Gone fishin'

Published October 9, 2004 12:54AM (EDT)

Maybe it's just us, but with John Kerry regularly charging that Bush is checked out from reality while news gets worse in Iraq -- and with today's job numbers -- was it a great idea for Bush to go fishing today? He could well have walked into a debate one-liner.

The debate is about to start in four minutes (we're watching CNN's countdown clock -- it's just like Dick Clark on New Year's Eve!), so we'll see if Kerry uses the material.
