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.

The Clinton-Gore entourage came to my town back in '92 and had lunch at a mom and pop place. Afterwards the owner had brass plaques installed at the various booths and bar seats, "Bill Clinton sat here, Sept. 5th 1992", Did for Gore, Tipper, Hillary and Chelsea.
The place sold last year and the new owner keep the same seating arrangment and tore off the plaques!.
"The donut part I get, but what about bread, or are you Atkinsing? My point was you don't have to be a lazy man to have soft hands. What about chefs, chemists, doctors, engineers, architects, designers, etc? Not all manly men have calluses."
I don't do fad(s) dieting. Moderation is the plan. I have met and shook the hands of hetero men who are doctors, chemists and they had strong tough manly hands. I've also shook the hand of hetero men who have similiar occupations and their hands were soft and mushy like a new born babies bottom. Grossed me out. And I soon learned they were the ones who "shoved" their work load onto others ie., lazy
NO!! Just as bad if not worse.
And please, none with both of them doing the thumbs up right next to each other. So close they could kiss! Those pictures have "GAY" issues and "MEN OVER 50 PROSTATE CHECKUP" issues. I don't wanna see them! Because I swear they are smelling each others thumbs when we are not looking.
He could be a guitar player.
I noticed that his left hand fingernails are shorter than his right. That's a pretty strong clue that he is a fingerpicker. Mine are trimmed similarly. But I'll be the first to admit that it doesn't look presidential.
Funny that you mention this...I was just noticing last night as the cameras scanned the crowd. My thought: "Gosh, what a bunch of stupid-looking, ugly people!"
That's what I thought about the DNC speaker line up. They looked like contestants for reality show, Last Comic Standing.
What is with the long, creepy fingernails?
Damn, I think we have a similar sense of humor...scary...Hee,Hee
I heard of clip of Kerry on the radio: "I'll have a chili and a Frosty, a chocolate Frosty."
Is there any other kind? He hasn't been to a fast food place in 20 years!
That's better than finger pointing. If you look real real close you can see that Edwards had a twin that never developed. That's a little foot sticking out of his lip.
Ok, now, can someone use that ZOOM lens on that carbunkle?
Well you'd like my hands, then.
I am rolling on the floor, thank you! Gives me something to think about on the drive home.
I wasn't aware that Wendy's had been in operation for 27 years.
SIZE 10?!? LM(size 6)AO
"She's so normal,'' Mrs. Riggio said of Mrs. Edwards. She said that during dinner, over plates heaped with fried chicken, pork ribs, beef ribs, macaroni salad, green beans and peach cobbler, Mrs. Edwards told her how hard it was to watch her weight during the campaign.
"She said she put away all her size 10's because she can't get into them and won't be able to until after the campaign,'' Mrs. Riggio said. "It was great to admit something like that. Very human.''

I can't help but think that Effin wears roomy "pleats and seats" trousers to disguise a pair of adult diapers.
Because they photograph well.
The better to scratch himself with and put in for a Purple Heart.
What a lovely manicure. Hands that have never done an honest day's work.
I'm betting that Heinz-Kerry did not order or eat (note that her meal wasn't specified). You know, I can respect that. There is no way in the world I could be convinced that she ever ate at Wendy's before and I don't think she would start now. I am beginning to think that this is why she also refuses to let sKerry kiss her in public. The man didn't do it before and why should she allow it only for a photo op?
Maybe he sports nail polish late at night!
See post 73. She had the chili, and looks like she ordered TEA!?!
The only size 10 on her is perhaps her shoe size!
This is not too far from me at all.
I am just glad I am down for the count and didn't get caught up in the traffic jam this visit caused.
Yep. They were in business when I was in high school, and I graduated 29 years ago.
29 years? My God, I'm approaching Old Farthood.
What, Denny's wasn't open?
Look at his wedding ring. Thats cheaper than mine and I bought it a Walmart
This is where he spilled the coffee in his lap.
>>Ahh, you've never known the love of a baker. Too bad for you.
Not to mention a good (blackjack) dealer.
No. He no doubt has a manicurist for that mundane task.
I was just going to post your comment about Dave Thomas. He was a wonderful man, and I bet the Kerry campaign didn't even know Wendy's pro-life position. HAHAHAHA!!
Why does it look like the Marine is being scolded and why isn't Kerry lying unconscious in a pool of his own blood after both Marines have kicked his ass?
I'm thinking size 20 or so. 10? Uh uh.
I have a funny power point on Edwards family and Wendy's. FReep mail me for your copy.
Yeah...some words come to mind when I look at them...
milquetoast....prettyboy.....never done a hard days' work in his life....simpy.....wimpy.....candyass.....
Has my vote for tag line of the CENTURY.
What state and city? I'll patronize that cafe, and thank the owner for being a patriot.
... This time, dozens of peering reporters and photographers may have ruined the romance. But at least Kerry paid the bill.
Edwards and his wife had hearty meals (as in super-sized) of burgers and fries and shared a chocolate Frosty. Teresa Heinz Kerry pointed at a picture of chili on the menu and asked the cashier what it was before ordering a bowl. Her husband had the same, along with a Frosty. ...
This soldier looks like he's got a 'tude about Kerry. You know, the war hero.
This picture PISSES ME OFF BIGTIME! THE F***ING TRAITOR IS STICKING HIS FINGER IN THE CHEST OF MARINE SERGEANT AND TALKIN' TRASH TO HIM!
If I was there, I swear to God I would have attacked that bastard! Dammit to hell, 33 years later and my damn blood is boiling all over again!
For your information, these two fine patriots in uniform in the photo, are not soldiers, they are Marines! (with a capital M)
I was always taught the salute aligns the fingertips and the eyebrow. His salute is halfway up his forehead.
But basically, I just object to him saluting and 'reporting for duty'. He's spent 30+ years cr@pping on the military and now wants to run as GI John!
There are democrats who served heroically. John isn't one of them. And he'll never be one of us.
This thread has been the funniest one I have read lately!!
Geez ... what happened to that link. Here's another:
I will be brutally honest: when I had to get a dress for my daughter's wedding in February, I was horrified to find that I needed a size 18. I joined Weightwatchers, and am now down to a size 14.
I haven't seen a size 10 since 1977. If I made a statement like that to anyone who knows me, they would laugh in my face.
This was a lie, pure and simple.
"Someone has to find out if Wendy's serves DEL MONTE ketchup!"
You don't know - haven't you eaten there/ They serve the good stuff - Heinz Ketchup - from Pittsburgh!!!!
I can only imagine ... eeewww.
