Posted on 12/27/2004 8:44:18 AM PST by beyond the sea
Teresa Heinz may have failed in her bid to become first lady, but she's not giving up on buying her way into political power.
"The word in Pennsylvania is that Kerry and other family members are pressing her son Chris Heinz to run for a House of Representatives seat," says the Washingtonian Magazine. "Chris Heinz is attractive and photogenic, and campaign funding wont be a problem," the mag notes.
The tart tongued billionairess who calls opponents "scumbags" also believes that leading conservative Sen. Rick Santorum is beatable in 2006.
Mrs. Heinz is expected to pour some of her ketchup cash into the coffers of any challenger who stands a chance against Santorum.
Good to see Teraaaayza has her priorities straight.
And if the voters don't like him they can 'Shove It'.
Photogenic? LOL. They continue to push Chris Heinz as a stud. He's a dolt like his mother with her mouth. He went around college campuses saying how Bush was going to bring back the draft and called Bush a 'cokehead', idiot, the usual lines from the losers. There's nothing there.
Yeah, just what America needs: more style without substance.
We do not forget, do we. He is as worthless as his step-father, J. F'n Kerry.
So the gin-soaked (raisin) lady couldn't buy her gigolo-husband the Presidency, so she's going to settle for buying her son a House seat. Money + good looks + being photogenic = worthiness to hold a House seat? I don't think so.
They seem to have a lot of that in that family.
I'd like to start spending their income on social programs for the less fortunate.
I thought John Edwards was her son...
Before you are one of two people to represent the people of Pennsylvania in the most exclusive club in Washington, the Senate.
Try to win a lowly congressional district first to see if you are more than just a mama's boy
Are these the qualifications for a DEM candidate?? Nothing about any ideas?
I'm sure she has figured out that buying her son a House seat will cost a whole lot less than she spent trying to buy her husband the presidency.
You would think so the way she carried on about his hair, etc.
Maybe they were doing a little action behind the back of her husband??? You never know with these guys.
Alas, this is the state of our representative republic nowadays. Are we a nation so devoid of qualified citizens that this 'statement' stands unchallenged by the MSM? Oppps, I forgot, the MSM is the reason these are qualifying characteristics to be a representative.
I believe his father, Mr. Heinz, was a Republican. Unlike these scumbags.
There is something Oedipal in all this...
Certainly emasculates Kerry even more.
I just hope Mom is able to make as many campaign appearances as possible. With plenty of media to record her pearls of wisdom. She was lots of fun in 2004.
Yes he did say those things about G.W.
I knew John Heinz before and when Teraaaaaaaaayza was married to him. He was a real good man. I cannot believe this son is John Heinz' son, the kid should have better sense...... and better manners!
all those things are now going in the opposition research database.
Poor father! We pray for him.
"The word in Pennsylvania is that Kerry and other family members are pressing her son Chris Heinz to run for a House of Representatives seat," says the Washingtonian Magazine
Reporter Unknown stated that when little Chris was told by Mamma Heinz that he will go to Congress, he replied ... "Aw, do I have too?
Yeh, but they must then get uglier once they are in office.
Maybe she'll stay off the son's campaign trail. No Grand Canyon photo ops this time.
Another empty suit; nothing there.
All I can say is: Keep Momma at home. Do not allow her
to campaign for you and change your last name from Heiniz to anything else except Kerry.
28 is linked to 35... look at them.
id'n't that n-i-c-e? (/s)
this country rebelled against england for reasons of aristocracy and royalty.
and now on the democrat plantation what do we have? a new royalty of sorts:
hollywood, sports, music celebrities. "celebrity trumps ideology", one said.
in politics increasingly families look upon political offices as something that they pass on to their spouses or children:
the kennedys, the bushes, the clintons ... and a list of congressional and senatorial offices handed over to the wives after the husbands died in plane wrecks or skiing into trees.
with 293,000,000 people can't we do better?
John Heinz WAS a Republican and a good solid, decent guy. Take it from an old acquaintance. Btw, Teraaaayza was actually completely different around 35 year ago. Amazing what living with a Dem. like Kerry can do to you.
As long as he gets his allowance.
Crazy ladu Terry Kerry ping.
Geez, that's scary.
"Well, you know, I don't know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good.......... But I don't know that she's ever had a real job I mean, since she's been grown up.
What a gem!
LOL. This child will never serve in Congress, he also may be frightened that his Mom may go follow him around any campaign and spew out those gems like, "let them run naked".
all his goofy over the top accusations against bush that never happened. (ie the draft)
She is obviously a tool of the evil genius - Karl Rove.
Or - perhaps - a servant of the overlords who actually told Karl Rove what to say and do in 2004.
NEW YORK - Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators.
Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids, said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites). Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes.
