Cheney creates his own global test
Seeking desperately to tie John Kerry to Americans' fear of the outside world, Dick Cheney continued to harp on Kerry's "global test" comment during Tuesday's report. Republicans are apparently hoping that if they continue to be deaf, dumb and blind to the context in which Kerry used the words "global test" (note to morons: he wasn't calling for an actual test), someone will actually believe them.
The Associated Press reports:
"Cheney took Kerry out of context in quoting him as saying that he favored a global test before he would deploy U.S. troops to pre-empt an attack on the United States. Kerry said in his debate that he would not cede to anyone the right to move pre-emptively against a threat but that he would do so in a way that proved to Americans and the world that he had taken the action for a legitimate reason."
