Thanks "Liberal Bias" Media!

Unlike GW with his numerous decisions, the Kerry campaign is admitting mistakes were made.

Mary Beth Cahill stated they underestimated the adverse effect attack ads (esp. the SBVT smear) would have on Kerry's candidacy. She said, "This is the best $40,000 investment made by any political group, but it was only because of the news coverage that it got where it did."

While she points out the long-obvious truth that the right-wing label of liberal media bias is a farce (has the media ever been more cowed?!), the fact that GOP attack ads are effective comes as a revelation is inexcusable. How much more evidence did the Kerry crew need to realize such low-life tactics do indeed work on the voting public? Just look at what Bush/Rove did to McCain in SC -- that's not ancient history! Hell, Clinton set up a so-called war room to specifically combat this problem.

Kudos for Kerry's camp showing it's OK to admit mistakes (how refreshing!). Yet, too bad on this point that they appear to come off as astonishingly naive.
