Tour de French-Looking Senator From Massachussetts, Who By the Way Served in Vietnam

John F. Kerry never falls down. Well, almost never:

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry took a spill from his bicycle while riding Sunday afternoon but was not injured, a campaign official said. Kerry was riding with Secret Service agents through Concord, about 18 miles north of Boston, when his bike hit a patch of sand and he fell, campaign officials said. "He's fine. They took the bike into the bike shop and he went home," said campaign spokesman Michael Meehan. Kerry was in Massachusetts -- he has a home in Boston -- enjoying a break from the campaign trail. It was not immediately clear on what road in Concord he was biking. Kerry, 60, rides his bicycle as often as he can and sometimes brings it with him on the campaign plane.

Man of the people, he is. But damn, now he's dressing like a daisy zipper pull.


DOWNDATE: I "liberated" the picture from the Drudge Report. My bad for not attributing appropriately earlier.

*They* took the bike into the bike shop and *he* went home -- ??

How come I can't get this help when I fall off my bicycle?
