Was John Kerry’s speech intended as a trap? The temptation to make fun of Kerry for calling someone else a flip-flopper is almost irresistable — but every response advances the McCain-as-flip-flopper meme.
Alright, maybe it’s a stretch to think that Kerry might be that clever.
UPDATE: Mea culpa: I scanned the prepared text quickly (and was multitasking during the speech), and I missed the self-deprecating “talk about being for it before you were against it” line. So Kerry was aware of the irony.
