Speaking Truth to Power

Like it wouldn't have happened anyway, but an off-hand remark by John Kerry, referring to Republicans, has the Rethuglican spin machine at full tilt. GOP spin-meisters are already saying that Kerry is running a negative campaign and smearing his record and his remarks while deriding Kerry's appraisal of their methods as a "smear campaign."

The "offending remarks:"

"...the most crooked, you know, lying group I've ever seen...''
There is no doubt that taken at face value, this is a base truth. And yet, anyone with an (R-Somewhere) after their name, and anyone associated with the GOP are in a dither over this. It's as though someone has finally said that the king has no clothes.

Kerry's campaign manager's response to all of this? Basically it was "bring it on!"

I couldn't agree more.
