Dole to Bush: For shame!
Slate has broken a story (complete with a bootleg video) of Bob Dole on CNN with Wolf Blitzer. Basically they were discussing the swift boat veterans smear campaign which is replay of what the Bush campaign did to John McCain in 2000 (McCain has already conceded that Bush's tactics are as transparent as they appear). From the article:
Of McCain's charge to President Bush during a 2000 debate—"You should be ashamed"—Dole told Wolf Blitzer, "He was right." Dole made the remark off-air, while CNN broadcast the Kerry ad called "Old Tricks," the one featuring McCain's 2000 debate remarks. The campaign stopped airing it recently at McCain's request.Fortunately, what he did or did not do in vietnam is not an issue for Bush although the means of how he got out of it is alive and kicking. It should not go unnoted that a lot more concern is being given to the stupid unwinnable war from 30 years and not enough on how we're going to deal with the stupid unwinnable war of right now.
