KERREY….For the record, I’m with Mark Kleiman on the whole Bob Kerrey dustup. I was just barely willing to give him the benefit of the doubt over his “Obama’s Muslim father” remarks — largely because I think he’s substantively right about this — but his “secular madrassa” comment simply can’t be spun as sincere even if you’re bending over backward to be charitable. If he really thinks he’s helping Hillary with the nonsense, he’s sadly mistaken.
