Responding to the widespread derision of State Department spokeschick Marie Harf's assertion that ISIS can best be defeated by creating job opportunities and encouraging neck-slicing radical teenagers to "start a business" rather than "pick up an AK-47," John Kerry has entered the fray to explain what she meant for those of us too stupid to understand nuance.
"Terrorists don't exist in a vacuum," Kerry said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece. "Especially if you change the bag on a regular basis."
Okay, he didn't say that last part, but it's still a good idea in case your home is teeming with radicalized Islamic dust mites.
However, regarding ISIS he did say that “success requires empowering leaders from Los Angeles to Lagos, Paris to Peshawar, and Bogotá to Baghdad to take the reins in this effort," once again establishing that in the war on terror, America's greatest weapon is alliteration.
Meanwhile, following Wednesday's cartoon and commentary criticizing Marie Harf, our liberal correspondent has insisted on an equal time rebuttal...
Almost, Lucy. It was actually Rudy Giuliani who said "I do not believe — and I know this is a horrible thing to say — but I do not believe that this President loves America."
“He doesn't love you. He doesn't love me," Giuliani continued (inadvertently revealing Obama to be the prophesied Anti-Barney). "He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up - to love this country."
Nor, sadly, were most of the young (and not so young) nitwits working in his administration.
