Dick Cheney Gets Serious

Now Dick Cheney is distorting a quote in an effort to attack Kerry’s level of seriousness:

“It doesn’t strike me that you can ever think of terror or what it strikes at as a nuisance. That says to me that the individual who entertains those thoughts isn’t as serious as I want my commander in chief to be.”

It’s really incredible that from day one, the major strategy of the Bush/Cheney campaign has been to distort quotes and just try to milk those distortions, day after day after day. I know it can be effective, but man, doesn’t it ever hurt to be that pathetic?

I guess not. If the sidekick of a president who utters lines like this is even willing to bring up the issue of seriousness, anything is possible:

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful. And so are we. They never stop thinking of new ways to harm our country and our people. And neither do we.”

Concentration is important!
