Lester Holt-NBC
Just said that Kerry is Boston born and bred-didn't I just find out yesterday that Kerry was born in Colorado. It's a small thing but when they don't get an easily checked fact right I become suspicious of whatever they had to say.

1. You are right
Kerry even visited the military hospital where he was born this last week. I've come to the conclusion that journalists have become incredibly lazy in ascertaining facts.

5. I posted yesterday
That as a Catholic, Irish Jew Kerry can't ever aspire to being a blue blooded Yankee elite. Now Georgie has no problem with being defined as such.

8. Funny,
there are two kinds of New England elitists. There is one who uses his connections to slide by in good schools, evade military service in Viet Nam, and be irresponsible in his business dealings. There is another who takes his responsibilities to his fellow beings seriously, volunteers for Viet Nam, saves a fellow soldier's life, and then follows his principles by opposing the war. He becomes a crusading attorney and then public servant. That's the kind of "New England elitist" that I like.

6. That makes Kerry more of a cowboy that Bush...
Who is a blueblood from Connecticut who went to an elite prep school where he was a freakin' cheerleader, and capped it off with legacy enrollments at eastern elitist universities, Yale and Harvard.

9. Kerry's From Boston Like Bunnypant's Is From Texas...
Uh let's see...one candidate is born to a military family based in Colorado during WWII. The other is born to a Brahmin Connecticut Yankee family in New Haven. Uh you tell me whose the "silver spoon" here?

C-Span ran a bit of a Howie Carr hit job today about how Kerry lives like some spoiled frat boy...never a word that the pResident is sitting on a fake "ranch", playing gameboy and has never worked a real job in his life. Or that Kerry has been avoiding Boston. Howie...moron, that's how conventions work...the nominee doesn't show until the end of the party. Ya think Bunnypants is gonna spend anymore time in NYC than absolutely necessary? Talk about tight security...Manhattan will be tighter than a drum when that dude copters in and out for his attempt at a speech.

Lester's a card-reader...a good guy from his days in Chicago. He's a company man doing a company thing.
