ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Oh how I miss the 2004 presidential elections...

How much fun must it be to be on the Kerry staff? I mean, can you imagine how many antacids you had to take when Kerry said this today?

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq."

Oh brother. And this guy thinks he can be president?

Allah calls it a meltdown, and has a clip of Bennett basically saying this is the end of the Kerry Presidential run in 2008 (has it even started yet?) I disagree with this part though:
All in all, though, surprisingly shrewd. The nutroots will be wanking to this for days, and since he can’t run to the right of Hillary or Obama, this at least gives him a shot to outflank Gore on the left in ‘08. Whereupon he’ll be promptly torpedoed in the primaries.

Imagine how much the nutroots are going to scream when Kerry comes out and apologizes? And he's got to apologize, or the remaining week before the election is going to be about how the Dem's belittle the troops. It's going to be in every politician's talking point between now and election day. If he doesn't apologize, the rest of the Democratic party will be shown to be agreeing with him by their silence.

Did the Architect use his mind ray to get Kerry to insert his foot in his mouth? You know I can't comment on ongoing operations...... But let me just say, what better example could you find to bring the national security issue front and center, and highlight the northeast liberals of the party, especially important in those "Blue Dog" races?

The always pithy, Gateway Pundit weighs in as well with lots of links and lots of info.
