Well said That Guy, and I'm not "nitpicking" over "some old lady"

Where are you getting your news? Bush has said on more than one occassion that Kerry should be proud of his service.

Perhaps better terms might have been "Clinton's surrogates" and "Bush's surrogates."

I doubt it is that clear through the partisian fog. Surrogates still suggest a degree of control, which I doubt any candidate has over some of these third party groups.

Yeah, the fact that dirty politics seems to follow Rove's campaigns is an amazing coincidence. Darn that liberal Eleanor Clift and her supposed Republican sources!

First you argue that the campaign has little to no control over the surrogates. Then you argue that they do, but it's okay because both sides do it. Which is it?

Both sides have third party elements, which are not controlled by the candidates. Both sides have their strategists, who are controlled by the candidates. Believe what you want.

Going tit for tat on partisan editorials is of no benefit or use.

Just because Bush himself didn't attacked him on this doesn't mean there were no messengers.
