Kerry Campaign Attacks NASA

The Kerry campaign has attacked NASA after the release of embarrassing photos of John Kerry in a "clean-suit" were released to the media. Mary Beth Cahill, John Kerry's campaign manager asserted that the release of the photos was a "smear campaign" against the Democratic candidate. She made the allegations in an interview with Fox News, and Drudge has posted the transcript.

The picture is embarrassing and is being compared to the Michael Dukakis flub in which he donned a helmet and rode around in a tank. The comparison should be made, and is just another in a series of embarrassing moments this week for Kerry. It will be interesting to see if Kerry gets the expected bounce from the convention after a week of missteps.
