Kerry Media No-Nos

Monday, 25 October 2004 12:00 AM

It’s because now, before I write anything, I first have to consult the Dukakis/Gore Manual of Style, which lays out all the acceptable procedures when dealing with John Kerry coverage.

The thing’s chock full of “can dos” and “shove its,” meaning it dictates what I am and am not able to say when it comes to the Dem candidate for prez. Here a rundown on the media mandated yeses and nos I can talk about.

Yes: the Vietnam War hero, medals and all

Yes: video footage of his heroic “reenactments”

Yes: his mocking of the sitting president’s speech

Yes: the rugged outdoorsman who skis, surfs, bikes and hikes

Yes: Dick Cheney’s daughter being “who she is”

Yes: the French Kofi kisser

Yes: his altar boy history, solid cafeteria-Catholic standing and use of the “all depends on” rule when it comes to mixing up Church and State

Yes: his “Stronger America” line

Yes: his refashioned Pottery Barn rule

Yes: his ostrich ad

Yes: his brewskie swig during the Red Sox game

Yes: his poll numbers among Hollywood celebs

The Big No-no: Any discussion of John Edwards wanting to tag along but having to cancel because he couldn’t find a camouflage hairnet
