John Kerry’s Ostentatiously Hurt Feelings

My column for the New York Post is on the continuing spectacle of John Kerry getting offended by what Israelis say about him and making a public show of it—and how speaking in his defense has become a strange habit for the administration of a nation vastly more powerful and important than the one that keeps hurting his feelings.

Excerpt:

He’s a big boy. But there are those who seem to feel otherwise, that Kerry is a fragile and tender reed in need of delicate care — people who work for and with him. Not to mention Kerry himself.

Over the course of the past year, on several occasions, Kerry and other staffers have taken to whining — not sure there’s a nicer word — over how unfairly he’s being written and talked about in Israel.

In January, after Israel’s defense minister was twice quoted speaking disparagingly about Kerry’s peace-process efforts and his nuclear diplomacy with Iran, Kerry actually called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to complain.

The rest is here.

    John Kerry, a pathetic & sour loser if things don’t go his way!

  2. JOE MAHONEY says:

    Can anyone think of Henry Kissenger getting upset over such trifles? John Kerrys’ only talent has been the touting of John Kerry truly an oversold good of low quality.
