Dowd: Guns and Peanut Butter (Modo smacks * Gores Kerry)

So let's see. What's our swell choice here?

A guy who mimed being a fighter pilot on a carrier versus a guy who mimed throwing his medals over a fence?

An incumbent who sticks with the wrong decisions based on the wrong facts versus a challenger who seems unable to stick to one side of any decision, right or wrong?

A Republican who's a world-class optimist, despite making the world more dangerous and virulently anti-American, versus a Democrat who looks like a world-weary loner, even as he pledges to make the world safer and more pro-American?

A president who can't go anywhere without his vice president to give him the answers versus a candidate who can't go anywhere without his campaign butler/buddy to give him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

2. She's just jealous
that Kerry has someone to fix his pb&j's for him.

Actually, I'm kinda jealous of that, too.

4. Normal
"Most of Falluja is returning to normal," the president said, presumably defining normal as flattened.

Anyway, is that 10 minutes to normal, as Karen Hughes would say? Or 10 years to normal? And what on earth is normal, when you're talking about Iraq chaos theory?

Re: the peanut butter & jelly, she's referencing this article:

5. A Tough One
An AWOL president who uses the Constitution for toilet paper, can't utter a compound sentence without cue cards, and needs Unka Dickie to hold his hand during the untelevised, unrecorded testimony or a sitting US Senator who has been shot at in a war he didn't believe in, went after one of the biggest financial frauds of all time, and will actually read legislation before voting on it.

You're right Modo, that's a tough one-almost as tough as reading one of your nasty little hit jobs.

Almost...
