And Furthermore, Squirrels Could Fly Rapidly Out of My Butt-Cheeks!

NY Magazine, Ladies and Gentlemen! They provide today’s comedic interlude. In an article entitled “True Compass”, they suggest that John F. Kerry could become the conscience of the Senate. If such is the case, I’d sure as heck hate to meet Sen. Fagin from the Dickens Version of Advise and Consent.

I suppose he needed that True Compass to find a nice safe harbor for his yacht where the taxes don’t rise like an angry Nor’Easter. Maybe it’s where he’ll hold the confessionals. They just shouldn’t write propaganda about the man using nautical terms. The hoi-polloi could so take it the wrong way.

Anyways, since I mentioned this quaint piece of journOlistic pecker-polishing, I suppose, with suitable barf alert, that I should share a couple of the choicer paragraphs. Here goes, enjoy your daily victuals.

…it would have been easy for Kerry to skulk back to the Senate and sulk his way through Obama’s term. Instead, Kerry has embraced his senatorial role with new vigor, emerging as arguably the most important Democrat in the upper chamber, and certainly its most influential voice on two of the most pressing issues of the moment: energy/climate change and the war in Afghanistan. On both matters, Kerry’s preferred policies—and the administration’s—have taken some major hits in recent days, as Senate Democrats shelved their effort to enact cap-and-trade legislation before the midterms and the WikiLeaks document dump further undermined the already fast-eroding support for America’s military engagement in Afghanistan.

(HT: NY Magazine).

Awe, it’s so special that people are realizing John Kerry’s fundamental greatness. Maybe, one day, the people will be properly grateful. Put enough Heinz 57 Sauce on the truth, and people will call the man a public servant without that annoying lilt of irony in their voice.
