jennings, ABC's The Note has a transcript, and notes (sorry) that Hillary Clinton defended THK on CNN this morning.

John Kerry has said his wife is off-limits to commentary by the press. Thus, it's easy for her to throw stones from behind his protection: saying Dick Cheney isn't a patriot, calling Bush's environmental policies (most of which are really Clinton Lite) a "sin", etc. See here for more.

Of course, what's really warped is that Kerry's two most prominent attack dogs are his "protected" wife and triple-amputee Max Cleland. Neither is in touch with reality, neither will be questioned by the sympathetic media.
