“Jen Psaki said”
She also said Kerry wasn’t on his boat until he was busted.
BTW, David Shuster and Jake Tapper attended her wedding to another liberal democrat operative.
Typical beltway incest. Go figure. Not sure why some think that Tapper will ever do real investigative reporting. He will go so far and then no further. Every.single.time.
“She also said Kerry wasnt on his boat until he was busted.

Love, dedication and Rahm Emanuel helped Jen Psaki and Gregory Mecher get down the aisle.
Psaki was six weeks into a new communications gig with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Rahm Emanuel, then chairman of the DCCC, was traveling to Philadelphia to speak at an event where she would be handling the media.
As Psaki, a Luddite, scrambled to set up a Web video for Emanuel, a call came on her cellphone — the chairman’s driver was lost and needed directions.
“And I have no sense of direction. I didn’t know even where we were, but I was like ‘Oh, I think you take a left,’ “ recalls Psaki, now 31.
Mecher, a deputy finance director at the DCCC who regularly traveled in “a very small entourage” with Emanuel, was on the other end of the line that January 2006 day, taking instructions from Psaki that led them even further afield. Finally they reached the event site, and once Mecher moved on from thinking, “Why did she get us lost?” he thought: “She’s cute.”
Since then, the better part of her waking hours has revolved around Obama and his political pursuits. Jen had previously worked for Senator John Kerrys failed bid for the presidency, caught the bug for such madness, and wanted another go at it. A rising star in the Democratic party, Obama had the back story and principles that appealed to her. People she knew from her Kerry days, including Robert Gibbs, who would go on to become White House press secretary, and Burton, were now working for the senator from Illinois. They had some conversations, and she signed on.
Sounds good, Jen thought, and off she went. Living in ignoble conditions and putting in godless hours, she worked for the Iowa Democratic Party, then in the press office of the Kerry campaign, first in Des Moines, then Washington, D.C. Among other duties, she was spokeswoman for the adult children of Kerry, his wife, Theresa Heinz and John Edwards.
