A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

John Kerry, friend to the little guy: The other day the Kerrys and Edwards stopped at a Wendy's fast food joint to celebrate the Edwards' anniversary.

Apparently, according to some news reports, Mrs. Heinz Kerry had to be enlightened by her husband about what exactly "chili" was (that's the meal, not the country). Well, it turns out that it was only an appetizer.

While Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry and his running mate, John Edwards, and their families were having a “lite” lunch at Wendy’s in the Town of Newburgh Friday, drumming up local support right after the national convention in Boston, their real lunches were waiting on their bus.

A member of the Kerry advance team called Nikola’s Restaurant at the Newburgh Yacht Club the night before and ordered 19 five-star lunches to go that would be picked up at noon Friday. Management at the restaurant, which is operated by CIA graduate chef Michael Dederick, was told the meals would be for the Kerry and Edwards families and actor Ben Affleck who was with them on the tour.

The gourmet meals to go included shrimp vindallo, grilled diver sea scallops, prosciutto, wrapped stuffed chicken, and steak salad. The meals came to about $200.

Well, it sounds better than Wendy's to me.

12:57 AM

And a bargain at about $10 each. The price seems awfully low for what they got.
Well there's more to the story, here.
Consider; if you're trying to prokect yourselkf as a military type, what better way to do that, in the mind of Democrat than stop at a fast-food place outside a base, where military types are going to be stationed... so you can set up a chance meeting for the shutterbugs to grab and put in the 'free ads' sometiems called 'news'?
It isn't that big of a base. It's pretty much shut down except for the NY 105th Air National Guard. You would have a hard time finding a presence. I doubt the Kerry campaign even knew there is anything around there. Search any of the military web sites, and see what you can find. Not much. In fact, the Wendy's is on the wrong side of I-84 and I-87 from the base.

Don't know if this will translate correctly, and you may have to zoom out, but Wendy's is in the upper righ t quardrant, and the base is in the lower right at the airport.


It was just on the way. I-90 out of Boston to I-84 to Scranton PA, to I-81 to Harrisburg. Newburgh is just a stop at the Hudson River crossing.
