The New York Times > Washington > Times on the Trail > Mutually Assured Deconstruction The difference is that Bush was genuinely fumbling for words, as he often does when speaking off-the-cuff. Meh. Moses wasn't much of a public speaker, either, by accounts. Kerry seemed to be deliberately attempting self-deprecating humor. At least I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and call it that. He must have seen some poll internals that showed the positive reaction to Bush's jabs at himself.
