Rhetorical Differences

Bush's pattern of repeating the same catchphrases over and over works better on the campaign trail -- cheered on by friendly crowds, making the lead story on the nightly news in Milwaukee or Tampa -- than it does during a 90-minute debate. Conversely, Kerry's tendency to speak in full-blown paragraphs suits him better here than when trying to make a sound-bite.

Accept he begins to say really STUPID things.

Global test. Give Iran nuclear material. Iraq is a mistake, oh wait, it's not a mistake when people die for it. What else?

Kerry killed himself. Too bad you're too much of a partisan to see it.
