John Kerry Confirmed By Senate With Only Three ‘No’ Votes


John Kerry’s confirmation as Secretary of State sailed through the Senate today. The vote was 94 to 3. The only Republicans who voted against him were Senators Ted Cruz, James Inhofe and John Cornyn. But Obama calls the Republicans “absolutists”? Good grief, they’re lap dogs.

According to WaPo Kerry will officially take over for Hillary Clinton on Friday.

The only positive thing about this is that he’ll no longer be a Senator. So there’s that.
