Kerry riffs on tea party 

Why the long face?        (ap photo)

President Obama was in Boston Saturday headlining a rally for Gov. Deval Patrick, followed by a party fundraiser. At the Hines Convention Center, Sen. John Kerry (so very!) warmed up the crowd with a few thoughts on the tea party movement.

From the pool report:

“You got Sharron Angle out there in Nevada… She wants to phase out Social Security. You got Joe Miller up there in Alaska. He thinks Social Security and Medicare and unemployment benefits are unconstitutional. … You’ve got Carly Fiorina saying all this talk about climate change is just a whole lot of fuss about the weather…” He made a crack about Christine O’Donnell thinks she can “wave her wand and this will all disappear.” “These people are coming at you folks.” As for Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, he “says Americans ought to be reeducated about the dangers of government.”

After that, James Taylor sang "Sweet Baby James."
