No, wait, it's not quite over. Kerry got one final chance to explain the $87 billion vote... and he flubs it. D'oh. The "I didn't want to supply a slush fund to Halliburton" line was a good one, but dammit, it's got no context around it.

How hard is this? "There were two bills before Congress to fund our troops. One just rang up the deficit even further -- that was the president's bill, the one I voted against. The other one, the one I voted for, scaled back the tax cut to the rich to pay for that body armor, and that humvee armor."

After that Kerry can natter on about who made the bigger mistake and Halliburton slush funds all he wants.
