Liveshot ‘swift-boated’ again!

Liveshot ‘swift-boated’ again! By Howie Carr | Sunday, July 25, 2010 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists

Forget “Isabel” - Liveshot Kerry should rename his $7 million sloop “The Botched Joke.”

You remember that was how he tried to explain away his nasty little dig at the military, back in 2006, saying that if kids don’t study hard, they’ll end up in Iraq. He said it was a botched joke. So I wonder how Liveshot is trying to explain this latest botched joke to his ancient gold-digging bride in her $9.2 million mansion on Brant Point in Nantucket.

Lovey, they’re swift-boating me again!

This is the most amusing story of the summer, by far. Great work, Inside Track. You can tell how devastating it is by the way the Globe is giving it a good leaving-alone, with wire copy. Yes, the Globe, the same dying broadsheet that railed for days about how two small-fry pols named Christy Mihos and Jack E. Robinson were trying to avoid paying their, uh, fair share of taxes on boats that were basically dinghies, at least compared to the Botched Joke.

Of course the difference was Mihos and Robinson were Republicans. Liveshot is one of the Beautiful People. Nothing to see here folks, move along. Filthy-rich Democrats refusing to pay their taxes isn’t news. Just ask Charlie Rangel, or Tim Geithner, or Tom Daschle.

Do as I say, not as I do. Taxes for thee but not for me. Just like when the Kennedys were allowed to file Rose’s will for probate in low-tax Florida, even though she hadn’t left Massachusetts for the last 12 years of her life.

John Kerry was for higher taxes before he was against them.

If he doesn’t like the name Botched Joke, perhaps Liveshot could take a hint from an old Beach Boys song and call it the Sloop Tax Free. Or go further back in musical history and lift the title of an old Louie Prima tune - the S.S. Just a Gigolo. Or the S.S. Manny Ortiz, or the S.S. Flip Flop.

Or maybe the S.S. Do You Know Who I Am?

Now Kerry’s flack says: Why of course the senior senator would be willing to pay the $500,000 or so he owes the commonwealth. Correction: Kerry won’t pay, his second wife’s first husband’s trust fund will pay.

All that Vietnam-era nautical training has taught him how to take evasive action . . . tax evasion.

A 76-foot boat - do you suppose Liveshot has a crew for it? I’m sure he’s not forgetting to pay their taxes, FICA, Medicare, etc.

Think how many of those Guatemalan illegals he wants to remain in the country on welfare could live in luxury on the Botched Joke. Auntie Zeituni would love a spin in the harbor.

Some people seemed surprised that Liveshot would have the boat built outside the country, I mean considering his daily professions of concern for the plight of jobless working-class Americans. But remember, until he started running for president, he was the proud owner of an imported Ducati motorcycle. By the time he went on with Jay Leno, he’d switched to a Harley. Wisconsin is a swing state, after all.

Liveshot, for once in your vain, shameless life, do the right thing. After all, it’s not like you actually earned the money. And it’s for the children. Article URL: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/columnists/view.bg?articleid=1270026

He still has the Ducati.

Howie: How come you didn’t mention his Navy records. I thought he was going to release them.

"He still has the Ducati."

Not that there's anything wrong with that! (But Kerry is the only person who can make a Ducati look like a weenie bike.)

This shows how stupid John Kerry is.
Because the keel was laid in New Zealand the boat can not be legally chartered in US waters.
Therefore he cant write off all of the expenses of upkeep as a charter vessel.

Hanoi John Effin Kerry has almost decided which pen he'll use to sign that SF-180.

Have you got a background article about Kerry’s boat? I am totally clueless about this controversy.

Of course you are assuming that he gives a damn about the laws.

Bet you he takes depreciation and every other deduction he can think of.

Look at election results in MA—that’s how the Globe is still alive. Thankfully the Herald’s still alive too. Does anyone actually pay those high prices for Globe? (Maybe lots of people read it online). Their demise was predicted but isn’t happening.

The Boston Globe seems to have missed this story.

So anyone wishing to let them know of it can write the Globe at newstip@globe.com as I did.
