Why does John Kerry still have a job?

John Kerry, who as secretary of state is allegedly our chief diplomat, proves almost daily that he is an idiot. In discussing the terrorist attack in Paris recently, he sure as shit sounded like he was saying the attack in January on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 journalists died, was somehow justified:
There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo [and what happened in last week’s Paris attacks], and I think everybody would feel that. [In the Hebdo case] [t]here was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.
This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people. It was to attack everything that we do stand for. That’s not an exaggeration. It was to assault all sense of nationhood and nation-state and rule of law and decency, dignity, and just put fear into the community and say, “Here we are.”
And for what? What’s the platform? What’s the grievance? That we’re not who they are? They kill people because of who they are and they kill people because of what they believe. And it’s indiscriminate.
I bolded the unbelievable part. Sure, he immediately backed off calling the Charlie Hebdo attack "legitimate," but he embraced the concept that there was a rationale that made sense. "After all, they pissed off the Islamist killers, so of course they got killed." What a douche.

I'm not the only guy who thinks Kerry should be unemployed, but really, do you think Emperor Barry I would bring in anybody better? Who? No, we're stuck with this moron until Barry I begins his transition from worst president every to worst ex-president ever. I realize he has a high mountain to climb -- in the form of Jimmy Carter -- to achieve those two goals, but I think Barry has it in him. Kerry has to be a frontrunner for worst secretary of state ever, as well.
