Skip to comments.John Kerry bitter as Tea Party gains steam
Posted on 09/16/2010 6:26:38 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
U.S. Sen. John Kerry yesterday mocked Republicans as Sarah Palins party even as the New Hampshire Senate candidate she backed claimed victory in Tuesdays primary and a Tea Party favorite emerged as the GOPs best hope to break the Democratic stranglehold on the Bay State delegation.
I think the Tea Party couldnt 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, Palins chosen radical rightwing candidate GOP U.S. Senate nominee Christine ODonnell, who triumphed in Delaware over establishment Republican Mike Castle.
The news from Delaware is crystal clear: Its Sarah Palins 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 guys 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??
I’m on John’s email list.
Yesterday I got one begging for bucks for Russ Feingold.
People in Wisconsin must be waking up.........
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.
Now, that is going to leave a mark...
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.
Just put some Ketchup on it Kerry.
“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.
J F’n Kerry needs to stock up on rum and raisins.
Don’t poke the grizzlies Juan.
And they even park their yachts in another state with lower taxes.
He must be spending his spare time rereading Rules For Radicals to find out where he messed up.
"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".
“Can I... get me uh huntin’ license here?”
How about a Philly steak sandwich with swiss cheese?
I thought John Kerry was dead.
From the same man who asked for Swiss cheese on his Philly cheese steak...
Kerry and Rove are on the same page regarding the Tea Party.
John Kerry... I remember him.
Does Kerry realize how totally irrelevant he is? I do like his sugar mamma’s ketchup, though.
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.
And that number will only grow.
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.
I still refuse to buy Heinz ....just because of the name.
Quote of the day.
he always reminds me of dr hill from reanimator.
Kahzaktly right on the button.
Kerry - the privileged elite’s spoiled brat. The guy who thinks he’s above the rest of us. He should shut up.
Make that Swiss Cheese with sliced tomatoes.
I was taught(back in the mid sixties: “Men are creatures of extremes.”
John Kerry is an extreme left wing creature!
Trust babies just don’t get any respect nowadays!
John Kerry is so dumb, he couldn’t make it as a spell checker in an M & M factory.
I heard that Obama likes his with arugula and a balsamic vinaigrette.
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).
"Hey: half of these were printed upside down!."
He reminds me of Lurch of the Adams Family.
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.
Does anyone out there actually CARE what John Kerry thinks or says. Why would anyone put a microphone in front of this hang-dogs’ face?
“Can I get me ah hunt’in license here? Did’ja know I served in Vietnam?” long horse face speaks again.
Hey, hey, hey now. John Kerry served in Vietnam ya know. Cambodia even...
