Say What? The John Kerry edition

News & Politics

Rumsfeld, Cheney, and the merry band of GOP loons in Congress can be relied on to provide high-quality fodder for my "Say What?" segments. But this time around, John Kerry leaves them in the dust with this Face the Nation quote:

KERRY: And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children...breaking sort of the customs of the -- of -- the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not

KERRY: ...Iraqis should be doing that. Iraqis should be doing that.
Wait a minute, we throw out Saddam precisely for the privilege of terrorizing Iraqis ourselves. And now we should just hand it right back to them? Talk about a waste of time and lots and lots of money -- and, oh yes, let's not forget all those dead people.
