I think this is a different level of security than for the primary contests.

They’ll need extra men to protect his giant Mardi Gras papier mache head from assassins.

On the downside, all those extra witnesses will make it harder for him to continue to cheat on his meal-ticket of a wife.

Question 1: Can you protect me from Hillary?
Question 2: How do I know you're not working for Hillary?

Secret Service directed their requests to Al Qaeda. Since Osama Bin Laden is one of Kerry's BIGGEST supporters.

His looks should be enough to scare anyone away. He would easily become a ranking member of the top 3 ugliest presidents ever...if elected.

I've searched the linked page twice and see no mention of security for Kerry.



Trolling?

I did a search in the Boston Globe for today. No article exists with that mention in it. Apparently if it was there it was taken out very quickly.

Proves that you're a troll. A freeper would have made the article obvious.

Nice try, though. Thanks for playing.

There was NO visible security when we went to one of his campaign stops. There was a cordoned off area for the press and folks with IDs. We walked right through them. Granted, we didn't look threatening. (we had five young children with us.) However, we weren't the only ones who moved freely during this "No more Bush" rally. Hubby remarked that tight security gives folks a feeling that they are around someone important. It makes a Kerry-type seem more presidential. As much as I enjoy Kerry's less than presidential appearance, I think it is wise that he have tighter security. If he and his handlers are so uncaring today about his security, how would they be with our national security???????

The only thing that threatens John Kerry, is John Kerry's past. His Benidict Arnold days after his 4 months in Vietnam will hurt him

I have not seen any proof of this assertion. I know that there are retired Generals who do not recall seeing John Kerry in Vietnam. In addition, although I have access to over a dozen documents related to US military deployments during the time period 1950 - 1990, I have to say that John Kerry's name does not appear on any of them. This certainly raises qustions about his credibility.

True. Any man who can run down a wounded guy and finish him off - well, let's just say the SS will only slow him down.

(Disclaimer: No disrespect to Vietnam vets intended - I just never was a fan of the self-appointed "hero".)

The link only leads to a registration page, as you well know. You are allowed to excerpt part of the article, which you chose NOT to do. And yet you expect us to see the article.

Makes one wonder how he convinced two very wealthy women to marry him.

What was in it for them?

I think the Secret Service likes to plan these things ahead of time.

There have already been discussions of Monsieur Kerry taking two overseas diplomatic trips this summer..

As important as it is to catch the trolls .. we also need to remind ourselves, not to scare off any new good freepers

My thinking is .. if they are a troll .. give them enough rope and they'll hang themselves

Lurch wants CIA protection? Why doesn't he just buy a Glock and get a CCW permit? It'd save the taxpayers a lot of money..... oh well, it was just a thought.
