i'm rubber and you're glue and anytime you say "bring it on" it bounces off me and sticks to you

as amazed that the swift boat liars have lasted beyond one news cycle as we are, john kerry challenged awol today to "bring it on." the asspress:

sen. john kerry accused president bush on thursday of relying on front groups to challenge his record of valor in vietnam, asserting, “he wants them to do his dirty work.”

defending his record, the democratic presidential candidate said, “thirty years ago, official navy reports documented my service in vietnam and awarded me the silver star, the bronze star and three purple hearts.”

“thirty years ago, this was the plain truth. it still is. and i still carry the shrapnel in my leg from a wound in vietnam”…

bush and the white house have refused to condemn the ads, despite calls to do so — from sen. john mccain, r-ariz., a former vietnam prisoner of war, as well as from democrats…

speaking of the organization airing the ads that challenge his war record, kerry said, “of course, this group isn’t interested in the truth and they’re not telling the truth...

“but here’s what you really need to know about them. they’re funded by hundreds of thousands of dollars from a republican contributor out of texas. they’re a front for the bush campaign. and the fact that the president won’t denounce what they’re up to tells you everything you need to know. he wants them to do his dirty work”…

kerry said, “of course, the president keeps telling people he would never question my service to our country. instead, he watches as a republican-funded attack group does just that. well, if he wants to have a debate about our service in vietnam, here is my answer: ‘bring it on.”
