John Kerry couldn't think much less read to children

A great post on comparing a quote from Kerry criticizing Bush for reading to school children for 7 minutes before excusing himself after the first plane hit the World Trade Center with a quote of Kerry saying he couldn't even think until the pentagon was hit over 40 minutes after the second plane hit the World Trade Center. It's easy for Kerry to say what he would have done 3 years later. After the first plane hit, nobody knew that we were under attack. First reaction was that it was an accident. It wasn't until the second plane hit that we knew that we were under attack.

UPDATE: Powerline reports on this as well but emphasizes how politically stupid it is to remind everyone of Bush's finest hour in how he dealt with the tragedy of September 11 and how it paints himself as divisive and unlikable.
