Yuck! The only thing I can say about this list is that when it comes to doing exactly the wrong thing, Kerry never wavers, waffles or flip-flops. He's always wrong.

Of course that's what it means to be a liberal. Liberals are always wrong, even when they come down on both sides of an issue.

I must say I find this especially egregious. Kerry bows so deeply to the UN that he won't even criticize them for insulting our country with a toothless sense of the senate resolution.

No worries, thanks for posting the entire vote. I think a lot of moms might be interested to know he didn't find time to vote for either the Amber Alert (98-0) nor Aimee's Law (95-0).

I thought "yuck" was properly expressive :-)

Since you mention Barney Frank, it occurs to me that I'd rather have HIM as president than John Kerry.
