    This guy has the lead touch. Next time your liberal friends tell you what a great leader Obama is, just point to what happened in Asia last week. One of the main purposes of the Asia trip was to sign a free-trade agreement with South Korea. The deal had already been fully negotiated (under Bush), was all set to go, it just needed the President's signature. So what does Know-It-All do? He tries to renegotiate the terms to be more friendly to his union buddies back home. End result? Talks collapse, no trade deal. Obama heads home empty-handed - again....

    Sen. John F. Kerry defended his controversial joke suggesting the GOP’s John McCain wears “Depends” adult diapers, saying today it’s the type of ribald humor you hear at the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day roast or on late-night TV.Kerry, appearing before the Boston Herald editorial board, bristled at the suggestion his jab was not senatorial.

    BOSTON Senator John Kerry gets behind radio and T-V personality Don Imus, saying he should NOT have been fired for making racially insensitive remarks. Kerry also says he'd be willing to go on Imus' show again as long as it wasn't (quote) "the same-old, same-old." In an interview with New York television station New-York-1, the Democrat says the punishment has to fit the crime, and that Imus should have instead faced a long suspension. Imus was fired last week for calling the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos" on his radio and T-V program. Kerry pointed to the decision...

    You’re Rep. Marty Meehan, and you were supposed to be in Miami today, basking in the Super Bowl XLI glow from YOUR New England Patriots. You had your reservations, dammit, but then something happened in Indianapolis, and now you’re back in Lowell. And on Friday in Boston you had a job interview - you, Marty Meehan, the congressman with the biggest campaign war chest of all 435 members of the House. Five million bucks. You’ve got so much cash they call you “Midas” Meehan, and now you’re interviewing for the job of chancellor of UMass-Lowell. When it comes to golden...

    Recently, I was re-reading one of P.J. O’Rourke’s books, and this happened to be while John Kerry was on Larry King Live. As Kerry was trying to dig his way out of a hole with such vigor that he was about to reach China, I ran across the chapter title, “Commies: Dead but too dumb to lie down.” I looked up at John Francois Kerry, and it was as if the gods of fortuitous timing were with me that evening. The chapter title, most of it anyway, was the perfect description of what has become of John Kerry’s presidential aspirations....

    BOSTON -- In the space of barely a minute, John Kerry's political life took an abrupt turn. There's before The Joke, when the Massachusetts senator appeared to be well on his way toward making a political comeback, laying the groundwork for a White House bid despite losing the 2004 presidential election. Then there's after The Joke, when even fellow Democrats and former supporters question whether Kerry is still politically viable. Kerry's quip just before the Nov. 7 midterm elections that those who don't study hard "get stuck in Iraq" not only forced him into isolation in the campaign's final days,...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- The Rev. Al Sharpton said Wednesday he refused to accept an apology from actor Michael Richards, who spouted a racist rant at a comedy club last week. But Sharpton said he did agree to meet with Richards to try to start a process to address racism in America. "I [told Richards] you need to sit down and deal with this," Sharpton told CNN. "This is not about accepting an apology, this is about starting a process to really deal with the continual problem of racism in this country." (Watch Richards' meltdown on stage -- 1:39 )...

    PORTLAND, Maine - A Democratic activist spotted on a highway overpass dressed as Osama bin Laden on Halloween faces additional charges for the stunt. Tom Connolly was charged Wednesday with terrorizing and reckless conduct, in addition to the original charge of criminal threatening, prosecutor Stephanie Anderson said in a statement. All three charges are misdemeanors. "Halloween or not, in this day and age you do not get to dress as an international terrorist and wave what appears to be an AK-47 at rush hour traffic," Anderson said. Connolly did not immediately return a call Wednesday. Police responded to calls from...

    NEW YORK - Faith Hill insists she's no Kanye West. The country music superstar says she was just joking when cameras showed her screaming "WHAT?" in apparent anger when she lost the female vocalist of the year award to newcomer Carrie Underwood at the Country Music Association Awards on Monday night in Nashville. "The idea that I would act disrespectful towards a fellow musician is unimaginable to me," Hill said in a statement. "For this to become a focus of attention given the talent gathered is utterly ridiculous. Carrie is a talented and deserving Female Vocalist of The Year."

    Swift Boater No. 1 November 5, 2006 12:50 am John Kerry's painful self-expiation SEN. JOHN KERRY'S little joke about smarts and soldiering in Iraq turned out to be, pardon the expression, not much of a swiftie. If the Kerry Correlation is true, the senator's performance at a California city college last week qualified him to be dropped off alone in middle of the Sunni Triangle with a rifle, pack, and desert uniform with a stitched-on name patch: Doofus. If that scenario sounds suicidal, Mr. Kerry's remark about the lazy and ill-educated "get[ting] stuck in Iraq"--he claimed later he was talking...

    The Massachusetts congressional delegation would like to ask Sen. John Kerry a question: How can we miss you when you won’t go away? You see, there’s a whole other story involved in Gigolo John’s political suicide in Pasadena last week. For weeks, the persistent rumor had been that once the elections were over, Liveshot would announce that 1) he was officially running for president in 2008, and 2) he would not seek re-election to the Senate. Nobody cared about 1) because a 2008 run would have obviously been his next “botched joke,” but 2) would have set off a stampede...

    My face time with John Kerry has been brief but choice. In 2003, I was at a campaign event in New Hampshire chatting with two old coots in plaid. The senator approached and stopped in front of us. The etiquette in primary season is that the candidate defers to the cranky Granite Stater's churlish indifference to status and initiates the conversation: "Hi, I'm John Kerry. Good to see ya. Cold enough for ya? How 'bout them Sox?" Etc. Instead, Kerry just stood there nose to nose, staring at us with an inscrutable semi-glare on his face. After an eternity, an...

    JIHAD IS FUN! VOTE DEMOCRAT! by Ann Coulter November 1, 2006 John Kerry is the "botched joke" of American politics. For those of you keeping score at home, John Kerry has now called members of the U.S. military (a) stupid, (b) crazy, (c) murderers, (d) rapists, (e) terrorizers of Iraqi women and children. I wonder what he'll call them tomorrow. Whatever Karl Rove is paying John Kerry to say stupid things, it's worth every penny. Now, back to the midterm elections ... Analysts place the average midterm loss for the party in the White House at around 15 to 44...

    Too late, Mr. Kerry. Your apology is 35 yrs too late. Your attitude toward the American Troops has reared its ugly head again and we are tired of it. Your weak apology won't cut it with me. You said you support the military, but your words and actions say otherwise. Mr. Kerry, you are a traitor to the United States of America. You ought to be locked up and charged with treason. Mr. Kerry, also, you need to resign from the United States Senate. You are a disgrace to the office of Senator and to the United States of America.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic Sen. John Kerry said on Wednesday he was sorry about a "botched joke" that drew election-year fire from President George W. Bush and other Republicans who accused him of insulting U.S. troops in Iraq. Kerry reiterated the target of his joke was Bush, who immediately seized on the senator's remarks to rally Republican supporters ahead of Tuesday's elections, in which the party's control of Congress is at risk. Kerry said he was returning to Washington from a trip campaigning on behalf of Democratic congressional candidates because he did not want to be "a distraction." A day...
