Norm Coleman on the Dems' Double-Speak

In the small part of the country that is Minnesota, one get the chance see and hear Kerry/Edwards while they're here and contrast that to what they say and do everywhere else. The rhetoric is group-specific and their story changes based on their audience.

Here's a perfect example from Sen Norm Coleman's story in the Strib:

Last Tuesday, Sen. John Edwards told folks in Hibbing that he and Sen. John Kerry would fight for their right to "go in the national parks and national forests and ride on a snowmobile."

But then here's what the Kerry/Edwards website says about the same subject:
"John Kerry will reinstate the Clinton Administration's phase-out of noisy and polluting snowmobiles that have been overrunning some of our most precious lands, including Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park." The Web site goes on to explain that snowmobiles and recreational vehicles simply "do not mix with sensitive wildlife resources and our nation's most treasured wild places."

The entire article has more examples of their double-speak.
