GOP Releases Video

U.S. Newswire : Releases : "RNC Releases Kerry vs. Kerry Debate Video"

It's stunning how desperate and stumbling the GOP is all of a sudden. With few exceptions, just about every exchange in this video is:

  1. A long clip of Kerry slamming Bush
  2. Another long clip of Kerry slamming Bush in a different way, that in no way contradicts the earlier clip
  3. The video calling it a flip-flop.
They're basically making a greatest hits of Kerry's attacks against Bush, and airing it for us, on their dime! Sure, there are a couple of clips there that aren't very flattering, but most of them are either strongly-worded criticisms about Bush, or plainly obvious out-of-context partial sentences, or statements that Kerry has already clearly explained and inoculated himself from.

The Bush campaign is weird. They're good sometimes, but when they're off balance, they come across as completely clumsy and desperate. It's what happens when you expose a bully, because bullying is all they've got.
