Why Does It Seem So Completely in Character

…that Sen. Christmas N. Cambodia is doing all this

Sen. Kerry calls for filibuster of Alito
Unclear if Massachusetts Democrat has votes needed to block nominee

…by phone from SWITZERLAND? While, no doubt, wearing his toasty magic ski thinking cap. Farfegnugen!*
*commonly used when someone says something really fast or in a language that you do not understand
Person one: Du bist ein scrotochupar!
Person two: Fleuven Hueven Fargegnugen

UPDATE: It’s come to my attention that CNN has completely revamped the story I first linked to as it broke, 5 hours ago. Here is the original report I was using:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Sen. John Kerry has decided to support a filibuster to block the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, CNN’s Congressional Correspondent Ed Henry reported Thursday.
Kerry, in Davos, Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum, was marshaling support in phone calls during the day, Henry said.
He announced his decision Wednesday to a group of Democratic senators, urging they join him, Henry said. Kerry also has the support of his fellow Massachusetts senator, Democrat Edward Kennedy.
Some senior Democrats said they are worried that the move could backfire.
Republicans need 60 votes to overturn a filibuster.

Thanks to Pardon My English for the screen grab I wish I’d thought of. The fact that the Sen. is in Switzerland has now been relegated to the middle of the article, with “marshaling the phones” nowhere to be found. I guess someone else found it less amusing/ironic/typically dense than I and did some reconstructive surgery.
Oooh, now I understand why. I wasn’t the only one to notice. Drudge is particularly snarky with his headline. (My dorky Kerry picture is much better though.)

    I’m sure he consulted with the French before making the statement.

    It’ll never happen. The microphone would wrap itself around his turkey looking neck and strangle him.

    Senator Kerry von Nitwt has me gagging. As I’ve seen suggested elsewhere, all this dweeb wants to do is stroke the hard left for more cash, so that Kerry can feed his own ego by campaigning in 2008.
    The good news is that Kerry will likely continue to fracture the Democratic Party until it is totally non-relevant, or, as a better scenario, the surviving smart and sane Democrats kick the leftard cretins out, and bring back some semblance of a responsible national party.
    We’ll see.
