A reminder of what a creep John Kerry is

Just in case you'd forgotten how off-putting John Kerry can be and why the American people rejected him four years ago, he pops up and reminds us. Allahpundit links to this comment from him.
Kerry tried to relay to the audience what it is like to face the press corps' inquiries.

"I don't know if any of you know what it's like. I do, obviously," he said. "I've been asked all of those brilliant questions that were repeated this year."

"Barack got asked the famous boxers or briefs question," Kerry went on. "I was tempted to say commando."

The senator said Obama successfully parried that question but that John McCain, the GOP nominee, had some problems.

"Then they asked McCain and McCain said, ‘Depends,'" Kerry said to lots of laughter from the crowd.
Note the arrogance in the first part as he reminds people that he has answered all these questions before Barack Obama ever decided to run for president. He plays up his whole "reporting for duty"-type shtick by saying that his underwear is Commando. Ha ha.

Then he slips in the snide and tasteless slap at John McCain's age. Oh, a Depends joke. Real humor there. Age jokes about McCain - like we haven't heard those every day this campaign. Making an incontinence joke about a colleague that he once wanted to be his running mate is both tasteless and classless.

That's John Kerry for you.
