    My mistake, the closest Walmart is 8.05 miles from Boston, not very far from the water.

    Not a bad scheme Senator Kerry. Hypocritical absolutely. But not a bad scheme. And it's not complicated either.

    No it isn't. Still doesn't change the fact that Kerry is a hypocritical ass, but kudos on finding the loophole. Especially the travel time from Boston to RI isn't that long at all. Helps RI is a small state too.

    I would have done the same thing as kerry and I'm fairly liberal too according to most. But then again I'm not politician and do not have any aspirations of holding political office. I guess certain things go with the territory.

    What makes this esp. ironic is that he gave a speech in the Senate supporting a tax increase bill saying he didn't pay enough in taxes.

    If it was someone I knew, I might say "smart move" but this is someone who votes for higher taxes then manages to weasle out of them. Oh well, there are lots of Dems who outright cheat on their taxes.

    But thanks for assigning a bunch of opinions to me. It's so much easier when you just tell me what I think.

    Isabel - Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage - was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine.
