WASHINGTON–Secretary of State John Kerry, in an address to his wife, announced that it didn't matter who did the dishes because the amount was "unbelievably small."
Kerry began the address to his wife, Teresa Heinz, "I'm absolutely positive that I was the last to do them."
It was during a follow-up Q&A, Kerry told the Heinz Ketchup Heiress, "I don't see why we're talking about this? It's an unbelievably small pile of dishes."
Later in the evening, the blogosphere and Mrs. Heinz's sister erupted at Secretary Kerry's comments. Kerry's sister-in-law took to twitter to show her negative reaction:
"It was Mrs. Kerry, after they just got married, that first made the "unbelievably small" complaint."
Political analysts argue that Kerry is making a pull for more independence from his wife, who is the executive decision maker in the family. Joe Scarborough blogged on Politico, "Secretary Kerry putting up a strong front is probably good in the long run, but he sure does sound like a jackass."
