I had a dream last night.
There sat the dog faced John Kerry before the Senate confirmation hearings for his appointment to Secretary of State. After the Chair had praised his vast "Diplomatic Experience"... Followed by praise for his integrity, honorable service, etc. He finally turns the hearing over to the rest of the panel for questioning... and here is where my dream turned to fantasy... For in my dream... the first Republican Senator to ask a question starts like this....
Senator... you life story is a long and storied one...well known throughout the world... and the Chair has praised your integrity and diplomatic experience... I'd like to start by asking you to once again describe your famous Christmas Eve, secret mission into Cambodia ... Which I find most interesting since you weren't even in SE Asia during the Christmas time of year? Then I would like to ask... is consorting with our nations enemies part of your "Diplomatic Experience"... Like North Vietnam while we were at war? The Sandinista's while we were engaged in conflict in Central America ? The butcher Assad and Saddam Hussein in the Middle East ... and the Russians and Chinese when we were engaged in the Cold War?
And would you explain to us how you recruited your fellow "Winter Soldiers" to come and testify before Congress about atrocities committed by our American Soldiers and Marines... when most of the so called witnesses you recruited... were never even in the military or had ever gone to Vietnam? Remind us of your eye witness accounts of our Vietnam Veterans as being as ruthless as the hordes of Gangues Khan? Tell us when and where you observed that first hand Senator Kerry?
And  then I'd like to know why your citations for your Silver Stars were signed by a Secretary of the Navy... years and years after the war was over? And also, is it true as charged by eye witnesses... Your Purple Hearts were as a result of your own incompetence? Friendly fire by your own hand? These are just some of the questions I have... and should be answered before your confirmation.
And in my dream... I was cheerleading the line of questioning and thinking subconsciously... "Ask why he couldn't pass the Bar Exam... if he is so brilliant"? "Ask him why he parked his boat in Rhode Island ... Was it to avoid taxes on it in his home state"? "Ask him how he has accumulated  such grand wealth on the salary of a Senator"? "Is it true that your wealth was derived by marrying homely, if not downright ugly... rich heiresses and widows"? "And ask him why the men who served with him in Vietnam ... universally hate his guts... along with 99.9% of all Vietnam Veterans"? "Ask him if it is true that of all the men and women in the U.S. Senate... he is known to be the most egotistical of them all... only his good buddy, John McCain comes close. A man who also married well... Birds of a feather"?
And then... I woke up!  Ain't gonna happen... Politicians are gutless!
But I have to ask myself? Is this the face America wants to present to the rest of the world? A man  who has made a career of lies, falsehoods and deceit? I can think of no human being... who symbolizes the term; "Ugly American" more than John Kerry.  A liar, a phony, arrogant, piece of human dog poop if there ever was one!
Is this a man we should be proud to be hailed as a "Great American"? Can any foreign leader ever trust a single word out of this man's mouth... when it is documented that he has lied to his own countrymen... time after time after time... Is this the best we have offer? In a perfect world... this man wouldn't even be considered for "Dog Catcher"... even though he did manage to capture two in his lifetime.
He is an insult... a mortal insult... to all who have served.

I had a dream that I could totally burn that politician I hate for all that evil stuff I imagined! It was awesome!

Winter Soldier Investigation testimony verification
His Silver Star, awarded in under a month.
He did pass the bar

I don't even have to leave Wikipedia to refute this nonsense.

Also: since when do conservatives care about where people get their money?

He raises good points, albeit fabricated ones. It's far better that our Secretary of State be a Republican who criticizes the military while never having served.

You know - a chickenhawk.

"Is it true that your wealth was derived by marrying homely, if not downright ugly... rich heiresses and widows"?

Amazing how they can manage to be factually wrong, insulting and misogynistic in one simple sentence. Its truly a talent. Not a useful talent, but a talent nonetheless.

I'll never forget a few years ago when I encountered some asshole in a comment section who was still ranting and raving about all of Kerry's supposed sins in Vietnam. I asked him why he was still repeating these long debunked lies, and he demanded to know where Kerry's "missing" service and medical records were. I googled them and had the entire file in about 25 seconds. Yet somehow this didn't satisfy him. Its almost like he was denying reality or something...

Aren't these kool-aid drinking Republicans even mildly curious as to why a man who was reviled as a traitor by them in 2004 is suddenly, in 2013, A-OK as Secretary of State? Might those reasons be purely political and expedient--just like the lies they told about him in 2004? I know wingers, it's hard to think clearly when you're frothing at the mouth all the time.

Although I agree this is utter bullshit, Hands Handley was a helluva fighter pilot...I'll give him that.


But Hands, you are being played for a damned fool if you actually believe even a quarter of your so-called dream. Let me guess...now you're an old man and you watch FOX all day long. And shake your cane at those crazy kids playing on your lawn.

What is it with retired colonels with these people? It seems to be the favorite figure for quote material on all these flag-waving military worship bullshit RW emails?

My guess it that there are enough retired colonels around that they can always find at least a few who are willing to crap out this kind of wingnut bile, especially since some of them probably wanted to be Generals but were denied the chance and are bitter about it. See North, Oliver, who of course would have been Chairman of the Joint Chiefs some day if not for those damn liberal agitators who dragged his perfect name through the mud, dontchaknow!
