Who Doesn't Love Naked Children?

I know what she means. She has good intentions. But the way she says it plays into the out-of-touch weirdo stereotypes.

"Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids," said Heinz Kerry

There's nothing sinister about her. She was talking about prioritizing emergency shipments to hurricane victims. "Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes."

So far the Kerry campaign handlers have done a pretty good job of keeping her on-message or at least out of the papers since her odd-ball performance in Boston. Is this a rare lapse or a sign that their discipline is breaking down?
