Re: letter to kerry
- Nice letter. It reminded me of something I saw on "This Week With
George Stephanopalous." At the end of the show, they play some
comedy clips of the past week, relating to the news. They played one
from the Daily Show, where Jon Stewart showed a clip (a clip in a
clip!) of Bush saying something about Kerry authorizing force in
Iraq, and trying to say he would flip-flop if that vote was today;
Bush essentially using a weak argument to try to make Kerry look bad.
STEWART: But this gives John Kerry an opportunity -- an easy
opportunity to set himself apart, to make a clear, forceful,
unambiguous statement: No, I would not have voted for the authority
knowing there were no WMDs or just don't take the bait.
(pause, speaking into the camera) Mr. Kerry, it's a softball. Hit it
out of the park.
KERRY (clip from a speech): I would have voted for the authority.
STEWART: You're trying to lose!!!
