I have to say that this development in the South Dakota Senate race between Democratic incumbent Tom Daschle and Republican John Thune is truly bizarre.

The latest ad from the Daschle campaign features a brief clip of Daschle hugging George Bush after the 9/11 attacks. The RNC sent a letter to Daschle's campaign that read in part:

Quote

"As you are no doubt aware, President Bush has not indicated any support for your campaign, and in fact has endorsed your opponent, John Thune. The implication from your advertisement that President Bush supports you is false and misleading."

Daschle's response:

Quote

Daschle said the ad was designed to show that there are times when the nation's leaders need to show emotion in a public way.

"The country saw leadership at its best," he said.

Uh . . . while I agree, . . . does this mean that Daschle is supporting the President? "Leadership at its best"? Wow! That's quite an endorsement from the Senate minority leader!  :hehe:
"Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything wrong, he was arrested."
