Why is Kerry a shill for the capitalist classes?
Why was Kerry vacationing on Nantucket, of all places?
To go to this island retreat of the rich sent all the wrong messages to undecided voters, and it discourages his hard core.
Like his ski trip to Sun Valley, Idaho after the primaries, the junket to Nantucket, where Kerry owns a home, reinforces the image of Kerry as a member of the upper class. Since Bush traffics on his own synthetic image as a regular guy, Kerry's indifference to looking hoity-toity is foolish.
What's more, there are millions of Democrats who are so desperate to get Bush out of office that they don't want Kerry to waste a single minute.
