i am saying it's all silly. there's no double-standard in that statement. you trying to only see kerry's missteps . . . now that is exactly the double standard i am pointing out. if we want to try and dissect the nuance, i think i can point to dubya lies over much bigger matters than what time of day kerry said this or that on day he had a few appearances, but my point is that they all lie and flop and pander to the respective audience to which they are speaking. <br><br>by the way, can you believe that dubya actually lied and said he watched a plane hit the WTC live on 9/11? of all subject matter to lie about. <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
