John Kerry for Secretary of Defense? Why not Jane Fonda?

This can’t be real. Just some trial balloon to make the next name floated seem more realistic. I mean, nothing says a Commander in Chief loves his troops like sticking a reviled war protester who allegedly threw his medals over the White House fence at an anti-war protest (the ones he allegedly didn’t rightfully earn) in as Secretary of Defense.

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus.

Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

I try to keep this blog free of profanity, but you gotta be sh*ttin’ me?

I guess the left being hard up for a “War Hero” and all just can’t pass up the chance to grab whatever they’re offered. If Kerry is the “trial balloon” I can hardly wait to see who the real pick will be. As was said elsewhere, “I can’t think of anyone less respected by the troops“.

    If he does get the nomination, I would hope that the Rs will filibuster it. Same for Rice. Unfortunately they probably won’t, being led by McCain and Graham.

    Commented and used no swear words. It was difficult.

    Surely you jest… Aren’t you?

  4. “Only 120 days in-country and he puts himself in for a Purple Heart for scratches we wouldn’t bother to report to the corpsman. This guy was punching his ticket and used a loophole [three Purple Heart wounds and you got to leave Vietnam before your required 12 month tour of duty was up] in the regulations to get out early. What a disgrace!
