Kerry: "I can't believe I'm losing to this idiot."
mwbh: "And this would make you a..."

This piece in the London Times was so priceless I actually called my folks in Ohio, made them put on the speakerphone, and read the whole thing to them, much to their amusement. But why should they have all the fun? Read for yourself:

"John Kerry constantly squabbled with his difficult and hypochondriac wife, ran a campaign team riven by internal feuding, and repeatedly begged the Republican senator John McCain to become his running-mate... [Kerry] was so obsessed with getting advice from a multitude of rival advisers that one aide confiscated his mobile telephone. His wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, became such a moody distraction that in the closing weeks of the campaign another aide instructed her to stop whispering advice in his ear and back off... [Teresa] drove her Secret Service detail mad with her chronic lateness, constantly demanded attention, including her husband’s [and] even sent him off on errands, such as fetching bottles of water..."

My favorite is the family hiking trip. Thanks to the crack research team at Cruxnews for digging up this gem.

CNN reports that Kerry supporters and campaign workers are becoming despondent and going in for therapy, in shock over what might happen to this country.

According to most of us, nothing we can't handle. God bless America.

I believe a lot of the inside info on the election comes from this Newsweek story. Here is a summary, including this startling revelation:

The "Outlandish" McCain Offer. Kerry's courtship of Senator John McCain to be his running mate was longer-standing and more intense than previously reported. As far back as August 2003, Kerry had taken McCain to breakfast to sound him out to run on a unity ticket. McCain batted away the idea as not serious, but Kerry, after he wrapped up the nomination in March, went back after McCain a half-dozen more times. "To show just how sincere he was, he made an outlandish offer," Newsweek's Thomas reports. "If McCain said yes he would expand the role of vice president to include secretary of Defense and the overall control of foreign policy. McCain exclaimed, 'You're out of your mind. I don't even know if it's constitutional, and it certainly wouldn't sell.'" Kerry was thwarted and furious. "Why the f--- didn't he take it? After what the Bush people did to him...'"

And Kerry had the nerve to talk about Bush threatening the Constitution?!?
