John Kerry is in an email frenzy. After yesterday’s mass mail-out, he now sends this:

Dear Friend,

I knew we could count on you. The powerful new TV ad I shared with you in yesterday’s email is striking a responsive chord. In just 24 hours, thousands of you have acted to help Keeping America’s Promise call dramatic attention to the needs of 11 million American children living without health insurance …

We’re going outside of Washington—to the hometowns of people like Bill Frist, Tom DeLay, Trent Lott and Rick Santorum—asking American families to demand that those who control Congress’ agenda put Kids First.

Screw Congress; what about the Senate, Senator? Kerry is apparently worth at least $164 million. His wife is worth about $500 million. Between the pair of them, they could pay—based on the average $1,590 annual cost of Medicaid per child—the health insurance for twelve months of nearly half-a-million deprived waifs. They could even rescue 250,000 or so children and still have $330 million left over. Put Kids First!
