It strikes me as amazing that Kerry makes a fairly innocuous mistake, and it's a mistake only if you choose to interpret it like the right-wingers have chosen to interpret it. The Republican political machine immediately jumps on it -- clearly they were waiting for something, anything they could use -- and the story is picked up first by right-wing blogs and radio, then by the President himself in a clearly coordinated political strategy. That's all fine. That's politics. But, what's amazing is how the righties on this site, like true soldiers, immediately follow the lead. It's impressive in the same way the Nazis and Communists were impressive the way they blindly followed whatever their leaders told them. It's just too bad that some of these followers seem incapable of thinking for themselves. But, then again, the Repugs obviously did this to motivate their base, not to win any converts.
