Kerry flip-flops on Israel, tells Rush to stop eating doughnuts

One amusing facet of the left is this insistence that Rush Limbaugh is still fat. Not that it makes any difference, but he's not. Oddly enough, the left seems to ignore the "poundfully challenged" Michael Moore, who by everyone's estimation is about twice the size of Rush.

Okay, enough about "Who's fatter, and therefore not as smart?" John Kerry, who incidentally served in Vietnam (who knew?) before throwing someone else's medals over the White House fence, is fixated on Rush's perceived culinary preferences. From Jean-Francois Querrie's own web site:
“Rush Limbaugh’s ignorance and willingness to divide Americans knows no bounds. His latest statement about Israel is beyond offensive to all of us who have fought to protect Israel in the face of enemies committed to its destruction.

Rush Limbaugh needs to pick up a history book instead of a donut. It was a Democratic president who first recognized the State of Israel. It was a Democratic President who first sold Israel defensive weapons. And it was a Democratic President who first sold Israel offensive weapons.

The people of Israel and the Jewish community don’t need Rush Limbaugh to tell them who stands with them, and no one has time for the right wing trying to score cheap political points while Israel fights to defend its very existence.”
Wow! Monsieur Heinz sure is defensive about his (and his party's) love for Israel, n'est-ce pas? You wouldn't know that the guy was all but endorsed by the late terrorist Nobel "Peace" Prize winner, Yassar Arafat!

I don't know how anyone could doubt his commitment to Israel's security! Before:
In October 2003, he told the Arab American Institute in Michigan: "I know how disheartened Palestinians are by the Israeli government's decision to build the barrier off of the Green Line – cutting deep into Palestinian areas. We don't need another barrier to peace. Provocative and counterproductive measures only harm Israelis' security over the long term, increase the hardships to the Palestinian people, and make the process of negotiating an eventual settlement that much harder."
But a week before the New York state primary, he told a Jewish group: "Israel's security fence is a legitimate act of self defense. No nation can stand by while its children are blown up at pizza parlors and on buses. While President Bush is rightly discussing with Israel the exact route of the fence to minimize the hardship it causes innocent Palestinians, Israel has a right and a duty to defend its citizens. The fence only exists in response to the wave of terror attacks against Israel."
Senator John F'ing Kerry: he actually did oppose Israel's right to self-defense...before he didn't.

I also don't know how anyone could doubt his party's commitment to Israel's security: From Chris "Waitress Sandwich" Dodd (D-CT) on CNN with Wolf Blitzer:
BLITZER: Do I hear you correctly, Senator Dodd, when you say the Israelis have overreacted to the threat that they feel?

DODD: I think going as far as they have in this case here is going further than they should have, in my view. I think going after Hezbollah in the south, clearly warranted without any question whatsoever. But it seems to me here, just going beyond that here is doing exactly what the Iranians want here. You're now radicalizing Lebanon, a population that I think was far more moderate prior to all of this. You're radicalizing elements in Jordan and Egypt. That is dangerous for Israel in my view, and the United States.
Yesiree, those Dems are friends to Israel, alright. With friends like that...
