John Kerry bitter as Tea Party gains steam
bostonherald.com ^ | Thursday September 16, 2010 | Hillary Chabot and Edward Mason

Posted on 09/16/2010 6:26:38 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

U.S. Sen. John Kerry yesterday mocked Republicans as “Sarah Palin’s party” even as the New Hampshire Senate candidate she backed claimed victory in Tuesday’s primary and a Tea Party favorite emerged as the GOP’s best hope to break the Democratic stranglehold on the Bay State delegation.

“I think the Tea Party couldn’t ask for any better publicity than to be denounced by a millionaire who dodges paying taxes on his yacht,” said conservative gadfly Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit.

Kerry seized on a Republican rift following Tea Party victories across the country - among them, Palin’s “chosen radical rightwing candidate” GOP U.S. Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell, who triumphed in Delaware over establishment Republican Mike Castle.

“The news from Delaware is crystal clear: It’s Sarah Palin’s party now,” Kerry wrote in a fund-raising e-mail titled “Delawow!” distributed yesterday. “We have to fight back. Click here to contribute right now to make sure we defeat the Tea Party extremists.”

But conservative Washington observers said Republicans will get the last laugh come November.

“Kerry is the guy whose political instincts are always wrong. This guy’s presidential campaign was a punch line,” Reynolds said. “To call the Tea Party extremists is a joke.”

John Kerry, a part of the establishment. The Establishment is part of the problem why we are in heavy debt.

I hope John Kerry goes to bed every night cursing Karl Rove and the Ohio voting machines.

Didn’t he serve in Viet Nam, where he shot himself in the ass with the enemy’s rice?

Why should Kerry be bitter if the Tea Party is supposed to be such a killer for the GOP? Why the long face, John??

Yep. I think the democrats are starting to realize that their survival is going to require that they moderate themselves back to the center.

However, they’ve created a rabid far left group of supporters who will become violent if the democrats begin to moderate.

They have big problems.

When the little people start feeling their oats, bitter people like Kerry cling to their yachts and their mansions.

Usually, any “extremist” movement has less than 10% support.
That would be the outright communists/socialists.

The TP folks have huge support. They are not “extreme” in the least.

“Jul 2, 2010 ... Thirty percent of Americans, on average, identify as Tea Party supporters “

That is kind of you to pick on such a little event. I am not a baby killer as accused by Kerry so I would have gone for the throat with his treason.

The only way I could think to make it better would be...

“I think the Tea Party couldn't ask for any better publicity than to be denounced by a millionaires husband who dodges paying taxes on his wife's yacht.”

I remember the Kerry entourage trying to connect with the “common” people during the 2004 presidential campaign. They stopped the campaign bus by a fast food restaurant, made a public show of going in and buying bags of burgers or tacos, and once on the bus, threw it all out so they could eat gourmet brie and watercress sandwiches.

And they even park their yachts in another state with lower taxes.

Or:

"I think the Tea Party couldn't ask for any better publicity than to be denounced by a left-wing multimillionaire who dodges paying taxes on a yacht purchased in cash from his trophy wife's ex-husband's billion-dollar fortune".

You know... politics... if you make the most of it, you work hard, you use some common sense, and you make an effort to be patriotic, you can do well. If you don’t... you get stuck as the ski-bum-boy-toy of a gin-soaked ketchup dowager.

The establishment is responsible for the heavy debt and for the fascist ideals of total control that has gripped our Congress and elite. I am glad Kerry is worried. All of them should be worried.

Obviously some of the rice “migrated” to his brain - he has the political instincts of a pot of boiled rice (apologies to rice lovers everywhere).

Might be because the fun coffee clatch of the senate won’t be so fun anymore. Hope they deny lots of unanimous consents so that poor John will actually have to vote on things.

And if he is nominated for Secretary of State, he might not breeze through with so many firebrands in the new senate. Buddies like Castle, Murkowski, Crist, and Specter would have voted for him and wouldn’t have the effrontery to ask him questions that he deems beneath him and impertinent.
