Hell of a Pinpoint Gaffe, John Kerry

Reason number 1,327,922 why the left hates Fox News: the MSM only catches Republicans on hot mics and call them on their rhetoric; leftist icons such as Kerry and his boss are always given a pass for their gaffes:

Fox News Sunday reports on a hot mic that caught John Kerry mocking Israel’s “pinpoint operation” against Hamas in Gaza:

“It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry was recorded as saying, in the middle of network interviews. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.”

“We’ve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”

Because if there’s anybody that the Israeli government will listen to — especially when he lurches leans on them in person, it’s John Kerry, who in recent months has called Israel an “apartheid state” during its Holocaust Remembrance Day, and reminded them — as if anyone could ever forget — that he’s served in Vietnam, where he was “attacked before by people using real bullets, not words, and I am not going to be intimidated.”

When John Podhoretz called Kerry on his apartheid slur in the New York Post, he quipped, “What are you going to do about it, tough guy? Windsurf over me?”

Oh, and speaking of pinpoint gaffes, “US Under Secretary of State apologizes after tweeting ‘United For Gaza’ hashtag.”
