Just another Joe...er...John

So John Kerry cracks a joke:
Kerry notes that he has been traveling with Affleck and Edwards and that Edwards was once named the nation's sexiest politician by People magazine. "I feel like that SAT question: Which one of these is different?"

Hmmmm, I'm thinking that it would connect better if he had used the example of Sesame Street. But he connects better with people who identify with that punchline than with a Sesame Street punchline, or NASCAR, or just about anything blue-collar.

Funny thing is, for all the blue-collar folk in his party, his party is run by people disdainful of those same blue-collar folks.
