KERRY'S FOREIGN ENDORSEMENTS: No link

KERRY’S FOREIGN ENDORSEMENTS: No link yet, but Drudge has an item on his home page that says:

KERRY: NO FOREIGN ENDORSEMENTS, PLEASE… Kerry Foreign Policy Advisor Rand Beers issued the following statement today: ‘…It is simply not appropriate for any foreign leader to endorse a candidate in America’s presidential election. John Kerry does not seek, and will not accept, any such endorsements’…

Meanwhile, as it turns out, Kerry’s already got one–from former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, complete with an anti-Semitic slur in it. Mohamad, you’ll remember, was the fellow who told a summit of Islamic leaders last October that “Jews rule the world by proxy” and the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims should unite, using nonviolent means for a “final victory.” (President Bush issued Mohamad a stern rebuke shortly thereafter.)

Given some of the places where Teresa Heinz has been spending her money, and her generally lackadaisical views on evil in the world, such an endorsement from Mohamad doesn’t seem all that surprising.

UPDATE: Here’s another! Neville Chamberlain will no doubt be endorsing Sen. Kerry posthumously.
