    John Kerry played the same old card he always plays - Vietnam: I have to tell you, my friend, I've been, quote, attacked before - by people using real bullets, not words. This would be a pretty funny line from the characteristically tin-eared Kerry applied to almost anyone from the Belgian Deputy Tourism Minister on up. But it's especially hilarious directed at Mr Bennett, who's a veteran of two of Israel's toughest special-forces units and could undoubtedly kill the Secretary of State with his bare hands were he minded so to do.

    Despite having reservations on the transparency of the electoral process, the US said it is ready to engage directly with the Iranian Government led by its newly elected President moderate Hassan Rowhani with the hope that the new leader will honor international obligations. "We, along with our international partners, remain ready to engage directly with the Iranian government. We hope they will honor their international obligations to the rest of the world in order to reach a diplomatic solution that will fully address the international community's concerns about Iran's nuclear program," Secretary of State John Kerry said yesterday.

    It looks like the U.S. government will give serious thought this week to arming Syrian rebel groups, days after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces re-captured the key city of Qusair. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to an AP report, has pushed back his mideast trip this week because the White House is planning to discuss sending weapons to some rebel groups. Kerry was supposed to go to Israel and Palestine to hack away at a peace plan for the region. But, perhaps because Syria's situation became even more pressing this week, the Associated Press's sources say that reported trip...

    It’s always great to hear old radicals reminiscing about the time they helped undermine America. It’s even better when they have risen to become Secretary of State. With Kerry, America has its own version of Joschka Fischer. The problem is that America didn’t need a Joschka Fischer or a Joschka Kerry. Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking at the General Assembly of the Organization of American States in Guatemala on Wednesday, reminisced about his first trip to Latin America as a U.S. senator back in 1985: “I have been traveling, actually, to Latin America for decades now.

There’s nobody to blame but myself for that,” the Massachusetts Democrat told The Boston Globe for Friday’s editions. Kerry added that he did nothing legally wrong.

    The saga of Senator John Kerry's $ 7 million sailing yacht tied up on the Newport waterfront in the tax haven of Rhode Island proved again how adept Democrats are at spending other people's money. This time the $7 million was presumably spent from his wife's inherited fortune. But the larger story here isn't about tax havens. And it isn't about hypocrisy. And it's far less about trophy wives with trust funds. It's not even about being a lifelong leech working in government jobs sucking the blood out of beleaguered taxpayers.

    There was a picture here some time ago that we were invited to caption. It showed The Useless standing by a lamp while 2 senators - Schumer, Reid, Murray and Durbin walk by. I can't find it and would appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

    Dear xxx, During the campaign and since then, we have talked to Americans from coast to coast about the environment and the critical challenge we all face in protecting the earth for future generations. From those conversations the idea emerged that we should write a book, This Moment on Earth, which we hope will help spark a new conversation about ways that everyday Americans from all walks of life can have an impact on the environment around them. The stories have inspired and moved us. Our hope is that they lead all of us to question the way things are,...

    Kerry grills nominee over Swift boat By SAM HANANEL, Associated Press Writer 22 minutes ago A Senate hearing that began with glowing tributes to a St. Louis businessman and his qualifications to become ambassador to Belgium turned bitterly divisive Tuesday after he was criticized for supporting a controversial conservative group. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., grilled nominee Sam Fox about why he donated $50,000 to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth during the 2004 presidential race. The group of Vietnam veterans made unsubstantiated allegations against Kerry — then the Democratic presidential nominee — and charged that Kerry did not deserve the...

    The Washington Post ^ | 12/24/2006 | John F. Kerry
    There's something much worse than being accused of "flip-flopping": refusing to flip when it's obvious that your course of action is a flop. I say this to President Bush as someone who learned the hard way how embracing the world's complexity can be twisted into a crude political shorthand. Barbed words can make for great politics. But with U.S. troops in Iraq in the middle of an escalating civil war, this is no time for politics. Refusing to change course for fear of the political fallout is not only dangerous -- it is immoral. I'd rather explain a change of...

    (AP) WASHINGTON Sen. John Kerry, whose botched joke about U.S. troops in Iraq dealt a blow to his presidential ambitions, will travel to Iraq this weekend to meet with soldiers, political leaders and military officials. "I've talked to plenty of guys who've come back from Iraq, who are there now, who understand exactly what happened," Kerry said of his joke in a telephone interview Tuesday with The Associated Press. "They laugh at it." The Iraq stop will be part of a nine-day Mideast trip that includes stops in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Israel. A week before the midterm elections,...

    WASHINGTON: Enough with The Joke, John Kerry says. The Massachusetts senator and former Democratic presidential nominee said Wednesday night that it is time to move on from his botched attempt at humor before the Nov. 7 congressional elections. Kerry had said people might get "stuck in Iraq" if they do not study hard and do their homework. He said he was trying to poke fun at President George W. Bush, but Bush and others accused him of criticizing the troops. "This is getting silly," Kerry said on CNN's "Larry King Live." "The country needs to think about a policy that...

    You’re John Kerry, the least liked politician in America, and if it’s been a bad year for Republicans, it’s been even worse for gigolos. Just ask Kevin Federline. He feels your pain, ditto Mel Gibson and Kramer and Michael Vick. One mistake - one little botched joke - and all of a sudden they kick you down the stairs like you’re Ned Lamont. According to this poll that you’re not paying any attention to whatsoever, Barack Obama is the second most popular politician in America, after Rudy Giuliani, who has terrible hair by the way. Barack Obama! You’re John Kerry,...
