    Some new political `f' words 

    John Kerry's so-called flip-flops on issues have been constant Bush campaign targets. They evoke chants of ``flip-flop, flip-flop'' from the president's partisans. On Monday, another corner was heard from when Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, spoke at George Washington University and called Bush ``the world record-holder for flip-flops'' and added that ``No matter how many rhetorical double-twisting flips Presidnt Bush performs, his disingenuous claim that the (Iraq) war has made America safer is wrong, and may well be catastrophically wrong.''

    Kennedy called the war in Iraq ``a toxic mix of ignorance, arrogance and stubborn ideology.''

    Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean might give Teddy a 9.9 on that assessment of double-twisters. Dean, promoting his new book, You Have the Power, agreed with Kennedy (what did you expect?): ``You know that stuff on (John Kerry) flip-flopping - George Bush has had more flip-flops in four years than John Kerry has had in 20.''
    Dean, who failed in his bid for the Democratic nomination, gave the president his own f-ing title. He calls him the ``flim-flam man.''
