Grab your Dramamine - Kerry a'sway agin...

Kerry criticizes NSA wiretaps

Ummmmm... not news here. Hardly, in fact. Instead I offer you a guffaw for us politico-watchers, weary of the slime and mud fest permeating our daily fare. What could possibly be more amusing than again watching Kerry open his mouth merely to remove his foot and insert the other?

Sen. John Kerry yesterday called the National Security Agency's program to eavesdrop on terror suspects illegal, but he said he will continue to support its funding.

"It is a violation of law," said the Massachusetts Democrat and former presidential contender, who also backed former Vice President Al Gore in calling for a special investigation.

"I agree that we ought to have a special counsel investigate. I agree that we ought to have an independent commission because this Congress has proven itself unwilling to do what's necessary to perform its responsibilities," Mr. Kerry said.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week," Mr. Kerry was asked by host George Stephanopoulos,
"If you think this is a clear violation of the law, why not move to cut off funding for the program?"

"That's premature," Mr. Kerry responded.

Well now... it's perfectly clear, or it isn't, right? Uh... the in Kerryland, I guess.
