Still Reaching

And the Republicans get even more desperate.

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Christine Iverson said the GOP is not going after the Heinz Co. but "will continue to point out John Kerry's hypocrisy when his record on the issues does not match his rhetoric."

One of these days, someone from the RNC is going to need to sit me down and explain to me how actions taken by a company in which John Kerry has no stake and no influence are somehow part of his "record on the issues." Neither Kerry nor his wife has ever had any control of the company. What the hell are they supposed to do if it outsources? And are Republicans going to now accuse Kerry of supporting Republican candidates? This is absolutely ridiculous.

And yes, it's very different from the Cheney/Halliburton connection. Cheney once ran the company, holds a financial interest in it, and his administration has thrown Halliburton massive amounts of business through no-bid contracts, not to mention overlooking the instances where Halliburton has failed to live up to its end of those contracts. None of those statements are true about Kerry and Heinz.

Unless Kerry has bought millions of dollars worth of ketchup that I don't know about.
