'64 copy of LIFE key to Kerry's '60s mindset

The pages of LIFE chronicled the fact that ``The Munsters'' was the TV hit of the year...

Hey, the Addams Family was no slouch in molding "Lurch" either...

Great opinion piece.

Thanks for posting it.

It just reinforces the impression I already had of Senator Kerry.

Namely, that he is a 60s retread, unable or unwilling to come up with innovative solutions to tackle the pressing issues of the day head-on.

KERRY SUCKS!

-good times, G.J.P. (Jr.)

"from a threat that was real and imminent"

The problem is, Kerry's idea of real and imminent is an army landing on our shores. As they sail across the ocean he'd be at the UN begging for them to join us in a coalition.
