And if the only thing that's keeping the Bush campaign in power is such contortionist lies, why, in all seriousness, isn't the Kerry campaign fighting fire with fire?

I guess the most direct way to answer this question is that the only way to maintain your center is to fight your enemies without becoming them.

On a purely subjective basis, I am willing to bet that Kerry is not willing to indulge in a lie-based character assassination of Bush simply because it would offend his sensibilities to do so. It might not seem sporting to him.

This is the approach I would expect from someone with courage, as Kerry has obviously proven he is is many times over by seeking the most dangerous combat duty he could find and fighting relentlessly in that terrifying arena. I expect that Kerry does not fear losing the election nearly as much as he fears losing his direction.
