Kerry is a jackass, YES BUT...

I'm a bit concerned about the vitriol engendered by Kerry's recent remarks on the campaign trail. Not that it is undeserved, but that it is a distraction.

There's rhetorical device known the 'Straw Man'. It basically means to present someone who defends a position poorly as the defender, refute that person's arguments, and pretend that every upholder of that position, and thus the position itself, has been defeated.

Kerry is not running for anything next Tuesday!!

This may well be the Democrats trying to have a sort of mystical Karl Rove moment.

Think about it... Democrats are joining in demanding an apology, and every eye on Kerry is an eye away from the races that matter next week.

If it isn't a democratic tactic, I'll bet there's folks in back rooms saying "wish I'd thought of that!"

Just sayin',,,
