News From Mudville: Bush Team Slams Kerry's Red Sox Pitch (washingtonpost.com)

News From Mudville: Bush Team Slams Kerry's Red Sox Pitch (washingtonpost.com): "Shortly before the start of Wednesday night's decisive game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, the Bush campaign carpet-bombed reporters with an e-mail that accused John Kerry of 'sports pandering.' The release ridiculed the Massachusetts senator for being 'against sports before he was for them' and went on to catalogue 'Kerry's sports flubs' -- such as when he called the Green Bay Packers' stadium 'Lambert Field' (instead of Lambeau Field) and when he referred to nonexistent Red Sox slugger 'Manny Ortiz' (a hybrid of actual sluggers Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz).
The Bushies were attempting to spin Kerry's triumphant association with his hometown Red Sox -- who were on their way to the World Series -- into something that feeds their recurring caricature: that he is not a real sports fan but someone who poses as one."

Even "reality TV" isn't this stupid...
