Why YT likes Tere$a Heinz Kerry

It's not for her spiffy Red White and Kerry neck scarves; not because she speaks more than a handful of languages; not because she's going to be the next First Lady; I like her because she calls hypocritical their opponents who raise questions about the Kerry's wealth and that of Senator John Edwards:
Those very same people never criticized my late husband for his money or his wealth - in fact, they used it," said Mrs. Heinz Kerry, who inherited an estate estimated at $500 million to $1 billion from her first husband, Senator H. John Heinz III, a Pennsylvania Republican who was killed in a plane crash. "His money was just dandy."

"I find it un-American for people to criticize someone and say they're not deserved for any position, whether because they have too much or too little or because they're black or they're white."

I couldn't agree more.

I appreciate this support from ole Tereez. It would've been even better if she'd mentioned me by name, of course.

Or put that name on a check.

Seriously, though, it's hard to take anyone seriously when they're talking about money and all they've done is inherit it. We'll never get the money out of politics until we get the people with money out of politics. At least Bill Clinton had the basic decency to be broke and homeless the whole time he was President.

Edwards didn't inherit a dime. He earned his money the old-fashioned way -- sticking it to corporate America. Even you have to admire that!

Yeah. And notice how Edwards doesn't wear a red-white-and-blue scarf and jet all around the country talking about his dough. Edwards does prove one thing however: It is still possible in America for the impoverished son of a mill worker to grow up and get rich and buy a Senate seat and then vote to send the less resourceful sons of mill workers off to Eye-Wreck to get their arms and legs and heads "blowed off."

It gives me a real lump in my throat and makes me believe in Uhmurka all over again.
