John and Elizabeth Edwards Celebrate Anniversary at Wendy's--Joined by the Kerrys (pics)
Washington Post ^

Posted on 07/30/2004 2:13:13 PM PDT by GulliverSwift

TOWN OF NEWBURGH, N.Y., July 31 -- John and Elizabeth Edwards celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary today, and they and this small upstate town will not soon forget it.

The John Kerry campaign pulled its 10-bus caravan up to Wendy's restaurant to accommodate the vice presidential couple, who had their first date at the fast-food restaurant and always dine there on their anniversary . This is not one they will soon forget because the celebration included John and Teresa Heinz Kerry, Tom Brokaw, George Stephanopoulos, and 100 members of the media.

"So you understand, this is our anniversary. We always celebrate our anniversary at Wendy's," Elizabeth Edwards told the clerk as she ordered her Classic Combo Single.

Ditto for her mate -- but he went with cheese. And John Kerry went for the Chili and chocolate frosty. The power couples certainly caused a stir -- but it was Ben Affleck who moved with a throng. A Democrat and friend of Kerry's, the movie actor said he joined the trip to learn about the political process and not always be around just for the glamorous work.

Ben Affleck? What an idiot. Well, he's probably checking out where he's going to be working in a few years.

"See this, Teraizzzza? This is called a disposable cup. Inside of it is something called "soda." Don't ask me why they call it that.

Mr. Kerry doesn't look like he's ever held a soda cup before, but Mrs. Edwards does.

After Mrs. Edwards left Wendy's, management had to scramble to replenish the food supply...

With all of that "hand shaking" and "baby holding" to do, he's going to injure someone! Or worse yet, he could cause a nasty scratch to his buddy John during one of their many embraces! (sorry, I'm out of control)...

Check the background; looks like Lurch was really good for business. SS guy on right is making sure the Kerry/Edwards $14 is all they're gonna get today.

Do you suppose Teresa Miss Liberty Heinz asked for her meal to be SUPER sized in five different languages? Anyway, I have a hard time believing Mizz Thang would lower her discriminating continental taste buds for a fast burgar.

I hear he won't allow the secret service to speak to him or take pictures with him. Looks like the people sitting to his left got that order as well! Totally ignoring him! I love it! LOL!!

He's ugly, has long nails and holds that soda like he's got an Ethiopia Yergacheffe latte at Starbucks.

A caption for the one where he looks like he's praying--a pose we seem to see him in often:

Hello, God, this is me, John. Can I ask a favor? Can my loss next November be not overly humiliating for me? Thanks.

Was this chili made with organically fed, chemical free, free range beef, and do the kitchen staff have health insurance provided by Wendy's? If not, I'm out of here, because I'm a man of the people. Come on Theresa there's some goose liver pate, Perrier water and those imported French cornichons that you like so much, in the bus. I'll have my butler prepare plates for both of us.

"What long fingernails Mr. Kerry has!"

Since you posted it first I noticed that to. But the long finger nails are only long on one hand. Whats up with that?

My personal taste, I can't stand men with purchased service manicured finger nails. I know, I'm being nit picky but it's so unmanly to me. ewwww It shows me the man is too above picking up a tool in the garage or whatever. Soft plush hands on a man (lazy) grosses me out.

No kidding! And these restaurants likely aren't created to accomidate that kind of FIRE HAZARD crowd. Most that I've noticed, top out in the 70ish patron range.

Good one, but honestly, isn't he aware of ZOOM lenses? Someone needs to fill him in on the dangers of long fingernails, stray nose hairs, and angry ear hairs! It's called G-R-O-O-M-I-N-G, John! You wouldn't want your fellow Americans to pick you apart, would you? (where are those f***ing balloons?)

If it's only in one hand, that means he plays guitar. I heard he likes to play Spanish guitar in his spare time

Wendy's uses Heinz ketchup packets. I've been told that isn't what they use in the in-store pump although I'm not sure how accurate that is.

According to the part of the article:

Heinz Kerry was told that Newburgh was heavily Republican and a local television reporter asked her how she felt "in the heart of enemy territory."
