When John Kerry looked deeply, blinkingly into the camera's eye during Friday's debate, this is what I saw.
"Absolutely. Yes. Right into the camera. Yes. I am not going to raise taxes. "
Here he was personalizing stem cell research.
"I was at the Louvre with Mona Lisa the other day in Paris, who's suffering from Bell's Palsy, and she wants us to do stem cell, embryonic stem cell."
Of all the mirth we could make from the comedy material provided by John Kerry, this is admittedly lowbrow and tacky, kind of like Kerry surveying an audience of strangers in St. Louis and concluding none was capable of earning $200,000 per year.
