They’re the Rolling Stones with out the roadies. Or the nice music. Or any music, really.
The Strolling Bones reunion tour.
John Kerry and Joe Biden are getting the band again collectively once more.
Collectively, they’ve been getting issues unsuitable in Washington for practically 100 years. Actually, two of the dumbest individuals on earth … however they do love to listen to themselves converse!
Droning on and on and on.
Two ridiculous males for which Washington was designed. Neither might run the shoe division at Macy’s — which means they’re extra incompetent that Al Bundy.
However in Washington? They’re titans! Geniuses! Two of essentially the most revered overseas coverage minds of their era!
To be honest, Joe Biden and John Kerry do present value. It may be complicated if anyone is barely mildly silly. As a result of somebody who’s mildly silly will often be proper about one thing. Like a blind squirrel.
However John Kerry and Joe Biden are, actually, unsuitable about every thing all the time. They don’t seem to be even damaged clocks which might be proper twice a day.
They’re just like the brief sellers in a bull market. Simply keep watch over them and you’ll all the time know the place the pitfalls and failures are. Stick them in a fowl cage and canopy them in yellow feathers and you’ve got a few canaries for each authorities coverage coal mine.
They’re the Magic Eight balls of unhealthy judgement.
Joe Biden and John Kerry, ought to we invade Iraq? Sure! Then you realize it will likely be a disastrous quagmire.
Joe Biden and John Kerry, now that we dedicated American troops to Iraq and are shedding, ought to we ship in reinforcements? No!
Or as Monsieur Kerry memorably boasted, “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”
How dumb do you need to be to get either side of that sentence solely unsuitable?
But in Washington, they’re a few reigning geniuses happening 50 years now. Every.
Even former President Barack Obama finally found out how dumb Mr. Biden is.
Hey, Joe, ought to we ship in Navy SEALs to kill Osama bin Laden?
Okay, ordered Mr. Obama. Ship within the SEALs.
Chaos, bloodshed and celebration ensues.
For so long as Mr. Kerry has been screwing issues up in Washington, he has been blabbering about what’s the key to peace within the Center East.
“There will be no advanced and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace,” he lectured in 2016 as Mr. Obama’s secretary of state.
“Everybody needs to understand that,” he droned. “That is the hard reality.”
Till Donald Trump got here alongside and shattered that “hard reality,” crafting peace offers between Israel and three of its Arab foes that for over a half-century had been vowing to obliterate Israel. That deal was reached, after all, with out Mr. Kerry’s beloved Palestinians.
Each election since 2008 has been a fierce rejection of the standing quo in Washington. On this previous election, Joe Biden refused to even marketing campaign or reply questions, rendering any mandate he may declare on precise points totally mute.
So he’s bringing the entire band again collectively, reminding the entire world why we elected Donald Trump within the first place.
