John Kerry: In America you have the right to be stupid

John Kerry is on his first trip overseas as secretary of state. Fresh off his diplomatic visit to Kyrzakhstan (which I believe is northeast of Moronica), Kerry is taking it upon himself to remind the world — in this case, Germany — what makes America great:

Kerry addressed a town hall meeting Tuesday in a packed Internet cafe during a nine-country dash through Europe and the Middle East. The trip is Kerry’s first as secretary of state.

At the town hall, Kerry urged Germans to be tolerant, noting that in America, ‘you have a right to be stupid.’

‘In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be,’ he said. ‘And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be. And we tolerate that – we somehow make it through that.

Kerry obviously has his sights set on being America’s answer to Yakov Smirnoff (sample one-liner from Kerry’s routine on his current I Was a US Senator world comedy tour: “In my America, you don’t vote for idiot — idiot vote for you!”).

Yes, John Kerry believes Americans have a right to be stupid — which is why he has never tried to legislate behavior ::pause for laughter::.

“Death to America” is the Iranian job-creation equivalent of Solyndra, according to Obama

Remember when the WH promised nuke deal meant Iran would be ‘straight outta uranium’? Good times (a Sunday open thread)
