What John Kerry said was regrettable. But, John Kerry is not running for office. Neither is George Bush (unfortunately). If this is the best October surprise that Rove can come up with then it just proves what a pathetic ass he is.
And Mr. Bush, you should be worried about this:
Sunni insurgents have cut the roads linking the city (Baghdad) to the rest of Iraq. The country is being partitioned as militiamen fight bloody battles for control of towns and villages north and south of the capital.Update:
As American and British political leaders argue over responsibility for the crisis in Iraq, the country has taken another lurch towards disintegration.
Well-armed Sunni tribes now largely surround Baghdad and are fighting Shia militias to complete the encirclement.
Now Kerry has apologized. At least he showed some sense. Maybe it will disappear into the woodwork. If this is all Rove has to run with, it is pretty sorry.
If the American people are so dense that they do not see what is going on here than, as Billmon says, we deserve everything we get. Just revolting.
