John Kerry Would’ve Commenced Retreating Yesterday

Last month John Kerry, in his usual pompous fashion, stated that the US should immediately start to withdraw our troops from Iraq unless the Iraqis “put together an effective unity government” by May 15, last Sunday. The Democratic Daily had the story the last month. I wonder if Mr. Kerry has a servant follow him around clapping coconuts together while he yells things like “run away, run away!”

The final line refers to these and other lines in Monty Python’s Holy Grail:

Minstrel: [singing] Brave Sir Robin ran away...
Sir Robin: *No!*
Minstrel: [singing] bravely ran away away...
Sir Robin: *I didn't!*
Minstrel: [singing] When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled. Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about, and valiantly, he chickened out. Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat. A brave retreat by brave Sir Robin.

Thank you Mr. Kerry for your fine advice.
