I realize we’re in a period of know-nothingism and us inattentive dopes out here in Kornfield Kounty just gave an old-school beatdown to John Kerry’s liberal vision for an America everyone has to live in except the elite hypocrites who designed it, but is it too much to ask that he let go of the bitterness long enough to crack open his wife’s checkbook and settle a tax debt he promised to pay over three months ago?
It’s been more than three months since we first told you about Capt. John Kerry’s high-seas tax dodge on his new $7 million yacht, Isabel, and the town of Nantucket still doesn’t have a check from the senior senator!
You may recall that Kerry lowered the flag and surrendered in July, agreeing to pony up more than $400,000 to cover state taxes on the toney tub. Mr. Teresa Heinz broke out the checkbook four days after the Track set off a furious tempest with our report that he had purchased the 76-foot floating palace and ported her in Rhode Island, thus depriving the commonwealth of its pound of flesh.
Kerry’s flack Jodi Seth told us the senator hasn’t paid because he hasn’t received a bill.
Back in July it didn’t sound as if Kerry was going to wait to be billed:
“We’ve reached out to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue and made clear that, whether owed or not, we intend to pay the equivalent taxes as if the boat’s home port were currently in Massachusetts,” Kerry said. “That payment is being made promptly.”
That’s using the definition of “Prompt” from the political, not standard, dictionary:
1. A promise done, performed, delivered, etc., at once or without delay only after somebody calls you on it a second or maybe third time.
2. see #1.

WH: Iran payment a ‘tough diplomatic strategy’ — State Dept: Hey, if you go to Iran, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get taken hostage

Historic transparency! State Dept doesn’t think timing of Iran cash delivery & hostage release is any of our business

Uh huh: WH says $400 million delivered to Iran on day prisoners freed was ‘coincidence’ and not ransom
