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.

Most politcians 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 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 scumbag 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?
