Ronald Reagan: “We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness.”

John Kerry: “I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are.”
***

John Kerry, the always inspiring U.S. secretary of state, was in Vienna, Austria talking about what annoys him (transcript via Jeryl Bier at The Weekly Standard):

…I was privileged to speak to the graduating class of Yale this year, and it was particularly a pleasure because it happened to turn out to be, literally, I hate to say it, 48 years to the day that I was privileged to speak as a graduating senior to my own class. And I talked to them about sort of the world we’re in right now, but at the end I tried to remind them all, which I remind you of, we are – I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are – not because we’re not exceptional, but because it’s kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional, a lot of other places do exceptional things.

Translation: “Lots of other countries accept Teresa’s American Express Centurion Card!”
