How Much Did Bush's Dinner Cost on Saturday?

It's very important that voters know exactly how much John Kerry pays for scallops. This information will have a very significant effect on who I vote for. I have always stood by the principle that I will never vote for a man who spends more than $35 on scallops in a restaurant. So I must thank Jodi Wilgoren for her valuable service to this country. From her breathtaking account of John Kerry's weekend, we discover:

"The wind died," Mr. Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, told reporters as he cruised by on the 32-foot Contender, a gentleman's fishing vessel said to cost about $150,000.

Mr. Kerry and his family did dine out Saturday night at the Pearl, where sautéed yuzu-dusted day boat sea scallops go for $36, with his fellow senator from Massachusetts, Edward M. Kennedy, his wife, Vicki, and her parents. But on Sunday afternoon, he canceled a beachside brunch at one of the island's most expensive restaurants, with aides explaining that his two adult daughters preferred a quiet meal at home...

Mr. Kerry made a brief stop on Sunday afternoon to buy two $8 tubes for his Serotta road bike. "It's one of the reasons they come here."...

Mr. Kerry has been coming here regularly since at least 1995, when he married the ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz at the three-story, five-bedroom house she owns on Brant Point, where the clothing designer Tommy Hilfiger also has a home and H. Wayne Huizenga, the owner of the Miami Dolphins, recently sold one. Valued at $9 million in 1995, the house...

Though some Democrats were concerned about the image of their wealthy candidate frolicking among the fabulously wealthy here on an island where the average home sells for $1.4 million, Mr. Kerry insisted not only on coming, but also on trying to kite-surf, a dangerous combination of waterskiing and parasailing with basic equipment costing about $2,500.

Why must the New York Times be so damn liberal?

Why can't it publish more nonsense stories of no journalistic value that serve only to reinforce negative Republican charicatures of John Kerry? Only running two or three a week just is not fair to Bush.

This is an RNC press release, not a news story.
