Walk and Chew Gum At the Same Time

John Kerry says a president should be able to do that.

The Bush campaign countered that Senator Kerry had been a flip-flopper on walking, saying he’d voted in 1991 to repeal the tax credit on sneakers; the Kerry campaign said that vote was in protest against the flood of foreign-made sweat socks. And they produced records that George W. Bush once bummed a stick of Juicy Fruit off one of his Texas Air National Guard buddies in 1969 and never paid him back.

High-minded debate indeed.
