From this day forth, we will only scrutinize Republicans. We were convinced by a flood of e-mails during this morning’s segment with the three Boston Globe reporters who’ve been covering John Kerry for 20 years and wrote a political biography of him. Here’s a typical excerpt from one of the emails:
Why is there such scrutiny of the Kerry record? Because that is what the Rove White House wants in order to divert attention from Bush and his record! There was no real scrutiny of Bush and his record when he ran for President…. To divert attention from all of this, let's talk about whether it was Kerry's medals or ribbons! Kerry is a model of integrity and intelligence next to Bush and his people!
So we promise: from now through Election Day, we will only scrutinize Bush.
