"Did you really mean to say that on purpose?"

What, Menendez's experience with foreign affairs?

Well, Obama did need someone he could count on to lie out his butt, so Kerry is a perfect pick.

I’m open to pondering any other real alternatives.

I've been thinking about this as well. The thought that has occurred to me is to start/join some conservative business alliance in which the members make a serious commitment to provide mutual support. This community would become a "virtual nation" that is independent of physical location, and with members distributed across the world it would become much easier to migrate to hospitable environments.

I guess conservatives would almost become like the Jews were before the founding of Israel.

John McCrazy can't wait to give him a big ol' crazy hug at the confirmation hearings.

This is a travesty. But what isn't a travesty in this administration?

Hey, he speaks French don’t you know. I think he will do OK. A coward in combat perhaps—and a liberal hippie to boot, but, I think he might have the balls to stand up when things get bad. Would rather see Bolton have the Job but then Mitt lost. Hillary picked the guy and its one less Senator for the Democrats!

GOT Flamed last election for reminding people how skery and McCain were in charge of the POW reports[many still coming in]and refused to acknowledge them.Families were beside themselves.Shredders were in full mode.How could the worst of the worst be in charge?It was reported the powers that be wanted to make it all go away.Much more to the story but must do your own research,WARNING You will be disgusted. When people I know ask,why so fired up.I say,It could have been me.The highest Officer's imprisoned there stoutly recommended McCain be Court Marshaled at the very least.

Conflict-averse to the end, Barry is going the Senatorial Courtesy route to avoid bruising confirmation battles (Kerry, Chuck Hagel, etc.)

Members of The Club can be expected to rubber-stamp those without putting up a fuss. Heck he’d probably nominate Robert C. Byrd to the Cabinet if he could. (not certain where he is right now, but he doesn’t smell too good, that’s for sure)

the Heinz widow will enjoy her ‘boy toy’ having to travel so much!!! Hillary has lived in a plane and the skies for four years...will John Boy do that also????

but then maybe Hillary enjoyed that she got away from the ‘bent one’ for long, long periods of time...

The Democrats will succeed in replacing Kerry with another leftist Democrat, so it, really, doesn’t matter when the special election happens. RINO Scott Brown will, probably, run for this seat, but Scott Brown will end up losing badly. The Democratic machine of Massachusetts won’t let Scott Brown win, again.

This will give us plenty of opportunities to “Caption This.”

I’ve missed that here at FR with goofy Kerry. I used to LMAO with FReeper responses.

I’ll post a link as soon as I find a confirmation of this information, in the meantime, what few if any people know is that John Kerry was in... Vietnam. I didn’t (and don’t) know.

This should do wonders for morale.

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”~John Kerry-Heinz

That is an outright lie.
