You want to know why John Kerry didn’t win in 2004? Listen to this rant by Kerry communications staffer Jim Loftus, caught in the upcoming documentary, “Inside the Bubble.”
When I was an advance guy if someone said, ‘Get a pony on the 10th floor of this hotel in four hours — I want a pony on the 1028 floor in four hours,’ I would have said, ‘What color eyes should it have?’ All I got — I gave these guys four days, ‘Find me a pony, get it in the goddamn room…’ — ‘Where am I gonna find a pony?’ I said, ‘Go to the fucking phone book, you’re an advance guy!’”
Of course. For want of a pony. . .
