We're Laughing AT You, Kerry,...

Massachusetts Sen. Kerry has joined the fraternity of jokesters using Sarah Palin as a punch line.

Kerry was meeting a group of business and civic leaders in the nation's capital when he decided to play comedian, according to The Boston Herald. He was talking about the disappearance of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, the Alaska governor's Republican peer.

"Too bad," he said, "if a governor had to go missing it couldn't have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin."

Kerry's joke came 24 hours before Sanford turned up to admit an affair with a woman living in Argentina, the Herald reported Thursday.

It's not Kerry's first foray into comedy. In 2006 the former presidential candidate apologized for a "botched" joke he made about American soldiers serving in Iraq.

Talking to a group of students in California, Kerry said that people who do not study hard and do their homework will likely "get stuck in Iraq."

His comments elicited strong reactions from Republicans who criticized him for troop-bashing.

A statement from his aides later said the line was aimed at then President Bush and supposed to read: "You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq."
