By e-mail we’re told that in an attempt to limit John Kerry’s message, the Republicans will release a 12 minute video to embarass Kerry tonight, and that it will be all over the news tomorrow and this weekend.
Anyone know if this is true? What’s the appropriate response if it is true?
I watched the video yesterday. It is 12 minutes of Kerry completely shifting his opinions on Iraq, starting with his very hawkish behavior and belligerent attitude toward Hussein in 1998 (so spare me the “how was he supposed to know Bush was lying” bullshit) until the Iowa caucus, when Dean’santi-war position was cleaning Kerry’s clock in thepolls. Once that became clear, Kerry took on a more ‘nuanced’ position.
Only in the weird world in which Democrats reside could this be considered an ‘attack’ ad. Is it embarassing? Yes. But so is John Kerry.
