In Defense of Stupidity

Secretary of State Kerry told the Germans we have a right to be stupid. Thanks, John. Way to represent us.

Hell, given that he was recently a Senator, Kerry should have explained that we have parliamentary procedures to facilitate stupidity!

The Senate on Tuesday voted to confirm former Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, overcoming a fierce campaign by some GOP lawmakers to block President Barack Obama's nominee.

Hagel's nomination, which required support from just a majority of the chamber, passed 58-41.

So while Kerry boasted of our commitment to freedom of speech, his former colleagues were making sure that our ability to defend freedom abroad is curtailed.

Thanks, guys!
