Listening to John Kerry interrogate Condoleeza Rice at her confirmation hearing would be a hoot if it didn’t go on for so long. Kerry’s funniest one-liner was that Arab leaders told him their generous offers of help in Iraq were being ignored by the Bush administration. And he delivered it without giggling. Another funny line was when “John the Good” informed us about what Sunnis think. His Arabic was impeccable.
