Lady Heinz speaks
By Tom Smith
What can the DNC powers be thinking?  Why put a mean, snooty-seeming Social X-Ray girl with a French accent, in front of the national audience to give a speech about her kept husband?  Isn't that un peu risque?  (French bad, and I don't care).  Why are they doing it?  Did She Who Must Be Obeyed (I mean Lady Heinz, not Hillary) demand it?  If they want to humanize Kerry, there must be better ways.  Maybe they want to humanize her.  But can she humanize herself?  I doubt it. Maybe they figure very few people will be watching anyway.
