  • John Kerry: Political Maverick?

       September 29, 2004

    After his infamous "Lambert Field" gaffe, John Kerry is desperate to connect with Wisconsin voters. His latest attempt is to frame himself as a political maverick, in the mold of "Fighting Bob" LaFollette, Lee Dreyfus and Russ Feingold.

    Kerry communications director Stephanie Cutter says, "You can't really put a label on John Kerry. He's been an independent thinker and a fighter all his life."

    Oh Stephanie, thank you so much for bringing a little laughter into my day. Yes indeedy, John Kerry is such an independent thinker that he's voted with Ted Kennedy a mere 93% of the time in the Senate in 2003. Now, I know that you contrarians out there will say "that's not a good measure because Kerry didn't show up to vote very often in 2003". Okay then, on key votes over the course of his Senate career, Kerry votes with Kennedy 94% of the time.

    I know that hoity-toity Yale-educated east-coasters think that Wisconsinites are not their intellectual equals, but even we know that a man who votes with liberal leader Ted Kennedy 94% of the time is not an "independent thinker".

    What will they try next? John Kerry as football star? John Kerry as war hero? John Kerry as activist? Oh wait...

    I already made the "four touchdowns in a single game" joke.
