Two Of A Kind

Why doesn't John Kerry just move to France and end everyone's misery? He'll be happier having escaped the Great Satan, America will be happy, thoughtful citizens of Massachusetts will be VERY happy...and the French will be miserable.
Everybody wins!
Less than 48 hours after the hagiographic media coverage he got for heroically withdrawing from the presidential race (i.e., admitting he's so overwhelmingly unpopular that he'd come in second if he ran unopposed), Sen. Kerry was back doing what he does best: Hanging out with people who hate America, and lying to make them happy.

The same "hero" who returned from Vietnam to falsely accuse American soldiers of being rapists and murderers spent the weekend in Davos, Switzerland with terror supporters like former Iranian president Khatami. He took the opportunity to bash the Bush administration's record on global warming and AIDS in Africa:

"When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don't advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy," Kerry said.

"So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East - in the world, really. I've never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today."

As others have pointed out, he's wrong on both counts. It was the Clinton administration who "walked away" from the Kyoto Treaty, never even presenting it to the US Senate. Why? Because the Senate voted unanimously in 1997 to reject advance!

Oh, and if you happened to notice that John F. Kerry was a US Senator himself in 1997, you're smarter than he is.

As for AIDS in Africa, funding under the Bush administration is three times higher than it was when Clinton left office. Sen. Kerry, when did YOU propose a bill raising AIDS funding 300% for President Clinton to sign?

Uh, that would be "never."

John Kerry doesn't care. He knows the Euroweenies love to hate Bush and there's nothing negative you can say about America today that is negative enough for the Davos crowd.

But our junior senator from Massachusetts was more than happy to try.
Hat tip:
UPDATE: This is the sort of headline that should make every Massachusetts voter shake his head in astonishment. The fact that it doesn't may be the most disturbing aspect of the Kerry story.
