Retarded Politician of the Week

It's early in the week, but some nut-jobs get to the head of the pack early on. Case in point, Senator John "Citizen Kohn" Kerry, D-People's Republic of Massachusetts, who can't open his mouth without crap coming out.

Citizen Kohn can't seem to bring himself to protect American citizens from Mexican drug violence spilling into the U.S. He says that calling out the National Guard to protect the U.S. side of the border is "premature and possibly counterproductive". Translation: The National Guard might prevent new Democratic voters from entering the U.S.

While leaving U.S. citizens to the tender mercies of Mexican drug gangs, Citizen Kohn nonetheless is ready to attack what he sees as the problem. What does Citizen Kohn propose? He wants to ban guns. But not in Mexico, where the problem actually has taken root. Citizen Kohn wants to ban guns in the United States. He again wants to ban what he has again misnamed "assault rifles."

Nevermind that "assault rifles" are full-auto or selective fire and are illegal in the U.S. except for specially licensed firearms owned or manufactured prior to the aptly misnamed Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986. Nevermind the fact that very few firearms confiscated in Mexico are from the U.S. Nevermind the fact that any true "assault rifles" which actually made their way from the U.S. to Mexico were most likely provided by the U.S. government to the Mexican government and later stolen. Nevermind the fact that Mexico is a sovereign state with its own military and law enforcement which should be handling its own internal problems. Nevermind the fact that Mexico has one of the most stringent gun-control schemes in the Western Hemisphere, yet gun violence goes on unabated. Nevermind the fact that the U.S. government refuses to honor its own laws to control border crossings and provide effective enforcement of immigration laws. Nevermind the fact that law-abiding gun owners are not the problem but would be abandoned and left defenseless by the likes of Citizen Kohn and his gun-grabbing cohorts.

Here's the story that pushed Citizen Kohn to the top.

It is early, but Senator John "Citizen Kohn" Kerry, D-People's Republic of Massachusetts, has clinched the dubious honor of Retarded Politician of the Week.
