John Kerry has been Secretary of State for more than five months now, but he’s been occupying a relatively low-key role until this week, when the historic uprising in Egypt thrust him (and his yacht) into the spotlight. We’ve already seen the #JohnKerryYachtNames hashtag take off in tribute, but with the State Department now backtracking on its claim that any sightings of Kerry afloat while Egypt burned were “completely inaccurate,” maybe it’s time for a new #StateDeptMotto as well.

    Good grief….. Funnies aside, we have lost our country.

    The media is sick……… Every story I say to myself, “What if this _____ happened under George W Bush” and what the headlines would be..

    After all, we had 4-5% unemployment under GWB and media reported a ‘disaster”

    Barry is 7++++ and no biggie. Barry is great………….. God I am scared.
