Kerry Gets It (Partly) Right

John F'n Kerry, who served in Vietnam, paid his yacht-taxes and complains.

Kerry singled out attacks on an energy deal he was negotiating with Republicans, which fell apart amid criticism of an emissions-trading program. Some 20 Senate candidates are now opposing the proposed deal in their campaigns.

“It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” said a clearly exasperated Kerry. “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.

That last sentence-and-a-half was correct, retrospectively; Obama did get elected on a fact- and truth-free platform featuring cheap-seat politics and playing to the lowest common denominator.

And that applies to the AGW fairy tales, too.

What? You say that's not what Kerry meant?
