A friend and I have developed a new theory to explain John Kerry's claim to the secret endoresment of anonymous foreign leaders. See if this sounds plausible.
As is well known, Democrats - caring and compassionate lot that they are - are very concerned with the issues surrounding our nation's growing mental health crisis. And in their concern, Democrats running for office sometimes pay goodwill visits to mental health care facilities, where they discuss the important "kitchen table" issues like Social Security, healthcare, unemployment and the Kyoto Treaty, with the residents of those facilities.
It must have been during one of these campaign stops that John Kerry was approached by Napoleon Bonaparte, and assured of the little corporal's fervent support in the upcoming presidential contest. It is still unclear whether the Senator acceded to Napoleon's request that, should he unseat President Bush this November, Kerry would intercede in favor of an International Criminal Court pardon for the former French leader.
