From the Boston Globe today:
"My friends, this is not a time to pretend. We're here to celebrate the life of a man who, if he were here today, would make it clear to us what our agenda is. And nothing," Kerry said, his voice rising in anger, "would he make more clear on that agenda than, in a nation that is willing to spend several hundred million dollars in Iraq to bring them democracy we cannot tolerate that, here in America, too many people are denied that democracy."
Why didn't John Kerry talk like this from July to November of 2004?
The Democratic Party needs Josh Lyman. Run on your strengths, guys, not from them.
Errol Morris has a terrific and relevant piece on Kerry's mistakes in today's Times. Well worth a read.
