Trying Too Hard

The right is trying a little too hard to smear John Kerry. They’re circulating a story that he said he “EXPRESSED ‘HATRED’ OVER TRIPS TO IOWA.”

Actually he said – about the need for campaign finance reform – “I hate going to places like Austin and Dubuque to raise large sums of money. But I have to.”

He hates having to raise the money. The right smears him, claiming he said he hates Iowa. Typical.

Remember when they dredged up a letter Clinton wrote as a student, saying that he could understand why some people loath the military, and turned it into a widely-repeated smear that Clinton had written that he “loathed the military”?
