Teresa Unscripted

Things didn't go so well for Mrs. Kerry at the Pennsylvania welcoming party:

Teresa Heinz Kerry urged her home-state delegates to the Democratic National Convention to restore a more civil tone to American politics, then minutes later told a newspaperman to "shove it."

There's a video clip of her saying this to the reporter if you click through the link.

This came on the same night her husband was booed throwing out a ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park. George Stephanopoulos was right on target in his interview with the ESPN crew later in the game: the Kerry campaign shouldn't have done that since politicians appearing at baseball games are always booed, and that sets a bad tone for the start of the convention (how much play do you think the booing is getting on Fox News?).
