Did John Kerry Vote in Favor of Cannibalism?

DID JOHN KERRY VOTE IN FAVOR CANNIBALISM?….I know you’re going to think I’m making this up, but I’m not. Today, the esteemed oppo research squad at the National Review posted a damning expose of Howard Dean accusing him of being in favor of…..

Incest.

Honest. They really did. Here’s the link to “Howard Dean?s Incest Vote,” the sordid Reagan-era tale of a 65-year-old woman who wanted to marry her 86-year-old uncle, the Republican legislator who wanted to let them, and how a young Howard Dean didn’t think it would do any harm. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll wonder why you bothered clicking the link!

Man, these guys are really getting desperate. They must know something about the poll numbers that we don’t.

POSTSCRIPT: By the way, I note that this highly sophisticated piece of political analysis is an “NR Comment” and is therefore bylined “By NRO Staff.” That really won’t do. Whoever wrote this should proudly step up to the plate and take credit for it. Enquiring minds want to know.
