If you're crying over Kerry (still)

Posted by Fara Kearnes on December 28, 2004 2:47 PM |

And are still asking why John Kerry lost the election, you can mull over the cultural and lifestyle differences separated Kerry from the average American. An article by John Ellis discusses 5 reasons why Kerry lost the election.

As for lifestyle, the author nailed it by pointing out, "Pick your poison: wind-surfing and windsurfing outfits, snow-boarding outfits, $8000 bicycles, the daughter's (see-through) dress at Cannes, Teresa, Nantucket." In short, it's a life of privilege few Americans can relate to. Even the Kennedys did a better job at trying to look average.

, Americans don't want a representative who has an eight-figure bank account, has a perfectly bleached smile, botoxed and tan-from-a-bottle orange skin, with a pound and a half of gel combed into his scalp and a shiny black Rolls Royce parked in the garage of one of his multi-million dollar summer houses. They didn't want a leader who says he sympathizes with the plight of the middle and lower class. What they want is a leader from the middle or lower class.

John Kerry tried to attract everyone by pretending to be everyone. Did voters see through the staged goose hunt? ("Can I get me a huntin' license here?" Nice diction, Yale man.) Of course they did. Same with his sports fan pretense. He misnamed Red Sox star players and mispronounced Lambeau Field. The "Lambert" Field gaff will be talked about in Wisconsin for years.

But Kerry didn't lose it all on his own. The Democratic Party did Kerry no favors by giving Michael Moore celebrity status at the Convention in Boston. Michael Moore, PiDiddy, billionaire George Soros and similar detractors were like anchors weighing Kerry down.
