Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Bad News for Sleepy Joe

 

Joe Biden got an endorsement from John Kerry today, a former Senator and Secretary of State. Some people still remember him. The value of Kerry’s endorsement to Biden falls somewhere between that of Neville Chamberlin’s and the foreign minister of Iran’s.

    Kerry’s probably lobbying for the No 2 spot, transforming a Biden nomination from a disaster to a major disaster.

    No one has yet mentioned that John Kerry served in Vietnam. Careless of my own personal safety, I’m throwing myself into the breach.

    I read or heard somewhere that Biden has an old school view that he can win if just racks up enough endorsements from establishment figures whose views people despise. If he can just get enough of these endorsements, he figures he’s a shoe in. If he reminds everyone of all the reasons why they do not want the Democrats in charge of foreign policy, domestic policy, or anything else, for a long time, he can win.

    I’ve already endorsed Joe Biden. Kerry’s just piling on at this point.

    John Kerry served in Vietnam.

    He did?

    This makes me think of when “Best of the Web Today” by James Taranto in the WSJ was must reading.

    “And John Kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam,. . .

    I’m not saying I would have voted for Biden anyway, because I wouldn’t have, but a Kerry endorsement almost makes me want to register Dem so I can vote against him in the primary too.

    Kerry family traditions run deep. While Kerry was waiting for McCain to sign off on the close of the Senate POW-MIA inquiry so that economic relations between the US and Vietnam could be opened, Kerry’s cousin (a member of the Forbes family) coincidentally and like totally by surprise had been tapped by Hanoi for large development contracts as soon as relations were renewed. I’ll bet you could have knocked over those commies over with a feather when they discovered that there was a family connection to the second-most important US Senator in charge of resolving the POW-MIA issue that was the remaining roadblock to trade. Small world, eh?

    I think Warren is scaring the wealthy Democrats in Massachusetts. :-) Obama endorsed Patrick last week; Kerry endorsed Biden this week. Poor Elizabeth. :-)

    I wouldn’t be so sure a Kerry endorsement would hurt Biden. Kerry almost won in 2004, in a country that later gave Hillary the popular vote. There is a huge market for the cr** stuff they offer.

    I don’t think it’s really a plus or minus at this point. I don’t think that anyone who supports Biden is going to leave because of Kerry, but I also don’t see anyone who’s out there waiting for the critical John Kerry endorsement to help them make their decision either.
