Kerry’s Fumble

By on 1.27.06 | 7:22AM

As John Batchelor pointed out in the wee hours, Kerry's Swiss-based filibuster is an act of self-immolation. It's so bad that the New York Times, in its news coverage, characterizes it today as "quixotic" and awkward. The Washington Post reports Republicans razzing Kerry for beginning the stunt from overseas. Contrast that honesty to the Boston Globe, which comes off as a little too home town for its senators by omitting an mention of Kerry launching this filibuster from Davos or the chilly reception on Capitol Hill.

The Times also reports, as did Batchelor, that Kerry returns to Washington today. Should be an entertaining Friday in the Capital City.
