I understand why.
I feel for these guys...they like their guy and their beliefs every bit as much as I think my beliefs are right. I give Jaz a hard time because he's a little more rigid in these beliefs than most might be, but give the guy credit for being a good partisan. Nothing wrong with that. But he does seem to hang onto unsupportable ideas and he is a bit eager to buy into the conspiracy theories necessary to explain away some of Kerry's behavior.
Anyway, I would be going nuts if my candidate was Kerry. Not only is he a wet-noodle most of the time, his campaign has been totally out-maneuvered by the Bush campaign. I can imagine the Dems down at the DNC just banging their heads off the walls in total disbelief that the guy who went to Vietnam can't make it an issue (of course this is because Kerry has exaggerated just enough of his biography to call all aspects into question and his less than flattering opposition to the service he now touts as the cornerstone of his campaign).
Oh well, what can you do.
