KERRY WAFFLES ON GOD AND LIBERALISM: During Sunday’s debate, Kerry was pitched softball questions about whether God is on the side of the US, and whether or not he’s a liberal, and he waffled, hemmed and hawwed, and tried to have both sides of the argument (gee, there’s a shocker).

These are the sorts of the questions that Bill Clinton could have batted out of the park, and sounded presidential doing so. But instead, for Kerry, who, by the way, served in Vietnam, it’s not 1968 all over again, it’s 1988: Kerry sounds much like Dukakis flip-flopping over whether he was a liberal, and the waffle that sunk him–when Bernard Shaw of CNN asked him about what he’d do if his wife was murdered.
