White House Hypocrisy Runs Rampant Over Kerry Profanity


by Steve

This one is a classic example of White House hypocrisy. Apparently the White House is indignant because John Kerry, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, says in essence that Bush has fucked up Iraq. The White House today is demanding an apology because Kerry used profanity.

The Massachusetts senator uttered a profanity in an interview in the latest Rolling Stone magazine to express his dismay over Bush's handling of Iraq.

When asked in the interview about the success of rival candidate Howard Dean, whose anti-war message has resounded with supporters, Kerry responded: "When I voted for the war, I voted for what I thought was best for the country. Did I expect Howard Dean to go off to the left and say, `I'm against everything?' Sure. Did I expect George Bush to f--- it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did."

"That's beneath John Kerry," the president's chief of staff, Andrew Card, said on CNN's "Late Edition."

Really? Well, by that standard, isn’t such language also beneath a born-again leader of the free world?

The allegedly Born Again Christian George W. Bush, as we reported here before from a no-longer-free link to Time Magazine, interrupted a meeting between Condi Rice and three senators nearly a year before the invasion to blurt “Fuck Saddam, we’re taking him out!”

What’s good for the goose…..

Send an email to AP coresponent Ron Fournier and let him know how hypocritical it is for the White House to complain about Kerry's profanity when Bush used it in the White House in an open setting over a year before the invasion. You can reach Fournier at rfournier@ap.org.
