I’ve been informed that federal campaign law requires me to post an opinion about that whole silly controversy over the Kerry “bunnysuit” photos taken during his visit Monday at KSC. (Actually, the law doesn’t require it, but sometimes it seems that way.) My use of the word “silly” above should plainly describe how empty an issue this is; you can also read what Keith Cowing has to say about it at NASA Watch. But don’t take my word for it: here’s what Tucker Carlson and George McGovern said about it on CNN’s Larry King Live last night:
CARLSON: And, in fact, or the weird, you know, NASA outfit.
KING: That’s with all the NASA people. Why was that weird? That’s what they all wear.
CARLSON: Really, yes, but they wear it in the privacy of their own space capsule not, you know…
MCGOVERN: He looked like a teletubby.
There you go. Don’t say we don’t have insightful commentary on the key space issues of the day here.
