  •  Harmonic ironic choke (13+ / 0-)

    When Kerry said that and I choked up my hot coffee this morning I felt at one with the world in a most ironic sense.

    It felt as if my visceral reaction was part of a moment, a billion OMG-Did-He-Really-Just-Say-Thats vibrating and resonating into one humongous harmonic global Om.

      And speaking of hubris, did Kos write this diary a week or so after essentially endorsing HRC?  He really wants, or will accept without protest, a president with no moral authority on the international stage?

      Back to Kerry, though: is anything more ironic than the man who became famous by saying: "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake" somehow being SoS as we waste lives and time trying for peace with honor in Afghanistan?

      To avoid starting dumb wars, punish the dumb people who vote for them.

        ...and even today Kerry also said this isa  time for diplomacy, rather than the standard league of warmongers - McCain, Graham, Crystol, et al - reflexively agitating and baiting the President to be more "aggressive". On the AUMF Kerry and Clinton also called for diplomacy and neither made a decision to invade Iraq.

          authority to do anything involving invading anybody was idiotic.  Are you more comfortable with enabling Bush to invade Iraq, and reaped the benefits, and none of the tragedies, thereof.

      •  Careful, Kos has already loudly endorsed Hillary. (2+ / 0-)

        Wonder how he can keep such an endorsement in place, given that Hillary too voted to invade Iraq, and unlike Kerry, as to this day yet to admit she was wrong to do so.
