  • The Frozen Tundra of Lambert Field

       August 27, 2004

    I can't believe I didn't hear about this story earlier. On Wednesday, John Kerry was in Green Bay wooing Badger voters. Like most politicians, he varies his stump speech with some local content. This time, he went for the Packer vote by refering to "Lambert Field". I'm stunned. Kerry must be one of the only men in America who hasn't heard of the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field? Can he really be that culturally illiterate? As our regulars know, we proudly hail from Wisconsin. Lambeau Field is one of our holy shrines. People sneak inside to spread the ashes of loved ones in the south endzone. Couples regularly stop to take wedding pictures outside the stadium. Going to a game there is like a pilgrimage to Mecca. I'm not kidding. If you're going to speak in Green Bay this is one thing you don't mess up.

    I don't expect any Wisconsinites to vote for Bush just because Kerry doesn't know his Lambeaus from his Lamberts or Lombardis. But that's not really the point.

    Much like George H.W. Bush's run in with the cash register branded him as out of touch, this incident again exposes Kerry as a phony. He's not a war hero. He's not an accomplished Senator. He's not even a man of the people. He's a hoity-toity East Coast liberal elitist. That's fine, I just deeply resent him trying to pretend to be something else so people will vote for him.

    What was it that the Governator said a few weeks ago... "girlie men"? Looks like it applies here, too, especially when you see his throwing style.

    Dude, I LOVED Christopher Lambeau in "Highlander" and "Greystoke" but had no idea he was from Wisconsin.
