I heard that John Kerry was going on an international listening tour, but maybe he didn’t get the memo. He’s been doing a lot of talking. While in Berlin, he talked about himself, and also the American people. He said we have every right to be stupid. By golly, he defends that right. Good thing, or he wouldn’t be Secretary of State and Obama wouldn’t have gotten a second term.
Kerry’s trip to Berlin, his first as secretary of state, is part of a nine-country dash through Europe and the Middle East.
He is using the visit as an opportunity to praise religious and political tolerance in the U.S. and encourage other countries to seek the same freedoms.
‘In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be,’ he said. ‘And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be. And we tolerate that – we somehow make it through that.
How big of him, to work through that.
