The folks at PowerLine make this interesting observation:
An old trial lawyer once told me that if your case has three "yes buts" in it, you better not take it to trial. President Bush has a huge "yes but" when it comes to Iraq (yes we found no WMD, but I was told we would and anyway we're better off with Saddam gone). However, Kerry has his own on Iraq (yes I voted to authorize the war, but I didn't mean we should fight it). It looks like, with the Swiftvet controversy, he has himself "yes but" number two, with several candidates for number three lurking.
