This in from the NY Daily News...
So there's Chelsea, suporting her mom through confirmation hearings...
(which, according to Michelle Malkin, involve only softball questions - if any - from GOP members).
When Committee Chairman John Kerry, known for his warmth and excellent comedic timing...
...er, no, wait...
Anyway, he comes across with this gem:
“Since your father served as an intern on this committee, maybe we can make you an intern for a day, chairman’s prerogative,” Kerry said to laughs. “So if you want to come up here later and look out, we’re happy to welcome you.”
Ok, so I was bored & on my way to work when I heard that one on the radio (delivered straight and strictly as part of the story coverage) ...
So I understand that it's completely on me that my mind tossed up an image of Lurch leering down from the podium, uttering the words...
"Your father served..."
"...we can make you an intern for a day..."
"...if you want to come up here later..."
Even now, a couple of hours later, I'm still torn between flinching, laughing and checking to make sure my cup is sympathetically in place against the inevitable kick, delivered to Lurch with such force as to be deemed the new "Shot Heard 'Round The World".
If Chelsea's expression is any indication:
... she may have heard it the same way.
P.S. - it's not just me - Chelsea is looking hotter than she has any right to?
