    It makes me sick that his daughter is having a baby. Just making more nasty and thoughtless people to join the masses of arogant snobs.

    Kerry should retire and help babysit his grandkid.It’s not like he actually does anything in Washington.The same goes for Markey,Tierney and the rest of the useless Liberals.By the way Senator Kerry: Tell that useless dungheap Holder to do his job and arrest the Black Panthers for inciting a race riot!
