Lecturing John (the extent of their case)
John Edwards, it seems, will attempt to use tonight's debate to promulgate the notion that the Bush Administration lied in order to gain the support necessary for the invasion of Iraq. The Kerry-Edwards campaign has sent out two "fact sheets" this afternoon: More Evidence Emerges That Bush Misled The Nation Into War -- followed swiftly by Bush-Cheney Misleading America.
You might want to look at the press releases. I didn't bother pulling my hair out, because that's the best they have. It's Michael Moore-grade material, and if Dick Cheney is prepared to explain – "No, John, that is not how it is" – he could win tonight's debate. He has to turn it into a lecture.
