The Bitch Is Back

Theresa Heinz Kerry crawled out from under her multi-million dollar rock this weekend and took her private jet out to Seattle to help raise money for Rep. Adam Smith. Here is a sampling of her comments, with a few observations of my own thrown in.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH: A practicing Catholic, as is her husband, Heinz Kerry remains outraged at attacks by bishops on her husband's pro-choice views.
"You cannot have bishops in the pulpit -- long before or the Sunday before the election -- as they did in Catholic churches, saying it was a mortal sin to vote for John Kerry," she said.

Heinz Kerry gave no examples. Last year, a few ultraconservative prelates said they would not allow the Democratic nominee to receive communion in their dioceses. The bishop of Colorado Springs declared that Catholics voting for pro-choice candidates were not welcome at the communion rail.

"The church has a right and obligation to teach values," Heinz Kerry declared. "They don't have a right to restrict freedom of expression, which they did."

Actually, the bishops restricted no one’s freedom of expression. They refused to allow Church property to be used by your abortion-promoting husband’s campaign, and they exercised their teaching authority to impose a legitimate Church sanction against your husband. But your husband was nowhere prevented from speaking or getting his message out.

COUNTING THE VOTES: Heinz Kerry is openly skeptical about results from November's election, particularly in sections of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes.

"Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz Kerry said. She identified both as "hard-right" Republicans. She argued that it is "very easy to hack into the mother machines."

"We in the United States are not a banana republic," added Heinz Kerry. She argued that Democrats should insist on "accountability and transparency" in how votes are tabulated.

"I fear for '06," she said. "I don't trust it the way it is right now."

The reality is that your husband did about as well as the polls showed he would do in the closing days of the campaign. More votes were cast and counted than any election in US history. And despite all your concerns about high-tech voter fraud, you failed to notice the low-tech voter fraud committed by Democrats in the very state in which you were speaking, which put a fraud-tainted Democrat into the Governor’s mansion. There is also the question of LACK OF EVIDENCE to support your innuendo.

A SECOND KERRY RUN: Heinz Kerry won't stand in the way of a second presidential bid by her husband. She tersely summed up emotions at the end of November's long election night: "No tears, some sadness."

"I think we should focus on '06: If '06 doesn't work out, '08 will be impossible," she argued. "If it were right for John to do it -- and he felt right -- he would do it again (in 2008). If he didn't feel it right, he wouldn't."

Oh please, oh please, oh pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaazzzzzzeeeeeee! Urge him to run. We Republicans won’t even need to do any opposition research. By the way, when will he be signing that DD-180?

Well, there you have it – the woman is every bit as loony as she seemed on the campaign trail..
