Republicans redefine Howard Dean in "extreme makover" 

I signed up for emails from the Bush/Cheney campaign several months ago. I just received one of the more bizarre missives, ostensibly authored by Jeb Bush. He begins, "The extreme makeover of John Kerry continued last night in Boston. Centrist Democrats paraded across your television screen to praise the most liberal Senator in Washington ..." Stop. Wait. Hold it. Unless people were watching the convention using TiVo last night, they were watching Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy, and another Democrat who the Republicans like to brand as a radical liberal, Barack Obama. Who is giving who an extreme makeover to who?

Jeb also reveals a new Kerry flip-flop: "[John Kerry] told Wisconsin voters he likes to go hunting with his 'trusty 12-gauge double-barrel,' but he received an "F" from the National Rifle Association." One minute, Kerry is joyfully popping buckshot and the next minute the NRA gives him an "F"? Thje flip-flopper!
