John Kerry’s dry run all wet

I’ve been concentrating so intently on Obama and his inner circle recently, that I haven’t had time to give much thought to the Democratic Party’s lesser fauna, so it was with some surprise that I learned that John Kerry has apparently been hungering for the top job at State (this is actually something I probably knew, but had forgotten, along with just about everything else I used to know that was Kerry-related, including his losing bid for the presidency; sorry, but a guy has to purge his mental files of useless junk every now and then).

Anyhow, according to this article (linked by Drudge), Kerry had hoped to parlay his lobbying for the Law of the Sea Treaty into the cabinet seat currently occupied by Hillary Clinton’s ample bottom.

Nice try, Lurch, but for now, it looks like you’ll have to limit your undermining of U.S. sovereignty to your Senate votes.

"Curses! Foiled again!”

Lurch longs for success. He's stayed Senator only because of the Krazy Kennedy Klan's influence in Taxachusetts, not because of any accomplishments in Congress. Aside from screwing with the Paris Peace Talks, I mean.

And his Presidential campaign was little more than a running gag. So, he needs something to show his lasting success. He likely considers taking up where Ted Kennedy stopped in the destruction of the United States as a suitable objective.

Fortunately, 'tis not to be. John Effin' Kerry couldn't out do Billary.

Ain't nothin' worse than a gigolo with ambition.

JeffS said...

Yeah, if he hadn't married into money, Lurch would be cruising the streets of 'Frisco.

Let's look at it this way: Ted Kennedy was an evil, but extremely cunning man, with uncanny political skills and the ruthlessness to match. Senator Horseface wants to be Ted Kennedy, but he ain't no Ted Kennedy. Let him keep trying, because that keeps the rest of us out of trouble.

Deborah Leigh said...Kerry and all who supported LOST should be removed from office for not upholding their Oath of Office that states they will uphold the Constitution and all our laws. Why isn't there very loud outcry and swift action against these people?!

Kerry, if he was smart (I know, a counterfactual scenario here), would take a lesson from Hillary. She would have had more power and influence if she had stayed a senator, plus probably a better shot at the 2016 nomination (maybe even the 2012, given Obama's incompetence). She's basically a figurehead at State. So if Lurch wants power and influence, he should stay in the Senate.

With any luck, we won't have to worry about Lurch becoming Sec State in a second Obama Admiistration.
