BATTLE OF THE VICES!

Wonkette has the best recap.

Bush-Cheney’s global test: You must be able to beat up Howard Dean. “If [Kerry] can’t stand up to the pressures of Howard Dean, how can he stand up to terrorists?” Of course: the terrorist threat posed by Howard Dean. We’re pretty sure we saw him trying to set his shoes on fire during Letterman last night. . .

(It was a draw, by the way. Much like the election probably will be.)
