The Candid, Refreshing Terezzza: My Husband is Unqualified for the Presidency

Couldn't agree more, Terezzzza:

WOULD-BE first lady Teresa Heinz Kerry reinforced her reputation for telling it like it is yesterday by admitting her husband was not qualified for the Oval Office.

"I think nobody is truly qualified to be president of the United States," she said in an interview with Reader's Digest.

"I mean, are you qualified to run the world ... not run it, but have that influence? No, nobody is."

It was another example of the plain speaking that has become her trademark, and a possible liability for John Kerry's campaign.

She did not elaborate on her comments, leaving Reader's Digest to bail out her husband by reporting that the "message she left hanging in the air" was "Vote for John. He's less poorly qualified than the other guy."

I would note that while Terezzza knows her gigolo husband fairly well, she's never (or barely) met Bush. Ergo, we should put more stock in her assessment of John Forbes Kerry's qualifications than his opponent's.

I'll just keep saying it: Terezzza's vaunted "candor" is simply a direct function of her billion-dollar inheretance. She's an idle-rich golddigger heiress who landed herself a whale (John Heinz, not John Forbes Kerry). She's "candid" because she has enough money to afford having little sense, tact, or regard for others.

I will note that George W. Bush also exhibited the natual effects of wealth and breeding in 2000. He was obviously confident -- perhaps overconfident, verging on cocky -- and he had the natural sense of command and entitlement that's hard to avoid when you were born one of life's lottery-winners.

The media did not, however, portray these things as a plus. They portrayed these traits as being the typical ones of a spoiled rich kid.

But Terezzza? The woman who married into at least 100x George Bush's fortune?

Why, she's candid. She's refreshing. She's got real personality. She's unafraid to speak the truth, at least as it seems to her.

I heard a lot about rich kids and a sense of entitlement and plutocratic arrogance in 2000. I hear so very little about those things now.

I wonder why.
