If anyone saw this endorsement coming, they’re probably very, very troubled:
Former New Hampshire Sen. Bob Smith, a conservative Republican who once ran for president as an independent, is endorsing John Kerry for president.
Smith, in a letter released Thursday by the Kerry campaign, praised his former colleague as a Democrat “who crossed the aisle to forge a bipartisan coalition in the Senate to balance the federal budget.”
Bob Smith, of course, is my former Senator. When he wasn’t worrying about the horrific effect that elephants would have on our nation, he was fighting against national volunteer and arts programs. So, basically, he goes out of his way to stop community service and the fine arts. Great guy. I don’t know why Kerry thinks this is a good thing.
