John Kerry, 0 For 3

First he made a blunder-fest of a presidential run ...

And we know how that worked out.

Then he decided he'd master the universe with cap-and-trade legislation.

Uh, nix that.

So now he's channeling John Foster Dulles:

See "Sen. John Kerry has the perfect audition piece for the secretary of state job he appears to covet — the long-stalled Law of the Sea treaty."

See "Law of the Sea treaty sinks in Senate."

Darn.  Kiss that one goodbye too.

Me?  At this point I'm wondering what it would take to get the war hero President Environment Czar Secretary of State hapless beaner to sign on as Barack Obama's campaign manager.

Mitt could use all the help he can get.

Typical Of The Mainstream Press

One wonders at times why the Founding Fathers felt it necessary to outline in the Bill of Rights the marker that stipulates that Congress shall make no law that abridges the freedom of the press.  A freedom, one wonders, that might be jeopardized by the like of Charlie Rose?

I don't think so:
Charlie Rose did his best to avoid asking any tough questions during an interview of President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle that aired on Sunday's CBS Sunday Morning and Monday's CBS This Morning. Rose devoted over four straight minutes to the couple's summer vacation, family life, and marriage. He also touted the Democrat's ObamaCare law as "enormously successful," and wondered if it was his "proudest achievement in the first four years."
Good Lord. Edward R. Murrow must be rolling over in his grave.

When a Prosecutor Has No Case ...

... she makes up a new one.

This borders on the shameful, and is certainly unethical:
Witness alleges she was abused by suspect in Trayvon Martin killing
CNN

A woman has accused George Zimmerman, the man charged in the fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, of having sexually abused her for about a decade, beginning when she was 6 years old and he was 8.

"He would reach under the blankets and try to do things and I would try to push him off," said the woman, who is identified only as Witness 9 and whose account was released Monday in audio recordings that a judge ordered last week be made public.

"He was bigger and stronger and older. It was in front of everybody. And I don't know how I didn't say anything. But I just didn't know any better," she said.

CNN spoke to the woman's father, who said neither he nor any other member of the family would be speaking on the subject. The woman did not respond to a request for comment. [link]
Oh, the reporter was kind enough to add this:

"Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, released a statement Monday responding to the allegations. In it, he said his client was not yet 8 years old when the alleged abuse began ..."

Good grief.

What, you might ask, has this to do with 1st Degree Murder?

Nothing.

But then neither do the actions that took place on that suburban street in Sanford, Florida that day.

So the prosecutor in the case, with the willful assistance from the trial judge, takes the case in a whole different direction.

Sexual abuse?

Is this the United States of America? Can they do that and get away with it?
