    Kerry Finally WIns An Election

    From Fox News.

    Sen. John Kerry’s public profile and prosecutorial past didn’t spare him from performing that most mundane of civic responsibilities — jury duty.

    Kerry was not only chosen this week to sit on a jury in Suffolk Superior Court, but also was elected foreman.

    It’s a good thing that he was elected foreman because there was a rumor (not yet verified) that Kerry lined up lawyers to demand recounts and the DNC was prepared to claim that Kerry was cheated….

      Welcome back Dave!

      First again! Be afraid, Hellbelly.

    3. Bitterlaw says:

      Damn!

    4. Bitterlaw says:

      Although there were only 12 people on the jury, Kerry received 23 votes.

    5. jones says:

      Sorry Bitterlaw, but tell PW I don’t count.

    6. hellbelly says:

      “Kerry voted for conviction on the first ballot….voted to acquit on the second ballot….voted to blame Karl Rove on on the third….and ended up suggesting that somehow Halliburton was the root cause of the crime….Theresa Heinz Kerry was heard to mutter ‘Jury Duty? How Dreadfully Common!'”

    7. Bitterlaw says:

      Kerry later stated, “I actually did vote to acquit him before I voted to convict. The prosecutor misled me but knowing what I know now, I still would have voted to convict as long as the judge didn’t use that vote to impose a sentence.”

    8. McCain says:

      Hey, is this the Ted Kennedy trial?

    9. GO Duke!!! says:

      Too funny!

    10. Will says:

      Kerry got 23 votes out of 12? Was this jury in Wisconsin?

    11. Bitterlaw says:

      Will – I don’t know if Boston is as corrupt as other Dem strongholds. In Philadelphia, he would have gotten 46 votes out of 12. Math doesn’t mean much here. Until they installed videocameras on buses, it used to be that if a bus was in an accident, 125 people would sue – even though the bus only could hold 55.

      Guys,
      Kerry served on a civil trial.:)

    13. jones says:

      The jury found the defendant guilty, but awarded no damages! One can not make this stuff up.

      At least now he can get back to deer hunting.

    14. Bitterlaw says:

      That is a legitimate award. You can find that somebody is negligent but that the negligence didn’t cause injuries. I can’t stand Kerry, but the award is not uncommon.

    15. jones says:

      In this context it is funny. In any other context it would not be.

    16. Richard G says:

      Bitterlaw, let me assure you. MA is every bit as corrupt as any other state. We have the strongest Dem political machine in the country.

      In all fairness, though, Kerry should not be tainted as a perpetual loser. Prior to 2004, he only lost one election, and won 3 very hard-fought elections/re-elections to the Senate, including 1996, where he handily dispatched a very popular governor. Even in 2004, it’s amazing that someone with such extreme liberal views as Kerry managed to come as close as he did. Look at how well he did, compared to Dukakis or Mondale, the to recent candidates most ideologically similar to Kerry.

      RichardG,
      He won 3 elections in Massachusetts.:)
      That’s like giving President Bush for having won the gubernatorial elections in Texas. Yes, Bush and Kerry defeated popular candidates, but the geographical issue diminishes the impressiveness of their victories a great deal.
      As for how “close” Kerry came, close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades.:)
