Another Reason Not to Vote for Kerry

William Perry?! I think I’d rather give Matthew Perry a shot. I hear he’s available.

If this is John Kerry’s idea of what a good SecDef would be. . . .

    If this is supposed to be, like, Plonk. Slam dunk, William Perry would just suck as Sec of Def, well, here’s his resume:

    I think it’s none too shabby…

    You’re nuts, in my humble opinion

  2. James Joyner says:

    I was just basing on the fact that he has already sucked at being SecDef.

    (Brilliant, nice, honorable guy. Lousy SecDef. Happens.)

  3. McGehee says:

    Was Perry SecDef when we retreated from Somalia with our collective tail between our legs?

    That would be a lot shabby, in my somewhat less humble opinion.

  4. Kevin Drum says:

    If you’re going to write this, don’t you at least owe us an explanation of why you think Perry sucked?

  5. dw says:

    Is it sad that I saw William Perry and thought that Kerry was considering a certain former Bears lineman?

  6. It’s ok, dw. I had the same thought.

  7. William “The Refrigerator” Perry as Sec Def?!

    I think if one counts George Bush as libertarian whilst the centre left in America as Kerry supporters; have a more Rawlsian new on redistribution, ‘justice as fairness’ one can picture the world more succinctly. For Nozick has inherently contradictory features in his theory which collapse under its own weight; as he often admits; the justice of rectification principle (justice as process), to qualify might need a short term difference principle, a so-called one-off thus advoates rawls in the short run! Anyone who believes that egotisticial individual rights are the key to understanding human existence has forgotten the word human in human, as on the war and elsewhere in neo-con foriegn policy they have also forgot ‘human’ -if they are just able to look to themselves- they might find the answers to the dilemma that has caused such pain and terror in our for kerry!
