Politicizing 9/11, continued 

Below, in the comments, we were debating whether or not the Kerry campaign's attacking Bush for the 9/11 ads constituted "politicizing 9/11" in its own right. We came to some sort of consensus, which was basically that it sort of is, and to that extent, Kerry and his surrogates should not do so. This, however, is the right way to bring 9/11 into the presidential race:
Kerry, who has accused Bush of impeding a federal commission investigating the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, said Monday while campaigning in Florida, ``If the president of the United States can find time to go to a rodeo, he can spend more than one hour before the commission.''
Via Atrios. This is more than a legitimate campaign issue--it's a legitimate moral issue. Keep at it, JFK.
