    I need the ranscript because I didn't see the show but on the Lehrer news show last night, gergen was apparently all over Bush on this... bad news for junior.

    •  And how clever is this? (4.00)
      The night that the Washington Post piece aired the Kerry people pulled their spokespersons off the air and as a result cable was left with swift boat statement from one person representing a swift boat veterans and on the other side a Washington Post reporter. That suggests a danger for the Bush campaign -- credible news information suggesting that there are problems with that ad in an environment which the Kerry counterattack says this is part of a pattern, linked to previous attacks on McCain and distraction from issues we should be talking about.

      Are Kerry and/or his people really that clever?  They "pulled their spokespersons off the air", forcing the appearance of a WP reporter to rebut the SBVT spokesperson?  What a stroke of genius... let a respected surrogate handle the rebuttal.  "See... we told you so" they might as well have said.  How glorious, how sneaky, how beautiful!

      I'm getting more and more confidence in my man Kerry.
