Petty Kerry-bashing on the Grapevine Gossip minute

Reported by Chrish - September 21, 2005

Brit Hume stooped to belittling John Kerry for eating at a restaurant in Georgetown and sitting with his back to the TV while Bush's speech was being broadcast, on the Grapevine 9/20/05.

The graphic was of Bush in front of a church in NOLA, with Kerry's bust below and a prominent logo of Cafe Milano, who I'm sure are very grateful for the advertising.

Read Hume "No sooner had Bush finished his address from New Orleans last Thursday than MA Democratic Senator John Kerry issued a statement saying

'Americans want an end to politics as usual that leaves them dangerously and unforgivably unprepared, not speeches in the aftermath to explain away the inexcuseable.' (quoted by the Washington Times)

"But while the president was giving his address Kerry was having dinner at the fashionable Cafe Milano restaurant in Georgetown. Witnesses tell the Washington Times that Kerry sat with his back to the TV at the bar and he never turned around. What's more, he was still eating at the time his statement was sent out in his name."

Comment: Boy they're getting desperate for smears. The nerve of Kerry, eating and not watching Bush's painful delivery of another meaningless speech! And he had a (gasp) staff person release the statement without his actually being there to micromanage! But we know the real kicker is he wrote it before the Bush speech...which exhibits that Kerry thinks Bush's speeches are predictable, self-serving, and not worth watching. It also cracks me up that there were "witnesses" to the eating.

However what is not funny is that Hume/Fox didn't mention (at the time) that while people were drowning and being terrified by an unimaginably violent act of nature the so-called commander-in-chief ate... birthday cake. He wasn't watching the TV either, and people died.
