John Kerry Would Not Bail George Clooney Out Of Jail

But would pardon him. Who says John Kerry can't connect with everyday Americans?

Massachusetts senator John Kerry would bail out Massachusetts congressmen John Olver and Jim McGovern, who were arrested protesting outside the Sudanese embassy with George Clooney today — but he wouldn't bail Clooney out, if he had to choose two out of three.

In response to a Boston Phoenix reporter's joke question, Kerry said on Twitter that he would bail out both congressmen but seek pardon for Clooney:

Clooney won't need Kerry's pardon, as he's already been released.
