I'm glad you and your sophisticated ilk are available to set us straight about how a Secretary of State should express his views. When I was young it was improper to say the word "stupid" at all. Now, of course, just about anything goes in prime time, and a Secretary of State sees no reason to conduct himself with any intellect or decorum.
So Boehner encourages the Senate to get off its a$$, and Kerry schools the Germans about our right to be stupid. I just don't think these statements advances the causes of humankind.
