In the fall of 2006, "Hanoi" John Kerry appeared on Bill Maher's Real Time HBO show and commented about his wife's recent birthday.
MAHER: You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one stone.In June 2009, Kerry was speaking about the brief disappearance of South Carolina womanizing Governor Mark Sanford.
KERRY: Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.
The Bay State senator was telling a group of business and civic leaders in town at his invitation about the “bizarre’’ tale of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had “disappeared for four days’’ and claimed to be hiking along the Appalachian Trail, but no one was really certain of his whereabouts.Stay Classy!
“Too bad,’’ Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.’’
The Democratic-centric crowd laughed.
