Kerry should be encouraged...

I think AOG is correct here:

I normally like Best of the Web but the last couple of days has had the very weak trope of mocking Senator John Kerry for saying that (among other things) he and John Edwards deserved to be elected because they have better hair. I can’t stand Kerry but even I thought it was funny. It’s the kind of self-deprecating humour Reagan was so good at and it would probably do everyone some good to encourage Kerry in this instead of dumping on him. Given how excrutiating this campaign season is likely to be, every little bit helps.
I also thought Kerry's joke was funny.

The humor in Best of the Web tends to remind me of children's humor (which I hear a lot of). If something's funny once, it's funny when repeated 20 times.
