Not Again!
By Tom Smith

You may have seen this already, but here's the link to Drudge, who is reporting intern problems with Senator Kerry. As St. Boniface is sometimes credited with saying, "the higher a monkey climbs, the more you see of its butt." Maybe it sounded more delicate in Latin. If this is true, and I hope it isn't, all I can say is, Jeez, how stupid can one guy be? Well, maybe it's not true. Or maybe it is true, but not as important as Ken Starr's violation of our privacy rights. Or threatened violation. Or the appearance of a threatened violation. It's so hard to keep it all straight.

Here's an interesting bit on the would be First Lady:

Heinz Kerry has been talking up a storm lately, with a frankness that has her husband's campaign staffers up in arms. She told the Washington Post that she's lucky not to be throttled in the middle of the night when Kerry has Vietnam flashbacks. She described her prenuptial agreement and Botox treatments to Elle, and made a gunshot sound when asked what she'd do if Kerry were unfaithful. She never really suspected either of her husbands of cheating, she added. "What I expect of them, they have a right to expect of me," she said. "Maybe I'm into 18-year-olds." She told the Boston Globe of her shock and pleasure at seeing blacks in South Africa, where she was sent to boarding school from her home in Mozambique at age 13. "Our guys weren't so black and so big," she said. This month, Vanity Fair is scheduled to weigh in with that profile for which Heinz Kerry was posing in Georgetown.
