Why Do His Advisers Continue To Allow Him To Be Photographed This Way?
(Thanks to Power Line for this photo.)
Here's what I don't understand: All the campaign consultants and PR people I know say it is foolish for Kerry to be photographed again and again like this. He looks like a doofus. On top of that, Kerry has made repeated goofy statements about sports: Calling Lambeau Field "Lambert Field," calling Michigan the home of "Buckeye football," and saying his favorite Red Sox player was Eddie Yost, who never played for the Sox. It looks like he's trying too hard to look macho. (Further evidence of that: The goose-hunting trip with 10 days left in the campaign, when he presumably had more important things to do.)
I have read that Kerry does not take advice well. Maybe that helps explain why he keeps playing catch on the tarmac.
Or maybe he really is just a doofus.
