I Wish to Convey to You My Passion in This Area

Sympathetic lurch of nausea this morning as I listened to John Kerry on NPR (Real or Windows Media) earnestly telling reporters "I am feisty." Yeesh. The point, John, is that you don't say things like that, you show it. Saying "I am feisty" is like acting out every Chevy Chase sex scene in the "Family Vacation" movies.

Pretty clear that NPR wants to write the obit on Kerry's campaign, and went for the stake through the heart with a moment involving Kerry spelling his last name out to a New Hampshire restaurant owner who's never heard of him.
