Cars, taxes, mansions: Pals share a special bond

It's a terrible spectacle when the Beautiful People turn on one another like rabid pit bulls.

But now we're told that it really doesn't matter that the widow Heinz slammed Ted Kennedy big-time, calling him a ``perfect bastard'' in a ``putrid'' party.

Calling Kennedy a fat - er, perfect - bastard is ``water under the bridge,'' said a Heinz flack in a particularly unfortunate turn of phrase. The attack doesn't matter, the minion claimed, because it happened 30 years ago.

Just like it doesn't matter that Ted Kennedy drowned Mary Jo Kopechne, because that happened 35 years ago.

But when you ask them why anybody is supposed to vote for John Kerry [related, bio], they'll tell you it's because he served in Vietnam . . . 37 years ago.

Still, it's good that Ted and Teresa - two poster children for the debilitating, soul-corroding effects of unearned wealth - were able to patch it up at the FleetCenter last evening.

After all, Teddy and Liveshot Kerry have so much in common, and not just their identical voting records either.

Consider: Teddy bought a Chrysler LeBaron convertible. John then bought a Chrysler LeBaron convertible.

Teddy invented a baseball player named ``Sammy Sou-za.'' John then saluted an imaginary slugger named ``Manny Ortez.''

Both enjoy tooling around in GM automobiles that don't belong to them. John got his Buick on the arm from a shady car dealer on the Lynnway named Bob Brest. Ted got his Oldsmobile from Rose and then used it to - well, you know the rest of that story.

Yep, when need be Carr can certainly deliver a hard right to the gut. I liked the slam about unearned wealth. With the poodle and the drunk infesting politics there, I'm sure Carr will have writing material for the next 20 years.

...'There is, however, one difference between these two alleged great friends. For his second wife, Ted married a younger woman. John Kerry married an older woman, who is now 65, for reasons that even a Kucinich delegate could figure out. Whatever else you can say about Kerry, he's not a stupid bastard'

I hadn't heard about the Rose Kennedy Fl. resident scam. That fat POS needs to be reminded of that everytime he spouts off about Americans not paying enough taxes.
