    you seriously think the flight and the expenses and the hair cut came out of his own pocket?!!?!? isn't kerry supposedly saying he can relate to the "common man"...what common man flies his "hairdresser" cross country on a private jet for a haircut?

    They probably came out of his wive's pocket.

    Both candidates say they relate to the common man, every politician does, but none do.

    His wife is very rich. Personal decisions on how to spend money cannot be equated with the distribution of the budget of an entire country.

    I can't believe what a dumbass article that is.

    so, you guys are positive that the money did not come from campaign funds? then again, you guys also looked the other way as Clinton raped the nation for his own personal fulfillment.

    I would ask why you think it did come from campaign funds when the guy's already rich.

    I personally believe that Kerry is a moron, but this is the kind of silly non issue that Americans seem to fixate on during election years while ignoring real issues. It's no secret that Kerry's wife is loaded and that he has a access to her private jet. $1000 for a haircut is nothing to them. Unless there's some sort of proof that taxpayers are footing the bill, the story is only meant to stir class hostility. What's unusual is that is a Democrat on the receiving end for a change. Usually the "Hey look at the rich fatcat" strategy is used by Democrats against Republicans to perpetuate the accusation that the Republican party is the party of the rich white guy. No matter who uses it, it's idiotic and pointless. They're both from the same elite class.

    BTW, what do you think Bush does when he's on the campaign trail and needs a trim? Stops by the local Supercuts? :rolleyes:

    I can't imagine it takes an upmarket hair stylist to trim his highly adventurous side parting.

    Absolutely - if he would come out and admit hes rich and that he is not in touch with the "common man."

    Are you positive it did? With the resources we have access to, none of us could prove it either way.

    Don't play the Clinton card, I speak for myself, but I really don't give a damn about him and I don't hold him in high regards anyways. Past is the past, lets live what we have now.

    Yeah, not like President "Looky at my cowboy boots and jeans, I'm just a good ol' boy from Texas" Bush. :rolleyes:

    They're both loaded and they both try to downplay their wealth and connections to appeal to the working class.

    He lives on a ranch. What do you expect him wear, a suit? I've never seen him wear those things anywhere else but his ranch.

    Does the fact that he wears cowboy boots make him a good President? Does the fact that he's loaded make him a bad one?

    I don't get this bullshit. Anyone who takes it seriously and gives half a shit about it has already made up their mind who they're going to vote for anyway.

    Jesus H Christ, the boots and jeans weren't the fucking point. Holy shit, are you only capable of taking things at their most literal level? I'm surprised that you didn't do a google search trying to find the entire "Looky at my boots" quote. :rolleyes:

    The point is that just like Kerry, he tries to portray himself as a regular guy when in fact he's been rich and pampered his entire life.

    He dressed like that when he was Governor too. Hes just.. Texan. He does not pretend to relate to the common man, he just knows that cutting their taxes is good, so he does it and makes sure people know hes largely responsible for it. He has never specifically pretended to be a "common man" and he definately is not running on that basis.

    Oh, give me a break Shade. He was born in New Haven, went to Andover and Yale and still talks about pork rinds and Nascar. He's clearly pandering to the working class. And judging from your post, it's apparently working.
