I've Got to Be A Macho Man

Everybody, sing along:

Clad in camouflage clothing, a 12-gauge double-barreled shotgun under his arm, Senator John Kerry and three fellow hunters emerged from an eastern Ohio cornfield Thursday morning with four dead geese and an image his aides hope will help shore up his macho bona fides among rural voters.

You really do have to aprpeciate the nuanced approach to winning over the rubes, dont you?

"Everybody got one, everybody got one," said Mr. Kerry, his hand stained with goose blood, though he was the only member of the hunting party not carrying a carcass.

No Blood for Photo-Ops!

An aide said later that two of the birds would soon be sent back to Mr. Kerry for consumption.

Later this week another aide says, ...

"Mr. Kerry, your goose is cooked."
