Kerry as "pandescender"

Andrew Sullivan (writing for the London Times) has some thoughts on condencending Kerry’s inclination to also pander to voters, an unusual combination. "Here’s a word that deserves to be entered into the political lexicon. The blogger Mickey Kaus coined it. It’s "pandescender." It stems from John Kerry’s remarkable political ability to both pander and condescend to voters at the same time. In a word, it’s what’s obviously wrong with the Kerry candidacy for president of the United States, and, even in the early post-primary glow of his anointing, is troubling even die-hard Democrats as they confront president Bush in the fall."
