The Opposition Is Idiotic

I thought the "global test" flap was retarded, but the RNC is topping themselves yet again. Kerry said:

”We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they’re a nuisance,” the article states as the Massachusetts senator’s reply.

”As a former law enforcement person, I know we’re never going to end prostitution. We’re never going to end illegal gambling. But we’re going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it isn’t on the rise. It isn’t threatening people’s lives every day, and fundamentally, it’s something that you continue to fight, but it’s not threatening the fabric of your life.”

What does the RNC glean from that?  They say taht Kerry said:

"The war on terrorism is like a nuisance."
