Swift Boat for Truth

No, not that boat, although I’m sure it’s plenty fast.

Silly me for thinking I was the first one to notice this resemblance:

One was an incompetent boob who could barely put one boot in front of the other. The other played a Marine on TV and just married his same-sex partner:

The Boston Globe Announces Release of Kerry Biography as an E-Book as the Former MA Senator Becomes Secretary of State

Biography by current and former Globe journalists provides extensive background on Secretary of State’s personal, military, professional and political history

WHAT: JOHN F. KERRY: The Boston Globe Biography, a valuable resource to anyone eager to learn more about the country’s new Secretary of State, has been released for the first time as an easily accessible e-book. The extensive biography is based on a highly regarded series in The Boston Globe, augmented by years of additional reporting on the political icon by the journalists that knew him best and covered him most – Globe deputy Washington Bureau Chief Michael Kranish and former Globe reporters Brian C. Mooney and Nina J. Eason.

The biography was originally released by PublicAffairs Books during Kerry’s run at the presidency in 2004 and quickly became a New York Times and Washington Post bestseller. The book has received widespread critical acclaim, including a New York Times review that described how the book, “energetically fleshes out the details of Mr. Kerry’s life and career…a fascinating portrait.”

The book explores John Kerry’s background, his service in the military, his early legal and political career, and his legislative record, and offers an incisive, frank look at Kerry’s decades spent in the highest levels of government. It is important reading for anyone interested in the life of the man now poised to be the face of his country overseas.

A biography of an active politician by members of the media whose job it is (was) to hold him accountable, keep him honest?

Does it expose how a man who once claimed to live off his Senate salary, declared a fortune of $193 million? (His own, not his “second wife’s first husband’s trust fund”.)

Did these “journalists” interview their crosstown rival, Howie Carr, whose archives on Kerry (he calls him “Liveshot”) could fill a book of their own?


Shotgun Liveshot
Notice the finger on the trigger while looking at the camera.
Don’t go hunting with this guy…

I believe you mean huntin’, Howie.

As Howie wrote last week:

This is a great day for Massachusetts. This is the day John Forbes “Liveshot” Kerry stops being our senator.

The governor, who was born in Illinois, is replacing the senator who was born in Colorado with an interim senator who was born in North Carolina who will serve on Capitol Hill with the “senior” senator who was born in Oklahoma.

Massachusetts once offered the likes of John and Samuel Adams and Paul Revere to its countrymen. Today, it’s the likes of John Kerry, Crockagawea, and Mo What’s-his-name.

Question: can statehood be revoked?

    BTL,
    That is the best Separated At Birth set that I have ever seen. Are you completely sure that they are not the same guy? Have John Kerry and Jim Nabors ever been seen together?
