55. Wellstone would never have called Bush the "Connecticut pantywaist"
Edited on Tue Sep-20-05 08:00 AM by blm
or "a fake and a liar" either. Democrats are civil men who believe in civil discourse. Unfortunately the GOP has bred a pack of uncivil asses over the last generation.

The only caution you saw in the campaign was from a corporate media on guard to keep Bush propped up and so edit out most of Kerry's most bruising remarks about Bush. You heard them on Cspan or live at a rally, but they would go missing in the news reports later that day or on alll the news shows afterwards.
