"I'd like to say a few words about my good friend Tom Menino, the mayor of this great city. Mayor, all Democrats owe you a debt of gratitude for your tireless efforts in shaking down everyone in town to raise money for this fabulous shindig. People will say it was all for nothing, that nothing is really taking place here, and frankly, they're right.
But just because I can't accept that thing I can't accept here in my hometown, just because there's a traffic jam outside from Lowell to the Sagamore Bridge, just because you're being picketed by dozens of unions without contracts, doesn't mean that we haven't accomplished a great thing together.
Thank you, mayor, for this wonderful showcase for my campaign's stunning indecision and ineptitude. Teresa and I will never forget it."
Way to go, Adrian. Continuing that thread, is it possible that this series of blunders shows that there is a MOLE in the Kerry campaign? How else can you explain this ham-handedness? Is Shrum a mole?
