Should President Obama appoint John Kerry as Secretary of Defense he would be anointing a man who first came to national prominence by accusing his fellow soldiers of committing war crimes in Vietnam.
He would also be appointing the man who said back in 2006, “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 can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
Kerry, of course, said his remark was “a botched joke.”
If Obama names Kerry Secretary of Defense that would surely be a botched joke.
Next thing you know Obama will consider appointing Susan “Spontaneous Protest” Rice as Secretary of State. Oh wait, he is.
