TOM MAGUIRE DEFENDS JOHN KERRY: “I yield to no one in my low regard for John Kerry. However, in his own bumbling way, Kerry seems to be restating the US position on North Korea, which rejects accepting them as a nuclear state, and reprising a past intelligence assessment he offered while in Seoul last April.” If so, it’s kind of like Gerald Ford’s denial of Soviet domination in Poland — Ford wasn’t denying the fact, but rather emphasizing the United States’ view that it was illegitimate, but being Gerald Ford he spoke, well, about as badly as John Kerry. Smart Diplomacy!TM
