    A Web site partially funded by Teresa Heinz Kerry offers a report glorifying Hezbollah (Hizbullah) suicide bombers as "deified in paradise and venerated on earth for fighting Israel" - and praises the terrorist group's support network for women widowed by their husband's "martyrdom" attacks.

    Teresa Heinz Kerry has lashed out against the "scoundrels” and "sunshine patriots” who have criticized Rep. John Murtha for calling for an immediate redeployment of U.S. troops in Iraq. "The orchestrated assault on Murtha should alarm us all,” the Heinz family heiress – wife of Sen. John Kerry – writes in an opinion piece carried by the Johnstown (Pa.) Tribune-Democrat. "Just when you thought the debate could sink no lower, the politicians committed to staying the course in Iraq turned the fire hoses of smear and intimidation on this icon of national security. "They said he had given aid and...

    I guess it's not important that a future first lady may be mentally unbalanced. It's been a long, strange trip indeed for Teresa Heinz Kerry. Less than 30 years ago, she was a rabid Republican, the wife of another senator, trashing Ted Kennedy as a "perfect bastard" and the Democratic Party as "putrid." Last night, she shared the dais with Teddy Boy – who turns out to be her new husband's biggest (in terms of girth as well as enthusiasm) cheerleader. When I first reported that Teresa Heinz Kerry was behind the funding of radical causes including Act-Up, Islamist jihadists,...

    Files reveal Heinz Kerry wealth PITTSBURGH — Sen. John Heinz III had about $423 million in cash, stocks, trusts and other property when he died in a 1991 plane crash, according to documents released Friday. The estate of the Pennsylvania Republican — whose widow, Teresa, later married Sen. John Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat — paid about $41 million in federal estate taxes and $17 million in state death taxes, the records show. Judge Frank Lucchino had ruled in March that the law favored opening the records, which were sealed the day after Heinz, 52, an heir to the Heinz ketchup...

"Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz told a lunch for Seattle Rep. Adam Smith on Saturday, referring to the brothers as "hard right" Republicans. She argued that it is "very easy to hack into the mother machines," in quotes picked up by the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

    A light tax burden and contempt for the institution of motherhood? Just another day in the life of the potential first lady. Between fits of demeaning motherhood and revealing the miniscule tax burden she pays on her enormous income, it has been a deservedly terrible week for potential first lady Teresa Heinz Kerry. Tax Troubles Mrs. Kerry released two pages of her 2003 individual income tax form, which expose how she used tax shelters to avoid paying her “fair share” of income taxes. In fact, she contributed a smaller percentage of her income in taxes than most middle class taxpayers. She...

    Teresa Heinz Kerry touched off a firestorm yesterday — and was forced to quickly apologize — by saying First Lady Laura Bush has never held "a real job," even though she's been a teacher, librarian and full-time mom. "I don't know that she's ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up," Mrs. Kerry told USA Today in making the case that she'd be a better first lady.

    Senator John Kerry's wife reinforced her reputation as a political loose cannon yesterday when she said President George W Bush's wife, Laura, had never had a real job. Teresa Heinz Kerry appeared not only to make the politically hazardous move of disdaining the role of a stay-at-home mother, but also to forget that Mrs Bush was a teacher and librarian. Her unguarded remark in the USA Today newspaper risks infuriating suburban housewives, the "swing" constituency her husband has spent the past fortnight wooing from Mr Bush. Asked how she would be different from Mrs Bush, she said: "I don't know...

    Teresa Heinz Kerry issued an apology yesterday for saying she doubted that Laura Bush, the president's wife, "ever had a real job." Bush's work as a teacher and librarian in Texas, and then as a mother of twin girls, has been well publicized. In comments that touched off a bit of panic among some Democrats, and some disgust in the Bush camp, Heinz Kerry -- wife of Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kerry -- told USA Today that she would differ from Bush as first lady by continuing her career as a philanthropist and also because her "experience is a...
