Teresa Heinz Kerry: "Shove it"

The democRATs/liberals are always preaching tolerance. The irony in the following story is interesting, yet I'm not at all surprised:



Posted on Mon, Jul. 26, 2004

Heinz Kerry calls for more civil tone in politics, then says "shove it"

PETER JACKSON

Associated Press

BOSTON - Teresa Heinz Kerry urged her home-state delegates to the Democratic National Convention to restore a more civil tone to American politics, then minutes later told a newspaperman to "shove it."

"We need to turn back some of the creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits that are coming into some of our politics," she told her fellow Pennsylvanians at a Sunday night reception at the Massachusetts Statehouse.

Minutes later, Colin McNickle, the editorial page editor of the conservative Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, questioned her on exactly what she meant by the term "un-American," according to a tape of the encounter recorded by Pittsburgh television station WTAE.

Heinz Kerry said "I didn't say that" several times to McNickle. She then turned to confer with Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and others. When she faced McNickle again a short time later, he continued to question her, and she replied, "You said something I didn't say. Now shove it."

The Pennsylvania delegation was the first to be visited by the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee John Kerry. Before her encounter with McNickle, she criticized the tenor of modern political campaigns, without being specific.

"I remember a time when people in political parties in Pennsylvania talked to one another and actually got things done," said Heinz Kerry, whose first husband, Republican Sen. John Heinz of Pennsylvania, was killed in a plane crash in 1991. "We have to go back to those days when we can do things properly, for the people need it."

"My prayers for you, for me, for the country, for the world, are that we keep this at a high level, with dignity, with respect and with a great idealism and courage that took our forefathers to build this great nation," she said.

Also Sunday, Heinz Kerry acknowledged being nervous about her scheduled Tuesday night speech.

She said she had to practice "a speech that is written on the TelePrompTers, and I'm kind of dreading it, because I am generally unscripted."

Pennsylvania's delegation to the Democratic National Convention revived plans to attend the city-sponsored reception at the Massachusetts capitol only hours before Heinz Kerry's appearance, after the threat of union picketing by local police and firefighters faded away.

Previously, to avoid conflicts with protests by the city police and firefighter unions, state party leaders made plans to hold an alternate reception at the delegation's hotel. But they canceled the hotel event after the firefighters reached a contract accord Sunday.

I am definitely no Kerry supporter or fan of Teresa and if that scum sucking liar gets elected all Heinz Products I currently own will go to the food shelf so all our Bush hating, down trodden, underpriviledged Bernie Sanders supporting, parents up here who make their kids use the free lunch program so that they can continue to finance their new snow machines and extended cab pick ups can eat. Sort of like the four years I swore off peanut butter when that bubble head Jimmy, let me give away the Panama Canal, Carter was in office. However, the only fault I see with Teresa's action with the abnoxious reporter was that she didn't snatch that tape recorder and cram it up his fourth point of contact. But then, being the wife of John, I only chase down and kill folks that are no longer legally combatants, Kerry she does sort of fit the mold of words not action.

Dear Col. I applaud your consideration of banning Heinz products from your kitchen. I did that years ago because the Heinz Foundations and endowments give away millions (about 4.9 in the last 5 years) of dollars to radical environmental groups and anti-firearm groups. These ketchup dollars are given to "pass thru" organizations that keep these tax deductable contributions confidential and then distribute from there to the radical causes. Money from pass through organizations like this fund stuff that some may be be very curious about, might even show up on someones domestic terrorism watch radar. (edited for spelling...)

Thing is Sir, she said it, then said she didn't. She lied, so why be civil?

Our esteemed Prime Minister has had several gaffes like this one, so Mrs. Kerry is in good lefty company.

1. Mz. Heinz-Kerry is a loose cannon that can do him a lot more harm than good. May be time to put the would be First "Lady" back in the closet till after the election. Her comments that she is used to speaking extemporaneously and "unscripted" would do the President a lot more good that her gold-digging husband.

2. So it is okay to refuse to answer questions from "a right-wing rag"? I thought that they roundly castigated the President for insulting a reporter from what I would refer to (and frequently do) as "a left-wing rag", which has been known to fabricate stories and permit their "journalists" to do the same? I guess that it is okay for one group, but not the other?

3. I predict that this story will be quickly sunk, like the one that observed the irony in Kerry taking a Rolls-Royce to speak to the common man about American jobs in Michigan. Great thing is that it was a reporter from one of the major papers from a VERY important swing state. Hey, isn't Michigan an important swing state as well? Think they will speak to Her Highness the Billionairess about this?

What exactly is an "un-Pennsylvanian ... trait"?

When you criticize their policy positions, they cry that you are impugning their patriotism. Then, rather than engage in an honest debate over policy differences with the current Administration, they impugn others' patriotism:

"To have a couple of people, who escaped four, five, six times and deferred and deferred and deferred calling him anything regarding his service is in and of itself unpatriotic. Unpatriotic," - Teresa Heinz Kerry, May 2004, on George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and other critics of her husband's record.

"John Ashcroft is not a patriot. John Ashcroft is a descendant of Joseph McCarthy." - Howard Dean, September 2003.

"In 2000 the Repubs stole the election - now they're trying to steal Patriotism." - Wesley Clark, November 2003.

"He is not leading this country in the right direction, and he's declared war on the American people." - Richard Gephardt, about George W. Bush, August 2003.
