The junior senator from Massachusetts chided the populace and the president for the situation in Lebanon:

“If I was president, this wouldn’t have happened,” said Kerry during a noon stop at Honest John’s bar and grill in Detroit’s Cass Corridor. (Detroit News, 7/23/06)

What a wonderful straight line. “I don’t know, Sir, why wouldn’t this have happened if he was [sic] president?”

Any takers?
