Kerry Looks French?

"It's not John Kerry (news - web sites)'s fault that he looks French," Smith told reporters on the conference call arranged by the Bush campaign.

Sen. Gordon Smith (news, bio, voting record) (R-Ore.) accused Kerry of advocating socialism within the United States and appeasement overseas.

"It's not John Kerry (news - web sites)'s fault that he looks French," Smith told reporters on the conference call arranged by the Bush campaign.

"But it is his fault that he wants to pursue policies that have us act like the French. He advocates all kinds of additional socialism at home, appeasement abroad, and what that means is weakness for the future."

Some Republicans have referred jokingly to Kerry's ability to speak French and his physical appearance, but rarely has the reference found its way onto the campaign trail.
