Memo to Rachelle G. Cohen

Rachelle G. Cohen is “editor of the editorial pages” of the right wing biased Boston Herald. In an OP/ED today she compares John Kerry’s recent speech at Brown University to Donna Brazile’s recent OP/ED in the Washington Post.

I’m not sure what, other than the fact that Brazile’s hometown is New Orleans, could have motivated her to to say, “on Thursday night, after watching him speak from the heart, I could not have been prouder of the president.” Quite frankly, I fear Brazile must be suffering from a momentary lapse of reason, because truly, I can not imagine that she bought what Bush was saying as something even close to “from the heart.” Regardless of her lapse of reason, Brazile has a vested interest in New Orleans, thus she offered to roll up her sleeves and get to work with the President.

Now, back to Rachelle C. Cohen, who infers that Kerry is whining and carping rather than rolling up his sleeves to help the devastated Gulf Coast. Evidently Ms. Cohen missed the story the Boston Herald ran last week about Kerry taking donations to Louisiana on September 12.

It’s also evident that Ms. Cohen doesn’t have a clue about the bill that the Senate passed last week to aid Katrina victims and Small Business owners in the area, which was authored by John Kerry.

Ms. Cohen’s OP/Ed comes across as the purely biased spin that it is, it’s evident that she’s too busy cooing over the miserable failure in the White House to know what’s really going on.

Cohen was right where she said “It’s hard to imagine that Kerry and Brazile heard the same Bush speech. Actually it’s hard to imagine these two Democrats are living on the same planet.” I couldn’t agree more. For when it comes to what Ms. Brazile said about being proud of the president, she was not speaking for this Democrat, and obviously she wasn’t speaking for John Kerry, either.

We all know there is work to be down in the Gulf Coast, but honestly, take off the blinders Rachelle C. Cohen, nothing George W. Bush has down so far leads most of this nation to believe that he is capable of doing that work.

    Donna B. is nothing if not political, with strange maneuverings for a return to prominence again last season. She is always a puzzle.

  2. Indie Liberal says:

    These was a story Donna was mad that Kerry didn’t come to her for strategy during the campaign, as well as not hiring African-Americans as part of the campaign staff early on.

    I heard that. What pissed me off the most about this OP/ED was the inference made that Kerry has done nothing down there to help. Brazile is entitled to thinking that Bush “spoke from the heart” that’s her opinion. Not mine.

    Nothing ever happened with LTEs to the Herald. I know it’s a long-standing hatred of Kerry for reasons I still don’t understand, and Boston certainly is traditional. Something about being Irish, or Beacn Hill, or jealous, or the paper as contrary, but it’s dishonest and hurtful.
