In a followup:
"Of course, now Senator Kerry says he was just making a joke, and he botched it up. I guess we didn't get the nuance. He was for the joke before he was against it," Cheney said in a line meant to recall Bush's skewering of Kerry in their 2004 race for saying he had voted for war funds before he voted against them.
Well-played, Mr. Vice President.

If you're curious about why Republicans still manage to get a fair amount of support, it doesn't have a whole lot to do with the principles upon which the two parties stand, because those are pretty flimsy principles. It's that the Republicans seem more normal and less insane. When Republicans do evil things, they try to hide it, and when they get caught, they resign and try to change the subject, like normal people. When Democrats do things, they come up with theories about vast right-wing conspiracies and approvingly quote Daily Kos.

Hi Beetle, I'm Christine. I found your blog through Calstuff, on which I've seen your comments and input. I admire your knowledge of the goings-on of the Berkeley campus and community. Right now, I am trying to tap into the Berkeley online community, as I recently started a sex blog that's somewhat Berkeley-related. I present it as an alternative to the Daily Cal's Sex on Tuesday column. If you're interested in crosslinking, please check out my blog and drop me a line.
Kerry voted against Iraq War I ('89) He was one of the few dissenters in the western world.
How does one miss the nuance of such a straight-forward statement?
What idiot handlers let Kerry spend an entire day wigging out over the how the vast-right-wing-conspiracy (TM) was persecuting him? A quick, humble, apology early on would have made him seem like less of a moron.
