I'd heard about it...

Theresa Hines-Kerry telling a reporter to 'shove it', but I haven't been able to find it on any of my news sites, so I did a quick search to chase it down.

It seems that the reporter asked her about some comments she made and she went off on the guy. Not that I haven't wanted to take issue with the media before, but do we really want someone like this at a State dinner?

Here is the skinny:

Heinz Kerry's comment came Sunday after she told a group of voters, "We need to turn back some of the creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits that are coming into some of our politics."

As she was leaving, Colin McNickle, the Tribune-Review's editorial page editor, asked her what she had meant by, in his words, "un-American activity."

According to an exchange posted on the paper's Web site, she denied having said "activity" and also denied saying "un-American."

After stepping away and speaking briefly with Democratic organizers of the event, she returned and asked the reporter whether he worked for the Tribune-Review. He said he did.

"Understandable. You said something I didn't say, now shove it," she told him.

eMail this entry!

I can't find the story now since the latest stuff is all convention news, but there was more detail in something I read.

Apparently the reporter had repeatedly asked her the same question, and she'd repeatedly denied saying that stuff. So when the reporter kept badgering her, that's when the "shove it" came. Fair enough as far as I'm concerned.

we are protesting heinz products and not voting for kerry because his wife is not american(south african). Im a democrat 2nd reason because kerry made a comment of treasonous nature for vietnam. i feel sorry for the people who fought our nation and have to listen to him. just look at his recored, he voted against the gulf war when we had all the united nations voted for it when iraq took over kuwait. so people of democrats let us voted either for bush or nader and not for kerry.

Even Kerry has dual citizenship with France and claims that he can't denounce it. Never heard that one. Thought you could just fill in the paperwork. Anyone know?

It's amazing to me that a man running for President of the United States is keeping his wife out from in front of the cameras. Kinf of frightening that she might actually be first lady and speak to the leader of some country harshly simply because she misunderstands his statements. American could be in great danger since I think she's the one that actually runs John Kerry.

I find it amazing when comments are made about someone you do not personally know. It makes me wonder if your goal in life is to cause as much harm as possible to others.

When you see someone pitching a fit in the grocery aisle and screaming that they want a lawyer because the store stopped carrying their favorite brand of gum, you don't need to know the person personally to know they are a butthole.

Same here.

But it is okay for Cheney to tell Leahy to "F" himself in the Senate? Come on hipocrites. Also, to the person who said he would not want THK at a State dinner, a majority of State dinners are held in honor of foreign dignitaries. And to the person who is worried about voting for John Kerry because his wife is foreign born, what about Governor Schwarzenegger? Would you vote for him?

uhmm - there are a myriad of reasons to not vote for Kerry. This bit of a lack of restraint from his wife is only one of them. a very minor one at that.

Just received a fax stating that Theresa Hines Kerry has 56 companies abroad, none in the USA, and they pay no taxes! I do know for a fact that they made somewhere in the figure of 6.8 million last yr and they only pay 12.8% in income tax versus the fact most of us pay more! Oh yeah, I sure don't want these "snobs" in the White House.
