A Very Brief Telephone Conversation.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:30 pm


John O’Neill: “Hello.”

John Kerry: “May I please speak with John O’Neill?”

John O’Neill: “Speaking.”

John Kerry: “Hi, John. This is John Kerry.”

John O’Neill: “I recognized your voice.”

John Kerry: “John. I have to tell you that you and those Swift Boat guys are really giving me a hard time, and I was wondering whether you might be interested in establishing some kind of truce.”

John O’Neill:

John Kerry: “Let me be frank, John. You know — sailor to sailor.”

John O’Neill:

John Kerry: “OK, well, I’m putting together a list of people I would like to have serve in my administration, if I win this thing in November. Seeing as how you are a former Navy officer and a Vietnam Vet, I was wondering whether you might be interested in serving as my Secretary of the Navy.”

John O’Neill: “‘Sailor to sailor’ did you say?”

John Kerry: “Absolutely.”

John O’Neill: “Shove off, asshole.”



  1. Jimbo,

    Good one. We would love to see your blog regarding the pending US troop reductions in Germany (in addition to your personal reflections, having been stationed there).

    “During Vietnam, I remember one Christmas Eve on a mission inside East Germany, or was it Czechoslovakia? Well is was somewhere near somewhere I wasn’t supposed to be. Wait.. that’s right, it was in that bar that was off-limits to US soldiers. Anyway I should have applied for a Purple Heart for the bar fight wound I sustained. I’m sure that asshole who hit me was an East-German agent.”

  4. A true professional – I’m not so sure that I would have been so cordial. 😀
