You stay classy, John Kerry

John Kerry was once a candidate for president. He was also once a soldier.

He may also have once been a human being, but this calls that idea into doubt:

"These are the exciting last two week moments of the presidential campaign," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., today in Cambridge, Mass. "So it's a very special time. I can't wait for it to be over. I am so tired of the press' silly questions that they ask along the way. And cable television which reduces everything to stupidity - the lowest common denominator of conflict."

"I don't know if any of you know what it's like. I do, obviously," Kerry told the crowd. "I've been asked all of those brilliant questions that were repeated this year...Barack got asked the famous boxers or briefs question. I was tempted to say commando...

"Then they asked McCain and McCain said, ‘Depends,'" Kerry said.

There are low blows in politics. But frankly, in nearly 40 years of watching, writing, and participating in politics, I've never seen anything so slimy in my life.

Ed Lasky:

Remember, McCain defended Kerry in the last Presidential election from the "Swift Boaters". Loyalty among fellow soldiers? Forget about it.

So this is the man the Democrats offered up last time around to be President? This is the man that Obama has tipped to be Secretary of State?

Abe Greenwald of Commentary:

Was this what Colin Powell hoped to embrace by escaping the nasty and divisive insinuations of the GOP?

Don't forget, it's McCain's fault that the race has gone into the gutter.
