That's how I'd describe Kerry's response to the Swift Boat vets.

It reminds me of when Clinton sent his lawyer (who would not be in any position to know) out to deny that he'd raped Juanita Broaddrick, but would never deny it himself.

I think one of the saddest indictments on John Kerry is that he actually makes me long for the days of Bill Clinton.

In watching Kerry try and follow the Slick Willie playbook in regards to campaigning and scandal-suppression, I am constantly amazed at the ineptitude. This is despite his being completely surrounded by former Clinton advisors.

At least when Bill lied to you, you had to admire his creativity or at least his audacity. With Long John, I am left with a feeling of uninspired tedium.

I've said this before, those Clinton advisers don't want Kerry to win because they will be working for Hillary in 08. Their ineptitude will come in subtle forms but they will be in-house Segrettis.

You ould be right, Bill. I have to say that even if they're honest, they are the same crowd that failed Clinton. Also any suckers out there want to bet how long it would take us to pine for the discipline of the Bush administration given who's in the Kerry camp?

Here in Bangkok its late Tuesday, and my read of the powerblogs extant leads me to believe that Kerry is done.

Its over for Kerry. All downhill from here.

Americans, despite the mass-media's contempt and condescension, ARE capable of sifting wheat from chaff, steer from bull.

If Kerry were to call a national TV interview, then tearfully confess AND remove himself from the nomination, he'd be nearly unbeatable in '08.

But he's in the sad state he's in, BECAUSE Kerry has no personal courage, no cojones, no brass and no balls!

As much as I hate to admit it, Kerry is far from toast. The electoral college is stacked in his favor. Bush is looking very vulnerable in Florida, Ohio, Missouri, and New Hampshire. These are states he carried in 2000 to win by a hair's breadth. He's unlikely to carry any of the states he lost in 2000, and if he loses just one of the above four, he loses the whole pie. The irony of it all is that he could win the popular vote this time around and lose the electoral college.
