One of the perks of going to school in the political hub of the Western World is that the place attracts somewhat more than its fair share of high profile political figures. Look who came to speak in Gaston Hall today:
John Kerry i.e. the guy that the majority of American voters believe is less capable of leading their country than this joker:
Oh dear. Did I accidentally put a picture of a monkey in place of one of George W. Bush, with the inference being that said President has little more value in the White House than a chimp? Guffaw. Guffaw. Guffaw. Am I original or what? That being said, you try a google image search for "chimp" and see how many results you get that include him. Also, why not try searching for Bush and see how many monkey pictures you get.
Anyway JK, who lives just down the road on O St. was here to talk about American foreign policy and the American exit strategy for Iraq. He didn't really have anything desperately insteresting to say but he seemed intelligent, coherent and genuine. Maybe that's why they didn't vote for him.
