Patrick Ruffini, the Bush campaign’s webmaster, passes this item along:
Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America today, John Kerry offered yet another explanation for his trademark line “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it”: it was late at night, and he was tired:
“It was a very inarticulate way of saying something and I had one of those moments late in the evening when I was tired in the primaries and didn’t say something clearly. But it reflects the truth of the position, which is, I thought, to have the wealthiest people in America share the burden of paying for that war. It was a protest. Sometimes you have to stand up and be counted.”
Just one problem: Kerry made the statement at noon. Maybe his watch was set on Paris time.
