Friendly Reception for Kerry?

Yep, that's the news. A friendly reception for John Kerry in the Senate hearings on his nomination to be Secretary of State.

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that just eight short years ago John Kerry was a communist traitor who sold out his brothers on Vietnam and posed naked on top of Hanoi's Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, in flagrante delicto with Jane Fonda [citation needed]?

Of course the wingnut media is already all over this like stink on shit. That was predictable -- even expected.

But surely there are still some red-blooded members of the "patriotic" party (aka the Rethugs) left in the Senate who can put a stop to this travesty. But maybe they are not so red-blooded and more red-eyed from their partying down with congressional interns and high-class prostitutes and others of that ilk.

And for that lack of red-bloodedness, may I suggest a vodka, Geritoltm and tomato juice cocktail, otherwise known as a Tired Bloody Mary...
