WASHINGTON (BHN) - President Barack Obama nominated Sen. John Kerry (Retard-Mass) Friday to be his next secretary of state.
"He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training," Obama quipped, standing alongside Kerry at the White House. "He's proven over the years that he's just shy of being a full-fledged commie - he's a perfect fit for this administration." The White House later confirmed that the comment was meant as humor.
The 69-year-old Kerry is expected to be easily confirmed by his Senate colleagues, although the President and fellow Democrats' first choice had reportedly been Jane Fonda.
