Kerry Hypocrisy Writ Petty

The Boston Globe has an unintentionally hilarious piece on John Kerry this morning, which covers his efforts to wring as much political juice as he can by continued griping about Bush's National Guard service and the "Mission Accomplished" banner anniversary yesterday. Raja Mishra starts his report by noting the Senator's scattershot thinking:

John F. Kerry walked into a diner here yesterday morning for a breakfast with fellow veterans, old soldiers gathered for a quiet discussion of war, death, and suffering on a day charged with political significance.

He sought a low profile, but in a rare, unscripted conversation with those gathered, the Massachusetts senator questioned President Bush's wartime moral authority, suggested that Vice President Dick Cheney would face harsher scrutiny for potential war-profiteering if Democrats were in control of Congress, and vented about the tone of the presidential race [emph mine - Ed].

And all that was before he finished his pancakes.

Let's see ... he implied that President Bush lacked morality, called Dick Cheney a war profiteer, and then complained about the tone of the campaign?

Is he running for President, or America's Funniest Home Politician?

UPDATE: The official Bush re-election campaign blog picks up this post. Welcome, all Bushblog readers, and I hope you bookmark and/or blogroll Captain's Quarters!
