Kerry vs. Bush in Rolling Stone

In what is being reported as an unprecedented action by a presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry used the "f" word in attacking Bush's war policy in an interview with Rolling Stone:

"I voted for what I thought was best for the country. Did I expect Howard Dean to go off to the left and say, 'I'm against everything'? Sure. Did I expect George Bush to f - - - it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did," Kerry told the youth-oriented magazine.

Brookings Institution presidential scholar Stephen Hess said he can't recall another candidate attacking a president with X-rated language in a public interview.

Kerry was accurately quoted in Rolling Stone, said spokesman David Wade, adding the X-rated language reflects the fact that Bush's Iraq policy "makes John Kerry's blood boil."

Good for Kerry. Better late than never. [link via Instapundit.]

Update: Bush's chief of staff says Kerry was out of line.
