Just want to remind everyone about this quote from the other Senator from Massachusetts:
Shamefully we now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management.
Note to Ted: the difference between us and Saddam is that we punish sadistic thugs. He was one.
Hewitt’s article (linked at top) makes a great point. Kennedy’s comments were ridiculous. The press should have dogged Kennedy about them and asked Kerry if he agreed with his colleague’s synopsis. But that just wasn’t a story worth exploring.
By the way, today Teddy K said Iraq is “clearly George Bush’s Vietnam.” He’s right, in the sense that both wars were opposed by the media.
