JK + Small Biz = TLF

For real, and they are so cute together.

Brangelina? LAME. Bennifer 2? LAMER. Filliam H. Muffman? LAMEST!!!* But the little-to-moderately publicized celebrity romance between Senator John Kerry and Small Business is officially as hot as the sun!

Being a busy, bedraggled, and ridiculously underpaid owner of a small business myself, I don't have a lot of time to pay attention to celebrity news, so I can't really speak to when and where the Senator and the Small Business Community began their affair. But it was really only a matter of time before I realized they make one heck of a gorgeous couple.

Just last week, Inc. Magazine alluded to the steamy relationship in the provocatively titled feature, "Who loves you in DC", accompanied by an attractive slideshow. Yes, entrepreneurs, it's true: a good-looking politician is doing a good job of looking out for us. Be still my crafty heart!

And for the rest of you who don't have time to keep up with the saucy bits of the Senate-related news cycle, the We Love John Kerry blog is bringing the headlines to you.

The Can't-Misses:

Marriage in the future for Kerry and Small Biz? What about venture capital for women and minorities?

Kerry on Bush not funding Katrina Small Biz Relief: "He's clearly jealous of our love"

The State of Their Union: Can Kerry and Small Biz survive Bush's lack of goals and initiative?

Enjoy!



*The author apologizes for bending the truth on this one. While still significantly more lame than JK + Small Biz, Democrafty actually thinks that Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy are, both separately and as a couple, really, really cool.

John Forbes Kerry, Superhero!

Because he fights tirelessly for Truth, Justice and the missing-in-action American Way.

Because he will not back down in the face of lies, cowardly ridicule or monumental corruption, but keeps coming back to fight another day, stronger than before.

Because he believes the future will be brighter and kindles the light of hope to lead us out of the shadows of fear.

Because of this (and all the calls to action like it that he has been issuing for the past year):

Date: Fri, 10 Feb 2006 13:58:36 -0500
From: John Kerry
Subject: Evidence mounts against Cheney

In the last 24 hours, we've seen troubling reports that Dick Cheney directed "Scooter" Libby to release classified information to discredit critics of the war in Iraq...we've heard hard-to-ignore accusations from a former top CIA official that the White House "cherry picked" intelligence to make the case for war...and we've received stunning evidence that the president sat on his hands and did nothing for 12 hours after the White House had been informed that the levees broke in New Orleans.

Enough is enough.

Yesterday, we launched our nine-month Break Their Grip on Power campaign and thousands of people from all across the nation have already acted. Add your voice to our efforts right now.

Let's expose the culture of corruption that has engulfed the Republican Congress and the culture of incompetence that has swallowed up the White House. Let's get the focus back on solving the enormous challenges the people of this country are facing because of lack of leadership from Washington.

Contribute Today to Break Their Grip on Power.

Every step of the way in 2006, we'll support Democratic candidates - giving them the help they need to break the Republicans' grip on power.

And, when the Republicans and their henchmen launch their vicious attacks on our candidates, we'll fight back with force and redouble our support for any candidate they target.

That's what it's going to take to win - nine months of relentless effort. And it has to start now. Let's go to work.

Sincerely,
John Kerry

For all these reasons, and so many more, I submit that John Kerry is a SUPERHERO! And I can prove it:
