    [b]Teresa calls opponents 'scumbags'

    In her latest outburst against her political enemies, Teresa Heinz Kerry called her detractors "scumbags" during an interview with a Pittsburgh TV anchorwoman.

    Name-calling has become frequent behavior for the wife of Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.

    According to a report in the New Yorker, Kerry campaign advisers have struggled with Teresa's off-the-cuff remarks in the media.

    "There are these bizarre moments that make you shudder," a Kerry adviser told the magazine. "Like calling herself African-American to black audiences."

    Earlier this month, Heinz Kerry said voters who don't agree with her husbands health-care plans are "idiots."

    Writes the New Yorker's Judith Thurman:

    I doubt that she knows the literal meaning of "scumbag," but perhaps, after 40 years in America, nearly 13 of them as a political wife, observing how the flaws and contradictions of a personality as complex as hers are melted down for ammunition by the other side, she should have learned it. Close friends attribute her lapses of discretion to "naďveté." Heinz Kerry says that they are a form of resistance to enforced conformity. "I don't like to be told, for told's sake," how to behave, she says, "because I lived in a dictatorship for too long."

    Heinz Kerry was born and raised in Mozambique, which was ruled by the Fascist government of António Salazar while she lived there.

    The more this obnoxious woman talks, the better for Bush. Keep talking, lady!Kerry's marriage is a cash-infused joke, and but for Theresa marrying into the Heinz family, she's nothing but an ugly old tart. Heck, Kerry's marriage makes the Clintons look conventional by comparison.

    New Yorker Magazine Quotes Teresa Heinz Kerry Out Of Context

    POSTED: 8:05 pm EDT September 20, 2004
    UPDATED: 9:50 pm EDT September 20, 2004

    PITTSBURGH -- The new issue of the New Yorker magazine contains a detailed profile of Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry.

    One comment getting attention in the article is a claim that Heinz Kerry called her detractors "scumbags" during an interview last April with Channel 4 Action News anchor Sally Wiggin.

    A check of that tape shows that while Heinz Kerry did use the word, it came in the context of discussing what her son Chris called the "noble art of public service."

    "I believe there is a nobility in public service. I believe every citizen can be a public servant. And should be," said Heinz Kerry.

    Sally Wiggin asked, "Do you think some of the nobility has gone out of public service?"

    Heinz Kerry said, "Oh, there is a lot of scumbags everywhere. Not just in politics. In everything. There are a lot of immoral people everywhere."

    The author of the New Yorker article was allowed by Heinz Kerry to observe the original interview as it was taped.

    The magazine did contact Channel 4 Action News to confirm the quote, but the context in the final article gave different shading to the meaning of the remarks.

    If true the New Yorker should change the story or issue a correction...imagine that; the media taking sokeone out of context...and its' not even a conservative.

    Regardless...the question must be asked why is she using that word during an interview? Would she have the balls to say, "the french are scumbags"??

    Kerry's wife is annoying but again who cares? It might be refreshing to have someone who speaks her mind as opposed to the kowtowing and plastic smile of Laura. Everyone loved that Barbara Bush had some spunk.

    I think you would be comfortable in the middle ages. The people were very simple and without the capacity to understand complex issues, merely hated each other for little or no reason.

    Translation = you.

    I have hatred for those who start wars for no reason..who want to discriminate against a segment of the US population (gays)...who want to control women's choices, who flat out lie to the american people and who sends their soldiers to a hell on earth for absolutely no reason..

    If that makes me a hateful person than I hope I am the person with the Most Hate..

    Out of context?"Oh, butler, that idiot jackass husband, fresh from wasting my wealth, left a [i]scumbag[/i] on the bedroom rug. Pick it up, NOW!"

    If you're an imbecile, better to keep your mouth shut so no one knows, rather than open it and confirm as much for all to hear.

    A scumbag, rubber, or "Coney Island whitefish"-a prophylactic device used to hold semen ejaculate during sexual intercourse-is much more useful than old, dried-up douchebags who marry into rich families and proceed to waste such fortunes by their profligate stupidity, whilst making fools of themselves. Who is she kidding? If she hadn't hooked up with John Heinz, she'd be Bianca Jagger, and at least Bianca Jagger was hot sometime way back. Isn't making money anytime any AMerican has a cheeseburger enough for this odius whore?
