1. I figured they'd Benghazi this, since it's a State Dept. issue--they're just a dog with a bone.

3. He pulled a George Costanza, trying on his responses to Hillary from yesterday, to Kerry.

Marco Rubio was also nauseating. As was Corker.

5. Rubio spent all his time showcasing what he considers his AWESOME

foreign policy chops. He covered the world according to Marco, and then gave Kerry two minutes to respond. Total self-promoting assclown.

9. That dude is an ass: "Look what I know"

A series of simplistic questions strung together to create the impression of broad knowledge.

I loved Kerry's response, big:

Kerry: Middle East Experiencing ‘Biggest Upheaval’ In Region Since The Ottoman Empire

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said at his secretary of state confirmation hearing Thursday that the Middle East is experiencing the "biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the Ottoman Empire."

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/kerry-middle-east-experiencing-biggest-upheaval-in-region

That should leave Rubio the lesser scratching his head for a few days.

20. He made absolutely no sense and left Kerry speechless. Kerry responded that he'll "get back to him"

on his questions.

Rubio said some nonsensical shit about Bush removing North Korea from the "axis of evil". None of what he said made a lick of sense and left Kerry flabbergasted.

22. I think he mentioned Bush taking N. Korea off the state sponsor of terror list. Or something.

It was like a T-shirt cannon firing random unconnected foreign policy ideas. Kerry didn't know where to start.

23. Marco Rubio struck me to be like a ranting college student, and Kerry a caring Professor

who told him to come by for office hours, so he can explain it all to him. Meanwhile, he needs to get back to his lecture.

Anyone who thinks Rubio is a creditable presidential candidate clearly has not seem him in action in the Senate. He is completely unimpressive, playing in the minor leagues at best.

https://twitter.com/JNSmall/status/294492105005473792

Kerry: Senator, in all fairness, I think we do know what happened. There was a briefing and tapes, which we all saw-those of us who went 2 it


Ha, ha, ha, ha! The dude couldn't even bother to get briefed about Benghazi with actual tapes, but now he is positively OUTRAGED!

Kerry taking down Johnson, who demands to know "what happened" in Benghazi. Kerry elicits: Johnson failed to attend a Benghazi briefing.


And we now have video from TPM:

27. He will never get over the fact that he lost an election. He is more upset about getting beaten by a

black man than he was about Bush/KKKarl Rove's racist stunt against him in the 2000 SC primary. The man is a despicable human being. He was once a man of honor in how he served his country. And now I can't stand to look at him.

18. John McCain is the SCUM of the earth. He asks Kerry what happened to Security...

Listen asshole, your Rethug colleagues CUT the fucking budget for Security.

Then, this asshole has a nerve to decry the phenomenon of rape in some ME countries. And yet this is the same guy who wouldn't protect the right of women to have an abortion should they become pregnant as a result of that rape.

What a despicable man John McCain has become.

26. McCain also did not attend that classified hearing Kerry alluded to to Johnson earlier.

All hot air, these Republican Senators.

I have to say the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is no longer a premier committee. Think about when Biden, Lugar, Kerry, Obama, and Feingold were all in there together. Now look at it.

28. Still some good people with Cardin and Boxer, but I agree. Even the Democrats serving on the

committee are lightweight compared to the great minds of Kerry, Lugar, Feingold, Biden, Bob Graham and Hillary.

Bob Menendez is now the chair? Really? I like Bob a lot, but he doesn't strike me as a very influential chairman, not like what we've had before.

29. Worse than merely cutting the security budgets ...

the gop house refused to allow the State Deparment from shifting funds from Iraq to elsewhere.

The gop clamps off the fire hose and wonders why those actually working can't put the fire out.

40. "Mansplaining" was a word I read on Twitter.

Kerry mansplaining the way the world works to Paul Rand.

Plus he said we "funded bin Laden" for which there is zero evidence to support the notion.
