JOHN KERRY — the next Wesley Clark?

I don’t know if things are as bad for Kerry as this makes him sound. But his campaign is definitely not ready for primetime, and the election season is pretty far along.

UPDATE: Thomas Oliphant: “I watched Kerry throw his war decorations.”

John Podhoretz: “Kerry is a terrible, terrible, terrible candidate.”

All campaigns have their ups and downs, and Kerry may find his stride. But it does seem to be true that his best week so far was the week he took off.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Kerry still has Adam Nagourney on his side! It’s like stepping into a parallel universe where the Kerry campaign is a well-oiled machine. Hey, look, Spock has a beard!

(Not this one.)
