John Kerry: A case for staying out of the way?

johnkerryI don’t know. Do I really care that Secretary of State John Kerry was on his yacht the Isabel, colloquially known as Heinz 58 (just kidding), when the Egyptian coup went down this week?

I mean, wouldn’t it be better if all of Barack Obama’s cabinet secretaries stayed out of the way and everybody were just allowed to do their jobs?

Yeah, it’s a bit of a libertarian concept but stay with me here.

Kids with cystic fibrosis would probably get lungs faster. Border Patrol agents would arguably be safer. U.S. ambassadors in hostile Islamist countries? Life expectancy goes way up.


There is definitely an argument to be made here for loading up the cooler with good old godless Sam Adam’s beer, breaking out the Christopher Cross and hoisting the mainsail.

Secretary Kerry may just be a hero for sitting this one out, if he hadn’t lied about it. Like in Vietnam. No embassy personnel are dead. Yet. Right? Just musing.


A spokeswoman for Secretary of State John Kerry reversed herself on Friday, now saying that Kerry was — indeed — sailing in Massachusetts as Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was ousted in a military coup.

“While he was briefly on his boat on Wednesday, Secretary Kerry worked around the clock all day including participating in the president’s meeting with his national security council,” the spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, told The Boston Globe.

On Wednesday, Psaki denied a CBS News report on Twitter that the nation’s top diplomat had been seen boarding his yacht, Isabel, off Nantucket just hours after Morsi — Egypt’s first democratically elected leader — was deposed.

“Any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate,” Psaki said, seeking to quell any notion that Kerry was not on the job. [Newsmax]

The coverup may be really bigger than the crime. I mean, so he wasn’t on the yacht before he was on the yacht. Probably a good thing, right?

Hey, is it just me or does John Kerry’s face grow exponentially longer and more two-dimensional by the day?

Okay, forget I brought up that last part.

    He would tell a lie even if the truth was better. It’s in his DNA
