Carr: John Kerry is ‘totally oblivious’ and totally loving it all
Boston Herald ^ | 2/19/14 | Howie Carr

Posted on 02/19/2014 7:51:01 AM PST by raccoonradio

A guy in The Wall Street Journal yesterday had a question about the secretary of state that I feel qualified to answer.

“When John Kerry speaks,” Bret Stephens wrote, “people wonder: Is he seriously clever or totally oblivious? Profound or void? Detective Columbo or Chance the gardener?’

The answers are: totally oblivious, void and Chance the gardener.

But Stephens is posing the wrong questions here. It’s not his fault, because you’re supposed to take a guy with Liveshot’s supposedly impeccable resume seriously. But the fact is, Kerry is an empty suit’s empty suit, and the only thing about him that should be taken seriously is his career as a gigolo.

First he married Julia Thorn, from the Main Line, who was worth maybe $300 million. She dumped him, and he ended up sleeping on his ex-brother-in-law’s couch.

But then he again struck gold, and I do mean gold, as in gold-digger. This time it was U.S. Sen. John Heinz’s widow, Mama T. She’s worth close to a billion, and by the time he became secretary of state, he had gone from a net worth of perhaps $2.78 to “the richest man in the Senate.”

He made his money the old-fashioned way. He married it.

Otherwise, what exactly has he done? The phrase “idiot savant” comes to mind, if it’s defined as “intelligence in one or several areas (but) lacking or without common sense.”

Think of all the idiotic things he’s said over the years. He’s the Democrats’ Dan Quayle.

“Can I get me a hunting license here?”

“I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against the $87 billion.”

“If you don’t (study) you get stuck in Iraq.” (Followed by his if-possible even dumber explanation: “It was a botched joke!”)

“This tunnel will be a bargain!” (He was talking about the Big Dig.)

“The Iraqi army is in such bad shape, even the Italian army could kick its butt.”

On former Gov. Bill Weld: “The guy takes more vacations than a guy on welfare.” (Should a world-class gigolo really be ripping anyone else, even bums, for their leisure time?)

In the Journal, Stephens wrote that Kerry seems like a “true believer” in global warming, or whatever the moonbats are calling their cult this week. Actually, Bret, Liveshot just believes what he thinks all the other kool kids believe right at this moment — anti-Vietnam, pro-
Sandinista, nuclear freeze, now global whatever-they-call-it. The Israelis think Liveshot hates them because he’s trying to jam a crappy peace deal with the Palestinians down their throats. Nothing could be further from the truth. He doesn’t care about the 
Israelis or the 
Palestinians one way or the other.

He only cares about a Nobel Peace Prize. All the kool kids have one.

Newt Gingrich this week called Liveshot “delusional.” Is this supposed to be news?

Profundity is not Jean-Francois Kerre’s strong suit.

Do not hasten to attribute to him, those virtues he simply does not possess.

Clearly there is no facility for critical thinking remaining, if ever any existed.

A diff thread has his brother Cam explaining that John can't be anti-Semitic--"we're Jewish". Discovered Jewish grandparents in '04. After he had prostate (IIRC) surgery one year, and people doubted he'd make the annual St Patrick's Day breakfast at Halitosis Hall, he actually did show up with Ta-ray-za and joked, "Who said I don't have the matzoh balls to be here?"

Botched Joke

Would it be accurate to say that Kerry is oblivious in the fashion of Chauncy the Gardener?

Kerry has the same level of mental agility found in kitchen appliances.

I prefer the more normal nomenclature:

Ed Markey replaced Kerry in the Senate and I would be hard pressed to answer which one was smarter.

He 's totally oblivious, completely void, and Chance the gardener would be an improvement!

Kerry was never the sharpest knife in the drawer - he does have a talent for self-promotion and finding rich women to marry - but all that Botox has made him even duller. He looks like his face has been sandblasted and recast in concrete.

Still, I'm glad someone said it.

Its a race to the bottom of the gene pool between Kerry and Biden.

Kerry’s haughty, condescending speech delivery is one of his most annoying qualities. He sounds like Thurston Howell III scolding someone, even if he’s just ordering lunch. I guess if you are descended from the Easter Island aliens who left their statues behind, you could tend to be overly impressed with yourself.

My favorite Kerry photo: After losing to Dubya, forced to cower in the background to these "mental giants."

Your cruel criticism of my former CO is mean-spirited.

After all this man has been awarded
The Silver Star
The Croix de Guerre avec Palm
The Pour le Merité mit das Ritterkreutz und Diamants
The Order of the Thousand Elephants
and has three (3) Purple Hearts.

The fact that these honors were self-awarded is unimportant. His clandestine swim up the Mekong to track down NAZI spies on Christmas Eve at the orders of soon-to-be President Nixon shows an uncanny ability to deal with even those on the politically opposite side of the philosophical spectrum and will live forevermore in the military annals of our great nation, especially if he has anything to say about it. I am as proud of this Irish-American hero as I would be proud of Elizabeth Warren if I were a Native American. (Or if he were actually Irish, or she an Indian, anyway)
