Another Kerry Tale

This letter from a reader sounds awfully consistent with the “beignets” story I posted last week:

Dear Jonah Goldberg,

let me share what a friend of mine, a college professor originally from

Massachusetts and with liberal point of views, told 1 year ago about his so far only encounter with John Kerry.

My friend was standing in line at Barnes & Noble, when John Kerry approached the sales clerk, demanding to have his purchase processed immediately. The clerk was not inclined towards granting Kerry that favor, whereupon Kerry asked him: “Don’t you know who I am?” The clerk had an answer ready: “Yes, you are the guy who has to position himself at the back of the line.” 🙂
