John Kerry just made a Godfather Part II reference in his testimony. I did not see that coming.—

Groan. Senator John Kerry made an awkward “joke” at the start of his Secretary of State confirmation hearing this morning.
Members of the media valiantly tried to make it appear funny.
Sen. Kerry makes 'Godfather II' joke at Sec of State confirmation hearing. Hopefully later he'll say "My offer is this: Nothing."—

Kerry with a great reference to Godfather II, which he says he watched the other night. Beware of appearances by his "long lost brother."—

Kerry says he watched Godfather II the other night. "If someone shows up with my long-lost brother, all bets are off, folks." Well done.—

Er. Most don’t agree; the alleged joke totally falls flat.
Awww, no one laughed at John Kerry's Godfather joke.—

Kerry's Godfather 2 reference made no sense, but nice effort.—

John Kerry begins bid for sec of state with some humor, intros his family. Not dry at all, albeit awkward with a reference to Godfather 2—
