Deconstructing Kerr-ida

I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.
John Kerry
To pretend, I actually do the thing: I have therefore only pretended to pretend.
Jacques Derrida

John Kerry is channeling Jacques Derrida! Now we know who those foreign leaders are that are pushing JK for President: they're French deconstructionists. Kinda makes sense, in a pomo sort of way.

As a followup, it intriguing to ponder that Berkeley philosopher John Searle has criticized Derrida for his "distressing penchant for saying things that are obviously false." Yet another remarkable parallel.
