There are plenty of stories about President Bush’s ad campaign, but I can’t find one in which John Kerry is denouncing the use of 9/11 images. Am I missing something?
I can see why silence might be a wise strategy for a candidate who’s spent millions flashing pictures of himself from a jungle battlefield that claimed 57,000 American lives. But since when has Kerry developed a sense of shame. Remember two weeks ago when he expressed outraged that a politician might bring up Vietnam for “personal, political gain?”
I think the attacks on Bush’s ads are going to backfire. While dopey pundits think Bush is off-message when he’s defending the ad, I see an entire conversation about how the 2004 election should be focused on 9/11 and the War On Terror.
That’s not a bad thing.
