Another Safire Satire…
Dick Cheney on Tuesday: “The biggest threat we face now as a nation is the possibility of terrorists ending up in the middle of one of our cities with deadlier weapons than have ever before been used against us – biological agents or a nuclear weapon or a chemical weapon of some kind – to be able to threaten the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans … You have to get your mind around that concept … John Kerry would lead you to believe he has the same kind of view that George Bush has, that he would be tough and aggressive. I don’t believe it. I don’t think there’s any evidence to support the proposition that he would, in fact, do it.”
The guy who suggested that terrorists would greet a Kerry victory by attacking us is now implying that Kerry would stand by as hundreds of thousands of Americans are killed.
And what does Safire have for us in his latest column? An attack on Kerry’s scare tactics.
Don’t try to get your mind around that hypocrisy. It’s too tough a move to reverse.
The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth are really getting a run for their money.
