CHARLES HAS IT RIGHT: "Gd save us if this man is elected president"

little green footballs: "This may be the worst thing said yet by a Presidential candidate; even as Muqtada al-Sadr’s goons are killing coalition soldiers, John Kerry told NPR this morning that al-Sadr and his jihad newspaper are a legitimate voice."

In the next breath, however, the White House hopeful caught himself and quickly changed direction, adding, “Well, let me . . . change the term legitimate. It belongs to a voice — because he has clearly taken on a far more radical tone in recent days and aligned himself with both Hamas and Hezbollah, which is a sort of terrorist alignment.”
