It's good that the press isn't letting Bush just get away with using images of the World Trade Center in campaign ads
. Kerry cannot let Bush be the presumptive anti-terror candidate. Next time Kerry gets asked about those ads in an interview or debate, he should say something like this:
I think it reveals something about the President and his campaign. Personally, I don't think it's appropriate to use images of Ground Zero for political gain. Of course we should have a debate about how best to combat terror and preserve our national security, but our memories of the September 11th tragedies should be treated with respect. This president won't spare more than one hour of his time to talk with the commission investigating what went wrong on 9/11; to me, that says he's just not willing to do what it takes to make sure a tragedy like this never happens again.
I'm sure the Kerry campaign is overjoyed to get such insightful advice for free over the web. Here at Preposterous, we toil selflessly for the greater good.
