Hope and Change in the culture wars


The would-be First Lady of the 2004 election cycle was often the target of criticism for her off-the-cuff remarks on the campaign trail, and for her support of left wing advocacy groups. So much so, in fact, that The H.J. Heinz Co. sent out 50 letters to news organizations to “squash rumors circulating on the Internet and radio talk shows that it is involved with Mr. Kerry’s campaign.” [link]

In 2004, she changed her name from Teresa Heinz to Teresa Heinz Kerry during the campaign. After Kerry’s defeat, she changed her name back to Teresa Heinz, and has quietly faded back into affluent obscurity

The video below is currently being aired overseas. Is this agenda-driven advocacy or is it just clever marketing?

That it is not being run in the U.S. suggests the former. Of course, in this election cycle, I can’t imagine the DNC would knowingly allow the carefully manicured image of their candidate to be pulled into the culture wars with such a provocative commercial sponsored, at least indirectly, by the spouse of their former standard-bearer.

Despite the recent ruling by the California Supreme Court, and the resulting flood of homosexual marriages, the Religious Right has been largely silent in this election cycle. I suspect the Dems would just as soon leave a sleeping giant alone.

  1. I didn’t see that coming even after I read the article…

  2. Pink Pansy Mayors…

    Media craving CodePink has a list of U.S. mayors that have signed on to their Mayors For Peace Campaign, which is nothing but a group of leftist mayors with a ……

  3. It didn’t take them long to yank that vid.

  4. You really should have a warning sign or something like it before innocent bystanders play that. I get physically sick to my stomach. The Religious Right are NOT remaining silent. We just know where our voice will be heard the loudest. ;)

  5. A New Post…

    Remember when I informed you that ‘my’ Soldier was home? Then I told you that he emailed me to tell me he would have a post up soon? Well, it’s here, and it was worth waiting for!…
