Places, Everyone. Places.

John Kerry opened his address to the NAACP on Thursday with a jab at President Bush who opted out of a speaking role in front of the group:

“Some people may have better things to do, but there’s no place that I’d rather be right now than right here in Philadelphia with the NAACP.”

All due respect to Kweisi Mfume and the rest of the group, but there’s no place he’d rather be? I’ve heard teenage boys less excited about the prospect of playing strip doubles with Kournikova and Sharapova.

Any chance that Edwards turned Kerry on to beer bonging a twelver of Diet Coke just before speeches?

Concentration is important!
