Some of you may not be old enough to remember the past when it comes to how John F. Kerry got his political start, aided and abetted by the ol’ lyin’ of the Senate Ted Kennedy…but that’s another long story. We all know Kerry is going to be our next Secretay of State, the senate will overwhelming vote for his confirmation, that’s a given. (thank you John McRINO!)
Nevertheless, we’ll start with the past here. This is what he had to say way back when. – This is via GP:
Back in 1971 John Kerry made a name for himself when he went before Congress and lied about his army brethren. Kerry accused US soldiers of numerous war crimes.
Here is what Kerry said about his fellow soldiers back in 1971:
“They had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam.”
The disgusting speech propelled this antiwar idiot into a career in politics.
Now here’s what happened today during part of his confirmation hearing in the Senate this morning. Through my viewfinder in life this gal is right up Kerry’s ally…after-all, he used to be one of those who shared the same sentiments. They just don’t come any phonier than Kerry in my book.

A lone female anti-war protester interrupted Secretary of State nominee John Kerry’s Senate confirmation hearing Thursday, shouting about people dying in the Middle East.
“You are killing thousands of people, the Middle East is not a threat to us! When is it going to be enough, when are enough people going to be killed?” the protester, wearing a pink hat and scarf, yelled. “I’m tired of my friends in the Middle East dying, I don’t know if they’re going to be alive the next day!”
After the woman was escorted from the room, Kerry said he “respects” the ability of people to speak out in protest.
“When I first came to Washington and testified I obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is above all what this place is about,” Kerry said. “I respect, I think, the woman who was voicing her concerns about that part of the world.”
Shrillary introduced Kerry today at the hearing…isn’t that precious? Two Peas in a Pod!
Friends, I don’t know which one will prove to be worse when it comes to what happens during his tenure as Sec. of State this time ’round…what do you think?
