Video: John Kerry — what, him worry?

“Secretary of State John Kerry,” writes the Associated Press, “shrugged off widespread criticism in Israel of his efforts to broker a cease-fire between the Israelis and Hamas, saying he ‘will not take a second seat to anyone’ in his devotion to Israel’s protection.”

Who knew Kerry had so much moxie? Here’s a guy who slept through 25 years of Senate sessions, is appointed by some clueless schlemiel to a cabinet post that places him three heartbeats away from the presidency, and makes such a mess out of his attempts to cobble together a deal between a sovereign ally and a group of bloodthirsty Islamofacists that even veteran lefty David Ignatius takes him to task for it. And here Kerry is, announcing to the world how unfazed he is by the harsh words from … well — everybody.
