Kerry on Gilligan’s Island?

Apparently, Steven Taylor wasn’t the only one reminded of Gilligan by John Kerry’s convention. Maureen Dowd was, too, according to Matt Drudge:

“Given that the Kerry convention featured a skipper brave and sure, a first mate who makes others comfortable, a millionaire called “Lovey” by her spouse, two pretty young Kerry castaways and a movie star (the ubiquitously annoying Ben Affleck), I suppose we should be grateful that Camp Kerry didn’t introduce the nominee with the “Gilligan’s Island” theme song.”

So mocks NYT TIMES Op-Ed Queen, and soon to be bestselling author, Maurren Dowd.

“Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip.”

Dowd is set to fire off her latest Sunday column to the unwashed media savvy.

“At least Teresa Heinz Kerry kept her subliminal message simple: She wore a ketchup-red suit to introduce the second senator in her life.

UPDATE (8/1 1321): Here’s the actual column: Can He Float Your Boat?

    No, really. After all, for all of the Professor’s schemes, the castaways never actually got off of the island on their own… 🙂
