Opinion Journal's Best of the Web Today (a site I scan daily; I recommend you subscribe) wonders whether the Kerry campaign's showing signs of desperation:
In the past 10 days or so, the . . . campaign has:
Accused the Bush administration of planning to reinstitute a military draft.
Recycled the "no blood for oil" canard of the looney left.
Alleged that the Bush administration is somehow in the pocket of the Saudi royal family.
Told voters that, if they elect John Kerry, "people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair and walk again."
Suggested that President Bush was planning a "January surprise" to privatize
Advised Democratic campaign workers to launch a "pre-emptive strike" charging voter "intimidation" on election day even if no evidence exists.
Warned Florida voters that Republicans are "trying to keep people from voting."
Blamed the flu vaccine shortage on President Bush.
Twice called attention to the fact that Mary Cheney is a lesbian.
If you didn't know better, you might think they were getting desperate.
I certainly hope so.
