John Kerry Has a Sense of Humor


Former 2004 presidential candidate and current Senator John Kerry (D-MA) actually does have a sense of humor and decent comedic timing, at least that's what a recent interview with Politico demonstrates. A certain teaching assistant of mine interned for the Senator and confirms that Kerry is witty and treats his people well. If this self-deprecating side of Kerry had come out during the 2004 election, it might have gotten him enough votes in Ohio to make him the 44th president of the United States.

Some selected goodies from Politico:


Q: What do you know now that you wish someone had told you 10 years ago? A: How to give shorter speeches.

Q: What is your favorite body part (on yourself) and why? A: My face has been compared to New Hampshire’s “Old Man in the Mountain” (before it fell), and I’ve been called Lurch from “The Addams Family,” so there’s not a lot to choose from, but I’d have to go with my better-than-Rod-Blagojevich hair.

p.s. the Senator is right--the Lurch resemblence is uncanny.

Kerry is better looking then Lurch, but I never thought Lurch was actually that bad looking either. Hey he wore a suit and always appeared to be a gentleman.

Anon--hysterical. If you have to look like someone from the Addams family it might as well be Lurch...
