Kerry's Fumble

Dan Collins sent me this one:

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 14 — Forget soccer moms and NASCAR dads. The most important demographic in these parts transcends gender and geography — it’s Green Bay Packers fans.

Both candidates are targeting them with the ferocity of a Brett Favre bullet, but only John F. Kerry has fumbled the name of the hallowed grounds on which the Packers play, the frozen tundra of Curly Lambeau Field.

At a campaign event last month, the Democratic presidential nominee called it Lambert Field — a slip of the tongue carried on television, in papers throughout the state and on ESPN’s Web site.


Of course, this isn’t the first time Kerry has gone seemingly out of his way to offend local sensibilities.
