And I'm still wondering how they thought they could run an anti-war anti-hero as a war hero, that one put it well.
Switching to opposite positions and convictions in the wink of an eye for political expediency is the ULTIMATE flip-flop.
"Back in the '50s there was a popular song called 'A Slow Boat to China.' Someone needs to update it today, call it 'A Swift Boat to Nowhere,' and dedicate it to John Kerry." --Lyn Nofziger
"According to the Bush campaign, John Kerry's record of vacillation and inconsistency in the Senate would make him a disastrously indecisive POTUS -- an IMPOTUS, as it were." --Niall Ferguson
"So John Kerry now is the first self-confessed war criminal in U.S. history to be nominated for president. Normally this would be considered an electoral plus only in the more cynical banana republics. But the Democrats seemed to think they could run an antiwar anti-hero as a war hero and nobody would mind." --Mark Steyn
"Democrats can dish it out but have trouble taking it. If one wishes to go down the alley of such political rhetoric, one should not be surprised to get mugged at the end of it. ... Democrats can't credibly complain of a bloody nose when they threw the first punch." --Cal Thomas
"Campaign finance 'reform' holds that only 'legitimate' voices can be heard in a democracy, which should be repugnant to the crowd that usually waxes pious about First Amendment rights. ... The notion that, politically or legally, only some people have the 'right' to say something during an election runs completely counter to the core intent of the First Amendment. But, hey, what right do I have to say that?" --Jonah Goldberg
"While waiting for the Ouija board to give us Kerry's final answer on the Iraq war, perhaps we could get an answer on something simpler -- like whether or not Kerry owns an SUV. ... While Kerry works out his positions, apparently the voters have decided that their legitimate act of self-defense is to vote for Bush." --Ann Coulter
