Skip to comments.There's A Reason Howie Carr Called Him "Live Shot"(Kerry)

I apologize, in advance, for the vanity posting but, given the events of the last two days, I just have to get this off my chest:
As someone who grew up in Massachusetts, I have known of John Kerry for most of my life. He was Lt. Governor for a while and has served as Senator for many years now. It has been known, by Republicans and Democrats alike, that John Forbes Kerry is now, has always been and will always be an empty suit. Howie Carr, columnist for the Boston Herald and local radio host, labeled him "Live Shot" for his penchant self-promotion. The nickname stuck, again, on both sides of the aisle, because of his reputation as a Boston Brahman who considered political power and money as his birthright and what else is the media and the little people for but to promote and sustain his "legitimate" place in the world?
This whole thing about what he said about our military would be funny if the stakes weren't so high. That the Democrats have allowed him to promote himself at their expense would also be quite funny, again, were it not for the stakes involved. That a national party could repeatedly endorse, or at least not promote, this preening, pampered, egotistical, poseur, defies belief. All of this was known of Mr. Kerry and yet...here we are. People!!! THERE IS A REASON HE IS CALLED "LIVESHOT"!!!
Libs don't think....they feel!
"LIVESHOT" MUST RESIGN TODAY!!! IF THE DEMS MADE TRENT LOTT RESIGN OVER A "JOKE" THEN DUMB-ASS, HORSE FACED KERRY MUST RESIGN!!!
The clip Howie plays of Kerry saying, from the Dem Convention in 2004, "I'm John Kerry and I'm reporting for duty" should be altered to "I'm John Kerry and I'm nothing but dog duty."
MY questions...what are the filing dates to run for the Senate in 2008, and if Romney's WH campaign bombs early, have you heard any talkt hat he can be persuaded to go for the Senate..?
Howie Carr also recounts a number of instances when Kerry jumped to the front of a line for something -- fried clams for example -- saying "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?"
Kerry has truly finally jumped the shark. Sorry it took so long.
I am not 100% sure, but I think it would be easier to use digital trickery to get him to say "I'm John Kerry and I'm full of 'duty'." ;)
I love the Kerry clip "I'm fascinated by rap." Right there, what a fraud!!!!!!
LMAO! That works.
are you sure Howie says he came up with it? I thought I read in his book that he repeated it but someone else said it first but maybe I am thinking of "JFK Just for Kerry"
Integrity, Integrity, Integrity.
A few days ago, Howie was complaining that he wasn't getting credit for coining "Live Shot". So, whether he did or he didn't, he thinks he did. ;-)
Ivan, isn't that doody, as in Howdy Doody, the NBC White House Correspondent, David Gregory?
yeah that sounds like that cheap fat bastard,
I know he definately takes credit for fat matt
Thank God for Chuck Schumer in the Senate - so that Dems can say they didn't nominate the Senate's stupidest member to be President...
In all likelihood, Kerry will never know it. I mean, yeah, he'll eventually realize that he isn't the president, but he'll never know why, and it will always be somebody else's fault: hijacked votes, evil Republicans, media frenzy, stupid, short-sighted voters who will not grant him his entitled place in government and history, et cetera ad infinitum. He will always believe he has a shot next time around because is not sufficiently self-aware to realize that he is a class-A schmendrick, and because he is unaware that objective reality may not be "spun," that reality is not just what one says it is in the latest press-release, and that people have memories that are not subject to his revision and reinterpretation (unless, apparently, they are Democratic people and are trained for doublethink and the use of the memory hole).
I'd like to see a wide call for Kerry's resignation. Republicans have resigned for less.
I would settle for him at least stepping down from the Armed Forces committee. That he is on that committee is absurd and offensive.
