The Global Test, and Beyond!

Hat tip to Frank J, who points out this delightful quote:

"But I can do a better job of protecting America's security because the test that I was talking about was a test of legitimacy, not just in the globe, but elsewhere."

Of course the first question is, to whom, beyond residents of this Earth, is John Kerry going to look for legitimacy? But that was the essence of Frank J's comment, so I'll move on and try to ask a somewhat more original question.

Why is this guy considered the more intelligent of the candidates? People make fun of Bushisms all the time, but John Kerry, who was apparently proud that he invented the term "misleadisments," goes on to say something as fantastically stupid as the above quote - and yet he's somehow the better speaker? There's something seriously wrong, here.
