As retired General, and disgusted former Bush, now enthusiastic Kerry supporter Tony McPeak says, thanks to the original catblogger Kevin Drum:
The President seems to think Senator Kerry could not possibly be criticizing him since the President thinks he has never made a mistake. Let’s be perfectly clear: it is the President who dropped the ball. Senator Kerry is being critical of George Bush, not the troops. By embarking on the line of attack, George Bush is deflecting blame from him over to the military. This is beneath contempt.
There must be a trite word that I could use here, that some idiotic rightwinger uses all the time...oh yes...
