“Foreign Leaders” For John Kerry?

John Kerry claimed yesterday that certain “foreign leaders” have told him that they’re rooting for him to defeat President Bush.

“I’ve met foreign leaders who can’t go out and say this publicly, but boy, they look at you and say, ‘You’ve got to win this, you’ve got to beat this guy, we need a new policy,’ things like that,” Kerry told a crowd while campaigning in Hollywood, Fla.”

Boy, I LOVE a mystery, don’t you? Who could these mysterious “foreign leaders” be? Could they be Iranian? Perhaps they’re from North Korea? According to this press release from Tom Delay, he seems to be guessing these “foreign leaders” are from North Korea & France…

“Kerry’s ingenious international campaign for the White House picked up another endorsement just last week, according to the following evidence of growing support for Kerry in Kim Jong Il’s regime in North Korea, as reported in the Financial Times:

“Rather than dealing with President George W. Bush and hawkish officials in his administration, Pyongyang seems to hope victory for the Democratic candidate on November 2 would lead to a softening in US policy towards the country’s nuclear weapons programme.”

DeLay remarked sullenly: “If he locks up Paris next, he’s going to be tough to beat.”

The Dissident Frogman also seems to believe that these “foreign leaders” might be French…

But I have a more important question — since when did candidates for the Presidency start trumpeting the fact that “foreign leaders” wanted them to win? I thought that sort of sentiment went out of fashion about the time the Revolutionary War started. Maybe Kerry should start getting interested in serving AMERICAN interests instead of sucking up to “foreign leaders” who can’t vote and don’t have America’s best interests at heart.
