More of that false equivalency we’ve grown accustomed to from the “liberal media”:
I’m afraid that the dishonesty of politics has infected all of us if we’re so partisan that we’re willing to point out only the sins of the other side. Intellectual consistency requires a tough look first at one’s own shortcomings. So Republicans should be denouncing the smear against Mr. Kerry’s war record, and Democrats should be denouncing their candidate’s protectionist tone on trade.
So attacking Bush’s policy record on trade is morally equivalent to making baseless charges about Kerry’s service in Vietnam? With liberal columnists like these, who needs William Safire?
