Teresa at length

The New Yorker has a mouthwatering profile of First Lady wannabe Maria Teresa Thierstein Simões-Ferreira Heinz Kerry [1].

Than whom one can scarcely imagine a Martian would make more of a contrast with the current occupants of the White House. Rather like a Hispano-Suiza on a highway of Buicks and Pontiacs.

You feel it would be worth voting for Kerry just for the sheer fun of seeing her in action: a fantasy far too daring for the druther-meisters that stroke liberal organs in The West Wing.

Eleanor Roosevelt simply won't be in it: THK has the enormous boon of an abundance of that essential political asset - fuck-off money. With the Foundation, she's used to important folks treating her like royalty. And she has that prenup.

I get the impression of a suped-up, continental version of one of Bertie Wooster's aunts...

  1. Simões-Ferreira was her maiden name: who the Thiersteins were is not explained.
