Everything Old is New Again
Saw this blogad on Talking Points Memo this morning:
Fascinating. Back when John Kerry was, you know, running for President, he couldn’t run away from this image — of his younger self testifying eloquently before Congress in 1971 about the futility of the Vietnam War — fast enough. Much to the dismay of those of us who actually found his words from back then (“How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”) more inspirational than anything he was saying these days.
Now that he’s trying to raise money, though (after you sign his online petition, you get sent to a fundraising pitch), suddenly War Protester Kerry is baaaaack!
Anyone want to put odds on the likelihood that War Protester Kerry will go back in the closet again if Gentleman’s Second Kerry decides to run again in 2008?
