I just saw this article about the Senate opening confirmation hearings for John Kerry as Secretary of State. I haven’t really thought about Kerry in this role, whether he’d be good for it or not, and don’t really want to advance an opinion on that anyway. Regardless, I think that the Good Fairy is a bigger consideration here.
After all, we all know that if John Kerry does a really good job as Secretary of State, then the Good Fairy might make him a real boy. I’m sure that’s his biggest goal in all of this. I’m sure he’s always dreamed of becoming a real boy.
Of course, he’ll have to avoid telling any lies during the confirmation hearings or his nose will grow. I don’t think this will be a real problem for him, but again I haven’t looked into the ‘for’ or ‘against’ camp on this so I don’t know whether or not lies might be an issue. I know for sure that he’ll need to obey Geppetto if he expects things to go well…and well as staying away from Pleasure Island and the insides of whales.
I’ll just have to hope for the best on this. I can’t really speak to whether or not he’d be a good Secretary of State, but I have enough human compassion to hope he can realize his dream to become a real boy. Can’t we all get behind that?
