Baby Talk

How do you know the primary season is over and the general election is well underway? When you’re reading interview quotes attributed to John Kerry. And the interview happened to be more than three decades ago. (There is even a rumor being spread that John Kerry’s first words as a baby were: taxes, lobbyists and Ted Kennedy.) Does it matter what a candidate said to a college newspaper during his youth? Maybe, but that could eclipse any hint of political aspirations I have left. I once spent a half-hour talking to a guy at the Daily Cal about the awesomeness of beer bonging. (Just added: You also know you’re in the big race when they pull out the picture of you within three rows of Jane Fonda.)

Concentration is important!
