IT'S NOT JUST HIS OWN WIFE EMASCULATING HIM:

Lynne Cheney Jokes About Kerry's Tan (AP, Sep 29, 2004)

Something about Sen. John Kerry's darker appearance has caught Lynne Cheney's eye.

During a campaign stop with her husband, a group of volunteers moved into the crowd with microphones for the question-and-answer period. Vice President Dick Cheney told supporters to look for the people with dark orange shirts.

When Cheney paused as if searching for the words to describe the shade of orange, Lynne Cheney said, "How about John Kerry's suntan?"

The remark drew a big laugh from the crowd and the vice president.

Perhaps not in the MSM but on the web the Kerry tan has caused Kerry to be an object of ridicule right before the important first debate. More competent campaigning by the Kerry group.

It's reminiscent of Gore at that 2000 debate with GWB, huffing and puffing like a queen, orange as an oompa loompa.

What Mrs. Cheney doesn't understand is that this new skin color is a Baldrick-style clever plan by Ketchup Boy. This is a last gasp for support from American war criminals (oops I meant Kerry's Band of Brothers). He will point out during the debate that, while Bush was in the Texas Air National Guard, he served in Vietnam, and relcutantly must be forced to acknowledge that he was exposed to Agent Orange, resulting in his rather remarkable hue.

You know you're in trouble when the vice president's wife starts beating up on you.
