"F" is for "fundamentally flawed." The profoundly silly reaction to John Kerry's use of the F-word has done a quick fade, thanks to Al Gore's endorsement of Howard Dean.
But Kerry's invoking one of George W. Bush's favorite words shouldn't obscure the best quote he gave to Rolling Stone, in answer to a question about Bush's trustworthiness before the congressional vote on Iraq. Kerry said:
It seems to me that we had a right to expect the president of the United States to live up to his word. It was disgraceful, one of the most egregious, fundamentally flawed moments of foreign policy that I can think of in my lifetime.
Dean couldn't have put it any better.
