During the DemCan debates, Calvin Woodward took it on himself, with help of Kathleen Hall Jamieson, of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, to fact check every word out of the candidates' mouths. He took exception to John Kerry saying that he slept on the Mall during a famous demonstration against the Vietnam War. He kept on Howard Dean's use of statistics to criticize the BushCo tax cuts as weighted to favor the rich. He accused Sen. Kerry of oversimplifying the issue of Medicare reform and the imminent costs ahead to seniors.
Based on the standards he set for political campaigning then, you would guess that he'd be all over Team BushCo's recent ad about Sen. Kerry supporting a 50-cent per gallon gas tax increase. You'd be wrong.
