What a palooka.

'John Kerry has repeatedly called for increasing taxes on the "wealthy" so the affluent "pay their fair share" for the "common good." Ironically, John and Theresa Heinz Kerry, who comprise one the richest families in the world, pay relatively little income tax.

Last year, John Kerry and his wife paid just 12% of their combined income in income taxes, despite their assertion that the rich should contribute increased amounts to government coffers. In contrast, President and Mrs. Bush, who had a substantially lower income than the Kerry's, paid over 28% in taxes.'

Kerry chose to not pay several voluntary taxes that he claims to support.

The SUV analogy isn't an analogy... It's an anecdote from the campaign. I guess you missed it... Must have something to do with the unbiased MSM.

Speaking to union employees in Detroit, Kerry waxed eloquent about his love of SUVs and the fact that he drives one. Speaking to greenies (I forget where) several days later, Kerry said SUVs should be outlawed. At a third stop, someone asked Kerry to reconcile the statements; Kerry stated that he didn't own the SUV, his family did.

Suspiciously half baked. Like, say, a silver star with combat 'V'?

Not that this particular anecdote or any similar contradictions has anything to do with his not taking questions from reporters for over a month. I'm sure he's just too darn busy.

At a third stop, someone asked Kerry to reconcile the statements; Kerry stated that he still isn't Bush. "Look at me, I'm not Bush!"
