Elite Alert -- John Kerry, Man of the People and the Folks in the Cheap Seats

By Gary Starr for the Neville Awards

Poor John Kerry, man of the people….as long as he doesn't have to actually inhabit the same world as the people.

You see, Kerry is a man greatly frustrated by the folks who are upset with his party, i.e. the Democrats. They've been duped by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. And in the run-up to the shellacking the Democrats eventually received on November 2nd Kerry let his feelings be known.

In late September Kerry blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle panicked Democrats were facing against Republicans across the nation:

"We have an electorate that doesn't always pay that much attention to what's going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what's happening," Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center.

We aren't sure what "simple slogans" the good Senator was referring to. In fact the only slogans that come to mind are "Hope and Change" and "Yes We Can."

We all know how that has worked out.

As the November debacle neared Kerry threw down the gauntlet once again. Speaking to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Kerry complained that we are in "a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don't weigh in. It's all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics."

How truly awful it must be for the Senate's richest man to have to put up with those of us in the cheap seats. How rarified the view must be from the deck of his yacht -- moored in Rhode Island to avoid the sky-high taxes that Kerry's liberal friends impose on the cheap-seat folks in Massachusetts.

Kerry must have been particularly enraged that all of his hard work on the Cap and Trade legislation was for naught. Cap and Trade collapsed in the Senate. So much for truth and science from the liberal point of view. When Kerry says we've abandoned science and truth, we can only ask: If the truth was so compelling, why did the "climate scientists" at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit have to fake their data to "hide the decline"?

Perhaps when Kerry is up for re-election, he could do us all a favor and step down so he doesn't have to dirty his hands trolling for votes from the cheap seats. Maybe, with his vast fortune that he married into, he could singlehandedly revive Air America and take over Sen. Al Franken's old show. That way he his audience of tens of hundreds could thrill to the daily dose of how short-order, lowest common denominator and cheap-seat Americans truly are.

And Bill Maher could be his sidekick.

Thank God this strutting poseur and fop was not elected president in 2004.
