Yahoo! News - Heinz Seeks to Disavow Kerry Connection

The company has received about 150 calls this month from consumers vowing to boycott Heinz products, or in some instances to buy more, said company spokeswoman Debbie Foster.

"It's just crazy," Foster said. "We haven't been involved in politics since Morris the Cat ran for president in 1988" — when the company ran a spoof campaign with Morris, the face of Heinz 9 Lives cat food, as the finicky candidate.
Yep, it's a cheap shot. No fair-minded person would say that this has anything to do with John Kerry's politics. But it just sounds so right...
