The man in the mirror

Count Mark Steyn as another American unamused by Kerry's recent statement belittling the Iraqi Prime Minister - "Kerry’s looking for American failure – and he’s it":
What a small, graceless man Kerry is. The nature of adversarial politics in a democratic society makes George W. Bush his opponent. But it was entirely Kerry's choice to expand the field, to put himself on the other side of Allawi and the Iraqi people. Given his frequent boasts that he knows how to reach out to America's allies, it's remarkable how often he feels the need to insult them: Britain, Australia, and now free Iraq. But, because this pampered cipher has floundered for 18 months to find any rationale for his candidacy other than his indestructible belief in his own indispensability, Kerry finds himself a month before the election with no platform to run on other than American defeat. He has decided to co-opt the jihadist death-cult, the Baathist dead-enders, the suicide bombers and other misfits and run as the candidate of American failure. This would be shameful if he weren't so laughably inept at it.
Well put.

I concur. Very well put. Captain's Quarter's is a blog site that has reported more on this phenomona of Scary Kerry (who claims to be better able to broker allies' aid, while all the while undermining & insulting the ones we have), as has Townhall's Charles Krauthammer in an articulate piece titled "Undermining Australia". Both speak about Scary Kerry sending his sister to Australia to do his dirty work, in undermining John Howard's re-election efforts. When I read what they are doing, these fellow Americans, it makes me angry & ashamed. Where is the honor in the Very Scary Kerry? (Sorry, couldn't resist!:) Clearly, there is none, no honor at all.
