I Was Bob Kerrey Before I Was John Kerry

Hat Tips to my local GOP Team Leader, Ace of Spades HQ, and to Free Republic:

Fox News just had a news segment where the Kerry campaign, in angry response to Bush claims that Kerry attended few Intelligence briefings, said that Kerry had at one time been the Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence campaign.
In response, the Bush people gleefully (Fox's word) returned fire by saying that it was BOB Kerrey, not JOHN Kerry who was Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence committee.

And thanks to a helpful commenter there, a direct quote from Kerry's site:

John Kerry is an Experienced Leader in the Intelligence Field

– John Kerry served on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 8 years and is the former Vice Chairman of the Committee. Kerry joined the Committee in early 1993 and served until early 2001.

[Bold Added]

Except John Kerry wasn't the VC of the IC. Bob Kerrey was.

As has been asked -- don't they have fact checkers at the DNC or Kerry's campaign?

Will this guy ever get anything straight?
