John Kerry hopes you'll forget he is a *Sitting Senator*
How will he help you forget? By never mentioning it, but of course. Wizbang
has a fine point.
I am fairly certain that Kerry could be nailed on several issues like this. In fact, most rebuttals from the Bush camp should be framed by the fact that Kerry could have done something about this a long time ago. Long before Bush ever got on the scene, in fact.
Check out this article
from National Review's Andrew McCarthy which points that the 9/11 commission that Kerry immediately endorsed (presumably only to score a political point) pretty much slagged the Senate Intelligence Committee for not even coming close to doing its job. I assume no one will directly ask Kerry or Edwards the questions Mr. McCarthy raises about this, but if you read it and don't ask *yourself* then you are probably a great candidate for the jobs that might shortly be available over at See B.S.

Well, I don't know. Remember that episode of Northern Exposure where Holling offered to plow that guy's field by hand just for the spiritual and philosophical reawakening he thought it would bring? That kind of thing. Of course, he ended up in Fleischman's office with a back spasm. Hmmm. Actually I just need the money and this is a great temporary gig that just dropped in my lap. How out of shape could I really be? I will be sure to let you know the gruesome extent of my injuries as they happen...
Speaking of Northern Exposure
