John Kerry, who seems to think that he actually has a chance at the 2008 nomination, addressed the Swift Boaters, claiming that:
"I'm prepared to kick their ass from one end of America to the other."
Meanwhile, fast forward to some time after the midterm elections, and listen to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi:
"Next time, we will run ads saying that George Bush let Bin Laden escape. Next time."
Yeah, some things never change. If Gore had been president on 9/11, and Bin Laden was still frolicking around Pakistan, what do you think the Republicans would be saying?
