The Kerry-Dean flap
THE KERRY-DEAN FLAP: Will Saletan, Mickey Kaus, Howard Kurtz, Matt Yglesias, David Adesnik, Kevin Drum , ByWord, Daily Kos, and the entire left half of the Blogosphere are all in a tizzy over John Kerry's shot across Howard Dean's bow.
Dean was quoted in a Time magazine article saying,
Kerry's spokesman Chris "I used to shill for Gore" Lehane, in a press release, responded with:
The debate seems to revolve around whether Kerry was being fiendishly clever in a good way or in a hypocritical way. What strikes me, however, is that Kerry wasn't being fiendishly clever at all -- he was following the precise instructions laid out by the Time reporter, Karen Tumulty. Let's look at the Dean quote again in context of the Time story:
Kerry's staff does earn points for being the first one to read/exploit the Tumulty suggestion.
But clever? I think not.

"Democrats will only win the White House when we convince a majority of voters--including Independents and moderate Republicans--that we have sufficient depth of understanding and experience in world affairs and increasingly complex security issues to promote legitimate American interests as well as to create economic growth and justice."
Bush did it - why not the Democrats! What a statement!!! Does it mean we must keep Bush because he has NO understanding of these things?posted by: Judie on 04.30.03 at 04:45 PM [permalink]
