Nice work, Adam Nagourney and the New York Times:
On the Friday before Election Day, Mr. Cheney told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that the White House would push â€œfull speed aheadâ€ with its Iraq policy, no matter the outcome of the election. In the process, Mr. Cheney obscured a last minute flurry in which the president had attacked Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts for a remark about American troops in Iraq.
It’s safe to say I’m not the world’s biggest John Kerry fan. Still, I’ve always dreamed that someday the New York Times could write a story that mentions Kerry without regurgitating the most pernicious, disgusting right wing smears about him.
Maybe I need some new dreams.
(Thanks to Dean Baker for pointing this out.)
