Why the Long Face, John?
John Kerry stepped in it again. The guy just can’t do comedy. Why? Because he’s a stiff. When he beat former Republican MA Gov. Bill Weld in a nail-biter senate race in 1996, he stepped to the podium to make his victory speech and said, “What a long strange trip it has been.” Because Weld is a Dead Head. Get it? Nobody else did either. They might have if he hadn’t pronounced “been” as “bean,” like some big-haired Thurston Howell III. The guy should never go for the laughs – except the unintentional kind, such as his 2004 presidential campaign. Now that was a real scream.
Look at the upside – this is Kerry’s Macaca moment, so he won’t be running for president anytime soon, or with luck, ever again.
