Kaus says that Bonifaz’s criticism of Kerry for voting
Kerry is the one who
A friend e-mailed me with a specific perspective on Edwards, writing, “He has spent his life convincing groups of 12 people on a jury to go his way.” So being a phony comes most naturally to Edwards. Bill Clinton was a natural fraud in much the same way. He didn’t have to stop and think on his feet or in advance strategically about how to fool people. Compare that to Wesley Clark, who can’t answer the simplest of questions on the estate tax. Sadly, this stuff doesn’t bite Democrats, as we see with Ted Kennedy at Chappaquiddick and Robert Byrd belonging to the Ku Klux Klan.
You’ll never see last-minute stories about a Democrat’s DWI. All we ever get are manufactured stories from the mainstream press praising their supposed positives. A lot of you have been calling in with worries that Bush isn’t attacking Edwards or any of these other guys. You have an instinctive understanding that these phonies are going to get away with misrepresenting themselves and their policies. You’re hoping other people figure it out, and you don’t hear or see other people saying it. That’s why you’re upset. I understand totally, and I hear you.
