Angst in the Kerry Bunker #2

As mentioned yesterday, the rumors of a big shakeup in the Kerry Bunker are apparently true. They've decided to bring everyone's favorite porcine spinner, Joltin' Joe Lockhart, on board. Woohoo! That'll do it!

Some comments from Mickey Kaus:
"Sources say major changes could come at the campaign's highest level." That's the juiciest sentence in CNN's Kerry Shake-Up story. Not much else there, though. Except this:
Several campaign officials and advisers say they recognize the need to have an "adult" traveling with the candidate -- as one put it, "someone who can tell him to shut up ..."
The staff's fault, again!
You just can't get good help anymore! And from Kenneth Bazinet in the NY Daily News:
Sen. John Kerry is angry at the way his campaign has botched the attacks from the Swift boat veterans and has ordered a staff shakeup that will put former Clinton aides in top positions.

"The candidate is furious," a longtime senior Kerry adviser told the Daily News. "He knows the campaign was wrong. He wanted to go after the Swift boat attacks, but his top aides said no."
Bwahaha! Lurch doesn't fall down - those SOB's tripped him. I guess it's time for Lurch to start ordering attacks by nonexistent armies on both the Western and Eastern fronts. And wait a sec - it might all be due to the VRWC! Maybe it's time for a purge of traitors in the bunker!
