This Cracked Me Up

A reader:

Kerry’s finished. I know that as a Yankees fan, you don’t have much experience with hexes, jinxes and bad voodoo. But I think that John Kerry jinxed himself out of winning the election. Kerry periodically said, when trying to depict himself as a Red Sox “fan” (which he isn’t) that it would be worth waiting “one more year” for a Sox world championship if it meant his winning the election this year. Again, you don’t mess with this sort of stuff. But Kerry did. And I think in expressing these thoughts, he’s caused the jinx to boomerang from the Sox to him, because they went out and won THIS year. Kerry’s finished.
