After Staging Photo-Op 'Hunt,' Kerry Refuses to Carry His Own Bird
Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said he bagged a goose on his Poland, Ohio swing state hunting trip Thursday, but his real target was the voters who may harbor doubts about him.
Kerry returned after a two hour hunting trip wearing a camouflage jacket and carrying a 12 gauge shotgun, but someone else carried the bird that he had shot.
'Im too lazy', Kerry joked. 'I'm still giddy over the Red Sox. It was hard to focus.'
Although he claims to be an avid hunter, Kerry has never joined the 315 member Congressional Sportmans Caucus.
John Kerry, [however] has a 100 percent rating from the radical animal rights group like PETA and the Fund for Animals.

the bird is a campaign prop. he bought it earlier that morning at the local butcher shop.
And nobody asked him if he intended to eat the bird.
He's a fun killer not a true sportsman.
"It was hard to focus."
This is what someone carrying a loaded 12 gauge ought to be saying???
Sounds a bit irresponsible to me.
He's too lazy to carry his own bird but he can get out there and windsurf? I don't think so.
Im sure Mama T is grilling them right now for breakfast...snicker..or at least her chef is!
Also the fact that a man who wants the nuclear football can be distracted by a game. He really won't be able to focus when an intern's over while he's on the phone with a Congressman.
Just like Klinton's bible.
Do you not need to apply for a hunting license in Ohio?
HEY JOHN IF YOUR A SPORTSMAN LETS SEE YOU CLEAN THAT BIRD!
Anyone who has EVER shot a goose would never want or expect someone else to carry it out. What an absolute sham! Once again Kerry tries to pretend to be a hunter and falls flat on his face! I wonder if he used steel shot? I wonder if he had only three in the chamber? What a joke!
"But it was all bloody and yucky!"
"And nobody asked him if he intended to eat the bird."
Ha! No one asked him if he intended to PLUCK AND CLEAN the bird, either! (been there, done that...believe it or not!)
He made Elmer Fudd look good.
This is such unbelievable BS..
The @ss hole was talking about how he was for the yankees when they were up three games to zero. Now he's giddy about the red sox and can't focus.
Give me a break...
Exactly what is Kerry going to do with these dead birds...clean and eat?.....hunters kill for food...he's killing animals for a photo-op.
Kerry did apply for an Ohio hunting licence last week, and hedged on his eye color..
This numbnuts has had that problem most of his life.
This has to be one of the silliest, most pathetically "wanna-be" campaign stunts I've ever seen. He should go back to kissing babies. Except they'd probably bite him.
