Oh, That's Rich « Politics As Usual »

John Kerry's wife apparently doesn't want a full accounting of her wealth made known for either tax or publicity purposes, or both.

She said that a couple months before, but why bother? If she's elected as First Lady, she will have to reveal it's only wise since most first First Ladies do the same.

However I saw on a show that Kerry won't be taxing the rich class, such as themselves but small businesses. I think that's what we all need to be focusing on.

Did you see the new Heinz ketchup bottle with the W?

Did you hear Conan joke the other day that Kerry and Edwards had tallied up their wealth and decided to vote Republican?

If THK wants to keep her stuff private, then she should stay in the private sector. Or, you know, give it a few months and let it get sucked up in what will inevitably (inevitably) be Kerry's across-the-board insane-in-the-membrane tax hikes. He's attacking Bush on his tax cuts that included the wealthy. He can't very well keep those cuts in place and save face - what face there is.

I can't help but wonder what the former Mr. Heinz (may he rest in peace) would think about the *turn* that the politics and financial interests of his former Missus has taken.

I guess that's the same old question that is always wondered about generations and varioius inheritors, but, I was puzzled mostly by the statements by Teresa Heinz Kerry herself when appearing on "Larry King Live" last week, about why she'd opted to go the Democrat way after being a Republican, based upon what and why. Seemed that she was simply speaking about social resentments as being her motivation, blaming "they". She seemed, actually, quite paranoid. Shame.

Worse, Kerry seemed to encourage her, was tender to and about her paranoia politically, socially. Which reinforces my impression of them both, and what they're doing today: pushing toward "social reform" as a tool to more or less "get" people. You know, victims striking out and all...

I could be wrong, I realize, was just how I read the body language on that show, what they both said and why, in regards to their political plans, made possible by Teresa's former husband, a Republican.

You know, several months ago I made a similar comment, something to the effect of it being somewhat dishonest or lacking in integrity somewhat that the money inherited from a Republican Senator could be used to directly fund a Democrat Senator's presidential bid. But no one else responded to that thought, so I dropped it. I may revisit it again, now.
