By Ann Coulter:

Kerry was indisputably brave in Vietnam, and it's kind of cute
to see Democrats pretend to admire military service. Physical
courage, like chastity, is something liberals usually deride,
but are tickled when it accidentally manifests itself in one
of their own. One has to stand in awe of Kerry's military
service 33 years ago. Of course, that's where it ends,
including with Kerry -- inasmuch as, upon his return from war
in 1970, he promptly began trashing his fellow Vietnam vets by
calling them genocidal murderers.

But if Bush can't talk to Kerry about the horrors of war, then
Kerry sure can't talk to anyone about the plight of the middle

Kerry's life experience consists of living off other men's
money by marrying their wives and daughters. For over 30
years, Kerry's primary occupation has been stalking lonely
heiresses. Not to get back to his combat experience, but Kerry
sees a room full of wealthy widows as "a target-rich
environment." This is a guy whose experience dealing with tax
problems is based on spending his entire adult life being
supported by rich women.

What does a kept man know about taxes?

In 1970, Kerry married into the family of Julia Thorne -- a
family estimated to be worth about $300 million. She got
depressed, so he promptly left her and was soon seen catting
around with Hollywood starlets, mostly while the cad was still

(Apparently, JFK really was his mentor.) Thorne is well-bred
enough to say nothing ill of her Lothario ex-husband.

He is, after all, the father of her children -- a fact that
never seemed to constrain him. When Kerry was about to become
the latest Heinz family charity, he sought to have his
marriage to Thorne annulled, despite the fact that it had
produced two children. It seems his second meal ticket,
Teresa Heinz, wanted the first marriage annulled -- and Heinz
is worth more than $700 million.

Kerry claims he will stand up to powerful interests, but he
can't even stand up to his wife. Heinz made Kerry sign a
prenuptial agreement, presumably aware of how careless he is
with other people's property, such as other people's Vietnam
War medals, which Kerry threw on the ground during a 1971
anti-war demonstration.

At pains to make Kerry sound like a normal American, his
campaign has described how Kerry risked everything, mortgaging
his home in Boston to help pay for his presidential campaign.

Technically, Kerry took out a $6 million mortgage for "his
share" of "the family's home" -- which was bought with the
Heinz family fortune.

(Why should he spend his own money?)

I'm sure the average working stiff in Massachusetts can relate
to a guy who borrows $6 million against his house to pay for
TV ads.

Kerry's campaign has stoutly insisted that he will pay off the
mortgage himself, with no help from his rich wife. Let's see:
According to tax returns released by his campaign, in 2002,
Kerry's income was $144,091. But as The Washington Post
recently reported, even a $5 million mortgage paid back over
30 years at favorable interest rates would cost $30,389 a
month or $364,668 a year.

The Democrats' joy at nominating Kerry is perplexing. To be
sure, liberals take a peculiar, wrathful pleasure in
supporting pacifist military types. And Kerry's life story is
not without a certain feral aggression.

But if we're going to determine fitness for office based on
life experience, Kerry clearly has no experience dealing with
problems of typical Americans since he is a cad and a gigolo
living in the lap of other men's money.

Kerry is like some character in a Balzac novel, an adventurer
twirling the end of his mustache and preying on rich women.
This low-born poseur with his threadbare pseudo-Brahmin family
bought a political career with one rich woman's money, dumped
her, and made off with another heiress to enable him to run
for president.

If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts,
couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to
rich women for past 33 years?

Don't forget -- John Kerry is strong on defense:

He voted to kill the Bradley Fighting Vehicle.

He voted to kill the M-1 Abrams Tank.

He voted to kill every Aircraft carrier laid down from 1988.

He voted to kill the Aegis anti aircraft system.

He voted to kill the F-15 strike eagle.

He voted to kill the Block 60 F-16.

He voted to kill the P-3 Orion upgrade.

He voted to kill the B-1.

He voted to kill the B-2.

He voted to Kill the Patriot anti Missile system.

He voted to Kill the FA-18.

He voted to Kill the F117.

In short, he voted to kill every military appropriation for
the development and deployment of every weapons systems since
1988 to include the battle armor for our troops. With Kerry as
president our Army will be made up of naked men running around
with sticks and clubs!

He also voted to kill all anti terrorism activities of every
agency of the US Government and to cut the funding of the FBI
by 60%, to cut the funding for the CIA by 80%, and cut the
funding for the NSA by 80%.

But then he voted to increase OUR funding for U.N operations
by 800%!!!
