Kerry in '08, RIP

Look, you can say John Kerry's stupid "stupid" joke was supposed to be about George Bush. But arguing that Kerry's handling of the post-joke ruckus could somehow help Democrats? Charley, I agree with you 90-plus percent of the time, but that strikes me as incredibly far-fetched.

Jon Keller thinks Kerry can kiss 2008 goodbye if this debacle ends up hurting the Democrats in the midterms. I'll agree, and go further: this whole episode will put the kabosh Kerry's '08 dreams, no matter what happens next Tuesday. And it should. He's not the right standard-bearer for the Democratic Party.
