This has a Howie Kurtz byline, so he'll probably write a Bush take the gloves off column next week.

Kerry Takes Off Gloves
"Let me tell you what I think makes someone unfit for duty," Kerry said. "Misleading our nation into war in Iraq makes you unfit to lead this nation. Doing nothing while this nation loses millions of jobs makes you unfit to lead this nation. Letting 45 million Americans go without health care makes you unfit to lead this nation. Letting the Saudi royal family control our energy costs makes you unfit to lead this nation. Handing out billions [in] government contracts without a bid to Halliburton while you're still on their payroll makes you unfit."

If taking taking off the gloves means hammering away at the facts over and over again for the next few weeks means taking off the gloves, thats what he should do. Bush aplologists are reduced to saying that, see Iraq isn't so bad, a 1000 dead is nothing compared to Viet Nam. Who knew that even after Nixon, conservatives would find a way to get a positive spin out o Nam. Didn't we used to have a president that was a big dog, but really did feel our pain.
