More like ‘DeMint *schools* Kerry over Honduras.’
(Via Jen Rubin) Let’s review (I almost did this using an extended metaphor of a fencing match, but I didn’t want actual fencers wincing): Sen. John Kerry is the Democratic point man in Foreign Relations for this administration’s messed-up Honduras policy. He is, in fact, the Foreign Relations chair… which tells you how seriously the Democrats take this committee (i.e., they don’t). Sen. Jim DeMint | Read More »
John Kerry Sounds Obama’s Afghanistan Call to Retreat
John Kerry had an op-ed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal titled Testing Afghanistan Assumptions, wherein he carefully laid out a path for President Obama to retreat from his hawkish pre-election statements to a path of defeat. Beyond diminishing General McChrystal’s ability to provide fair and accurate information, the Senior Senator from Massachusetts basically throws him under the bus saying – As the commander on the | Read More »
A Legislative Flip Flop Outrageous Even By Massachusetts Standards
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator Political Expediency At Its Worst Back in 2004, when it appeared that John Kerry might be reporting for duty at the White House, the Democrats in Massachusetts feared that Governor Romney would use his powers to name a Republican to the potentially vacant U.S. Senate seat. To prevent this from happening, the state legislature, led by the Democrat | Read More »
China Ditches US Dollar with $50 Billion IMF Bond Purchase

The Chinese government has agreed to purchase up to $50 billion worth of International Monetary Fund bonds, the first such notes in the fund’s history, the IMF said Wednesday.

A Tale of Two Teddies
Reports indicate that Teddy “bridge diver” Kennedy has privately sent a letter to the Massachusetts governor asking that the state amend its succession laws. This is in an effort to avoid a vacancy should the ever-thirsty Senator have to leave the senate due to his life-threatening brain tumor. The current law was enacted in 2004 when the liberal Democrats of Massachusetts deluded themselves into thinking | Read More »
Nobody Boos a Nobody
To summarize baseball legend Reggie Jackson: nobody boos a nobody. That is definitely true in the case of Governor Sarah Palin. I don’t think I am going out on a limb here when I speculate that individuals who repeatedly attack her anonymously view her as a threat. And that includes members of the media hell-bent tearing down young Republican up-and-comers as well as some in | Read More »
Spokesperson: Kerry didn’t mean what he said
Senator John Kerry has thrown the joke he told Tuesday about Governor Sarah Palin under the bus. Or in Kerryspeak, he obviously voted for the joke before he voted against it. Just one day after Gov. Palin stood up to the liberal Senator and returned fire, he has apparently calculated that his joke went too far, not to mention that he has lousy timing.
Does Kerry moonlight as a writer for Letterman?
One would think Sen. John Kerry (D-Cambodia) would have realized by now that his idea of humor doesn’t go over very well. It must be because he’s a nasty person, and his pathetic attempts at being funny just turn out to be… well, nasty.
Mental Parasite-free Kerry all caught up to AT LEAST 2006!
If you’re into science fiction at all, you’ve probably come across the concept of the Puppet Masters: creatures, usually alien (although sometimes demonic), that insidiously take over people and make them into organic robots with no free will or volition. Staple of the genre, in fact – but one thing that never really got addressed in the books or movies is what happened to long-term | Read More »
IRS puts tax lien on Kerry’s 2004 campaign.
(Via NTCNews‘ sidebar) Good luck with getting that resolved, Senator: WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service has filed a $819,848 tax lien against Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign, but Kerry on Wednesday blamed an IRS clerical error for the claim and said his campaign owes no tax penalties. The Massachusetts Democrat said the IRS mishandled payroll tax forms that he said were correctly | Read More »
The brilliant John Kerry
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.” -Thomas Jefferson John Kerry, has a solution to the Mexican drug wars, | Read More »
Pakistan Releases AQ Khan, Yet John Kerry Says Pakistan is ‘Transforming’ for Better
Proving his tin ear on foreign policy is still as tinny as ever, the hapless John Kerry (D, Mass.) said recently that he believes that Pakistan is “transforming” and “taking terrorists head on.” Yet, only a day or so later, Pakistan announced that it was releasing the notorious nuke trader Abdul Qadeer Khan from house arrest claiming he is innocent of charges of running a | Read More »
Tough Guy John ‘François’ Kerry Wants ‘Hot Pursuit’ of Pirates
It’s like handing a sheriff’s badge to Don Knotts. Like entering Gary Coleman in a Mr. Universe contest. Like expecting Michael Moore not to lie. In today’s laugher, the Associated Press is presenting John ‘François’ Kerry as a tough guy out to bring the law to the new Barbary pirates. Seriously. Stop laughing. The AP sternly informs us that, “As a young Navy swift boat | Read More »
We Should Have Known
[Wade Rowland] Sanders was chosen by fellow Swift boat veteran John Kerry to introduce him at the 2004 Democratic Convention, when the senator accepted the presidential nomination. He briefly entered the 2000 congressional race in a San Diego district, but withdrew citing lack of funding. He ran as a Democrat. Sanders served as the senior adviser to California Lt. Gov. John Garamendi for Veterans and | Read More »
State Department Rumor: Hillary to get the Kennedy Treatment?
There is an unsubstantiated rumor floating around Washington today that last night, Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) called President-Elect Barack Obama and asked that Obama appoint Senator John Kerry (D-EU) Secretary of State so that Governor Deval Patrick could appoint former Congressman Joe Kennedy (D-Venezuela) to Kerry’s seat. The assumption is that then Senator Kennedy’s wife, Victoria Reggie, would be appointed to his seat should he | Read More »
