Flop flipper! Flop flipper!

If Kerry flip flops, and the only people around are CBS, NBC, ABC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago-Sun Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, etc, does it make a sound?

I have no doubt, I've never had any doubt -- and I've said this publicly -- about our ability to be successful in Afghanistan. We are and we will be. The larger issue, John, is what happens afterwards. How do we now turn attention ultimately to Saddam Hussein?
You want to turn attention to Saddam, just two months after 9/11! But, that's the wrong war at the wrong time with the wrong armies, with the wrong WMD, with the wrong allies, with the wrong mass graves, and the wrong terrorist connections, not to mention the wrong leadership and wrong planning.

Now, I don't really like the incessant howls of "flip flop!" because, of course, a politician is entitled to change his mind. But when Kerry attacks the president for doing something that, at the time it took place, he had advocated doing, then it makes Kerry look like a cheap political opportunist, at the least, to continually bring up Tora Bora. And, yes, a flip flopper.

One things for sure, if they gave out awards for armchair quarterback, I would nominate Kerry for the Heismann. That is, assuming he's still limber enough to pull this one off.
