MILWAUKEE -- Call it the Tangle on the Tarmac.
For 20 minutes in a slow, steady rain yesterday, George W. Bush kept John F. Kerry cooling his heels at Milwaukee's airport as the presidential motorcade wended through the city toward Air Force One. Once Kerry learned of the delay, he leapt from his black SUV and hustled back up the stairs of his parked plane to look for his Red Sox cap to wear at a City Hall rally a short while later.
Waiting on Bush and remembering his Sox hat were just two new signs that, according to an increasingly superstitious corps of Kerry aides, portend an outright, recount-free victory for their man by early morning tomorrow.
They viewed Bush's departure from Wisconsin yesterday, at the same time as Kerry's arrival, as a good omen that the president would soon be decamping to his Texas ranch in the aftermath of a Democratic electoral win. The Red Sox, with a come-from-behind conquest of the Yankees and a reverse-the-curse sweep in the World Series, have emerged as the talisman of the Kerry campaign. The Massachusetts senator has even forced one of his speechwriters -- a diehard Yankees fan -- to wear a Red Sox cap full time for more than a week now in hopes of conjuring some special Boston magic. ...

Huh? How the %$##*% does anyone interpret those "signs" as good luck? Sounds like the author pulled that out of his a##.
Last night Kerry dreamed he was hunt'n with Schwarzkopf.
Kerry goes with superstition, Bush goes with God, we know who will win.
This is called wishful thinking. Fantasy time. Of course Kerry will declare himself a winner until the voter fraud issues are cleared up. It will become one of the more hilarious moments in election history.
I posted this earlier this a.m. Fox & Friends described how very very superstitious John Kerry is - he has a lucky hat, a lucky coat, lucky dog tags etc., and after losing one lucky talisman recently - was down on all fours looking for it. Anchorwoman Lauren Green was asked if she is superstitious and correctly stated "No, I have faith in God"
I understand that the Catholic faith deplores superstition. And remember also how Nancy Reagan was derided for consulting an astrologer. How soon they forget.
He's lucky it was Schwarzkopf rather than Bobby Knight.
Kerry has what I call the Lookit-Me Syndrome. When he was a little kid, he'd go to the swimming pool with the other kids, while Mom was sipping Gin & Tonics getting soused with her friends. I expect he would be standing on the diving board screamimg "Mom, MOM! Look at me. Lookat me Mom! Pleeeease lookit meeeee! Moooom Looookit meeeeeee!"
Well, now it's 50+ years later and he still can't get the attention he craves.
Scampering around to look for his lucky hat -- how very presidential.
What a tool . . .
It does, but no thinking human being older than 18 ought to still believe in lucky charms and fairy godmothers and superstitions.
precisely ....and isn't this a remarkable insight into Kerry's lack of character and immaturity
This is exactly why I did not want the Houston Astros to
win the NLCS. There are enough morons out there, that, given a Botox win over the Houston, Texas strohs, they would take this as an omen and vote for sKerry.
