Kerry ’08

It can’t be good for John Kerry‘s presidential, er, hopes that the mere sound of his name gets a laugh here in the Democratic heartland.

So, when a member of the Downtown Independent Democrats challenged Anthony last night on his vote to authorize the Iraq war, the candidate played the Kerry card.

“If I knew then what I know now, would I have voted [to go to war]?” he repeated. “John Kerry, listen to this: Of course not.”
