AP: Can't Trust Kerry

That, at least, is my reading of this paragraph from an AP story on Kerry "hunting for conservative voters" (more election violence!):

Kerry returned after a two-hour hunting trip wearing a camouflage jacket and carrying a 12-gauge shotgun, but someone else carried the bird he said he shot.
"Someone else carried the bird he said he shot." Now, I don't think Kerry can be trusted either. It's pretty clear that he'll say or do anything. Even I, however, am willing to believe that he could hit a goose with a double-barrel 12-gauge.

In other news, Kerry -- who has been taking pains to hunt in every state he's visited lately -- is going to be giving a speech on his values. His spokesman, McCurry, said, "The fact that Senator Kerry is a person of faith is something that might help voters who are undecided."

Personally, I would be surprised to learn that any remaining undecided voters are very religious. People for whom faith is a guiding light usually don't have a lot of trouble making up their minds on the important questions. What's to be undecided about, if you know your own moral center?

In addition to which, churches are involved in this election more than previous ones. I can't think that you'd need to explain your faith to religious voters...

...unless you're having trouble with a core constituency, that is.

UPDATE: Via PoliPundit, a writer who sees some similarities between Hunting Kerry and Elmer Fudd.
Elmer is the hunter who can't really stomach the kill. In fact, in the Bugs Bunny short A Wild Hare, he's grief stricken when he believes he's really shot the rabbit. "I'm a murderer!" he wails, to Bugs's (and the audience's) supreme amusement. (Kerry went from War Hero to Anti-War activist upon his return, the children of Vietnam vets have a message for Kerry.)
Elmer Fudd: Reminiscient of Genghis Khan!

UPDATE: Reader Gracie provides evidence that, once again, Kerry is trying to play the game from both sides:

UPDATE: Drudge apparently got a longer report from the journalists sent to cover the report. It sounds like they were pretty well torqued about the whole thing.

My favorite part is where they're speculating about whether or not Kerry will actually dare to be seen bringing back a dead animal. Or maybe Osama bin Laden, who'll have been hiding in the bush.
