John Kerry Speech Error Lambeu Field

flubs. By Mike Pesca Qualified to be the First Fan? Football Fans for Truth is probably the only 527 committee that traces its origins to a fantasy football draft. In the conference room of a Washington, D.C., law firm, team owners Dino Panagopoulos and Jeff Larroca were laughing at how John Kerry called the Green Bay Packers' home stadium Lambert Field rather than Lambeau Field. Someone else remembered that Kerry continued to use a line about the greatness of http://s64183.rg.ro/d1-k Ohio State football after crossing into Michigan. In Michigan, people wear T-shirts that say, "Oh how I hate Ohio State." Mike Pesca Mike Pesca is the host of the Slate daily podcast The Gist. He also contributes reports and commentary to NPR. As soon as Panagopoulos and Larroca filled out the proper IRS forms, named the group, and put up a http://www.slate.com/articles/sports/sports_nut/2004/09/fumble_on_the_kerry.html Web site, kindred spirits began e-mailing more evidence. Kerry, it turned out, once named Eddie Yost as his favorite Red Sox player. Yost never played for the Red Sox. Kerry thought there was a current member of the Red Sox named Manny Ortez. Not to mention that Kerry flinched like a coward while catching a football. Advertisement In the words of Panagopoulos, these gaffes prove that John Kerry is "someone who's trying to be all things to all people, and so he's trying to act like he knows some of these things." When Kerry says "Lambert Field," he's advertising his ignorance while putting on the front of being a real fan. At least that's what the president and vice president suggested on their own trips to Wisconsin. "I thought after John Kerry's visit here I'd visit Lambert Field," said Dick Cheney, who then paused a bit for laughs. "The next thing is he'll be convinced Vince Lombardi is a foreign leader." The president's Lambert field joke was a more oblique critique of the wine-and-cheese liberal. "And I understand my opponent

Subscribe to feed Share on Facebook Share on Twitter ShareEmail Print After President Bush's terrific speech at the Republican National Convention, John F. Kerry decided he wasn't the type to take a piece of political shrapnel in the rear without fighting back. And so he rose to his feet, took a hit of botox and stepped to the microphone. "I have five words for Americans," he boomed imperiously. "This is your wake up call!" Except that this was six words. Or, as columnist Mark Steyn put it, "It's all very nuanced, according to whether you hyphenate the &

Wisconsin Sports Report 12:00 AM, Oct 11, 2004 | The Weekly Standard Sorry, you've reached the limit on the articles you can view. Wisconsin Sports Report During an already semi-legendary August 25 campaign appearance in Green Bay (see "The Battle for Wisconsin" by Stephen F. Hayes, Sept. 6), John Kerry--in full "I'm a regular-guy sports fan, just like you" mode--mentioned something about the hometown Packers football team and its stadium, Lambeau Field. Only Kerry called the place "Lambert Field." And he's been running 8 to 10 points behind President Bush in every Wisconsin preference poll since. Which is no small thing. Gore took the state four years ago. There are 10 electoral votes at issue, and Kerry probably can't afford to lose them.
