Kerry Bends OverIn the biggest test of his leadership mettle so far, presidential hopeful Senator John F. Kerry of Massachusetts has lined up with the cows.

Kerry is a fellow member of Yale's Skull & Bones, the bizarre cult that both George Bushes were members of, an association that incorporates rites that it is hard to envision any sane, civilized adult taking part in.
