Wylie Coyote Kerry

Poor John Kerry. Like Wylie Coyote who can never catch his Roadrunner, Kerry's political pursuits lately have made him l'objet de ridicule in all but far left circles.

Today he called for a filbuster of the Alito nomination... from Switzerland! Probably hired the Ricola Swiss Hornblowers to sound the call.

Rove couldn't have scripted it better.

From the Washington Post Online:

"Continuing to threaten a filibuster, even after it is crystal clear that Democrats don't have the necessary votes to sustain their obstruction, is needless, strange and at odds with many of their fellow Democrats," Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) said in a statement. Some Republicans poked fun at Kerry -- the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, who may make another White House bid -- for allowing others to announce the filibuster plan earlier in the day while he was attending an economic conference in Davos, Switzerland.
