WTF? You have to go and see the video.
Why wouldn't so called liberal CNN have aired this portion of Dole's now infamous appearance? The accompaning article says that the remark was made "off air" while a Kerry video was playing but this is not the impression you will get from watching the video.
Blitzer is such a whore. I noted earlier how Blitzer did not call Dole on any of Dole's mistatments of fact. Now, we find out he knew how Dole felt about the SBL's and Bush and didn't call him on it on air -- content to just alow Dole -- on behalf of Bush -- free air time to shiv Kerry.
Democrats now have an unlikely ally in their quest to prove that Bush has a history of these kinds of dirty tricks: Bob Dole. No one has done more to lend establishment respectability to the falsehoods being peddled against Kerry than Dole. The former Senate majority leader and 1996 presidential nominee of the Republican Party made several demonstrably false statements about John Kerry's war record this past Sunday on CNN's Late Edition before saying that "not every one of these people can be Republican liars. There's got to be some truth to the charges."
But Dole also made another statement that day, one that hasn't been aired until now. Of McCain's charge to President Bush during a 2000 debate—"You should beashamed"—Dole told Wolf Blitzer, "He was right."....
