Sen. John F. Kerry jumped into the political fray surrounding the federal government's sluggish hurricane relief efforts yesterday, jetting to storm-ravaged communities with 24 tons of supplies and a pointed message for the Bush administration. ``This is not rocket science,'' the Bay State senator said before boarding a plane to Lafayette, La.

``This is not rocket science,'' the Bay State senator said

Nagin and Blanco disagree, it's apparently over their heads, no pun.

Why didn't he send that plane two weeks ago? Why did he have to call a presser calling attention to his 'good deed'? I see he has learned nothing from his defeat last year....

The "rocket scientist" show up two weeks late, and this is supposed to upstage the President?

It must be hard to find a cargo plane with seating for "First-Class" passengers...

`` This - is - not - rocket - science , ''

This from the same guy who, while addressing folks in Green Bay, called the hallowed ground of Lambeau Field, Lambert Field..

the federal government's sluggish hurricane relief efforts
What "sluggish" efforts?

Gov. Blanco still hasn't completely relinquished her control. It's as if an ambulance driver had a flat tire on the way to pick up the patient, then when she finally did get to the hospital refused to sign the papers to get the patient admitted. In such case, how much good can the hospital really do?

Well if there's one thing Bubble Boy Kerry knows about, it's rocket science. After all, he did spend time in the Canaveral training center. I think it was sometime after he got back from serving in Vietnam...

The arrogance of this buffoon is almost laughable.

You just know that if he were president now (pardon me while I stop shuddering) he would be blaming Bush and saying the previous administration had 4 years and did nothing to fix the levees.

If Kerry were President things would have been different.

The MSM would have focused completely on local officials, and they hysterical reporters would have been asking survivors to vent their anger on their mayor and gov, instead of FEMA.

The NY elite write the script for this country.

And if TerAYza was the first lady she'd be dispensing gin-soaked raisins at some refugee center.

I can't pull up the article but does it mention that Lurch PAID for NONE of this stuff? It's all donated by other people...including A SHELTER FOR HOMELESS VETERANS. And delivered on a UPS donated plane, not "Ketchup One".

The 'Viet Cong Negotiator' has been AWOL since January... he's back to what he's been doing for 20 years... showing up just for his paycheck.

He has such great timing. Two weeks late and Bush is out there talking and nobody cares about SKerry.
