Kerry Misleads

Well, this is disappointing. Kerry has joined Lieberman among the ranks of Democrats who have misrepresented Howard Dean's positions in order to score political points and paint a false picture of Dean.
He criticized front-running Howard Dean for opposing the Iraq war, saying, "Howard Dean's opposition to the war was wrong. You can't just walk away. All along I said you had to hold Saddam Hussein accountable but do it right."
This cleverly implies that Dean wants to "just walk away" which is absolutely false and also that Dean did not want to hold Hussein accountable, also false.

It's fine to attack each other's positions, but let's at least leave the lies to the lying liars on the Republican side, shall we?
