You better make sure this isn't an AP story which will be retracted. Of course cnn, abc, nbc, cbs, msnbc, cnbc, hnn, pbs, nytimes, bostonglobe, usatoday, washintonpost will jump on this story and will be front page news for at least 2 months. (/sarcasm>

Frist had 98 co-sponsors of S. Res. 95 , only Senator Zell Miller (Democrat of Georgia), who was absent due to a family emergency was not on that list.

What the heck was he doing in the Senate that day anyhow?

I'm starting to think the man is just addled. How can you not remember this sort of thing, and if you do remember it, how can you flipflop as if no one else remembers what you said?

Incidentally---in the Kerry campaign shakeup, what happened to the band of brothers? If Kerry can't talk about VN anymore, do those guys have to go home and get back to their real jobs?

This was when the Dems were clammoring to get onto the war wagon [rather than the bandwagon].

Ever since the convention, I can hear that sing songy refrain: flip-flop, flip-flop. And I think a lot of people watching took it as genuine. Organic. Not contrived. I know I took it as a spontaneous crowd reaction.

NOW

John Kerry: "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time."

THEN

KERRY: "George, I said at the time I would have preferred if we had given diplomacy a greater opportunity, but I think it was the right decision to disarm Saddam Hussein, and when the President made the decision, I supported him, and I support the fact that we did disarm him."

Note that Hanoi John also flip-flopped on the coalition. This resolution was passed after he referred to the coalition -
"not in some trumped-up, so-called coalition of the bribed, the coerced, the bought and the extorted, but in a genuine coalition."

What a pandering whore.

Yes but he has a position to defend each of his previous decisions and a position to defend those decisions in case your actually interested in the truth.

Nice job Thanatos. Next time we meet at the Sheraton in D.C., I owe you one for this.

Thanks for this find ... Kerry supported the war in a debate in May 2003 as well...

the guy is the ultimate backseat driver and monday-morning quarterback.
