I do think Bush did a great job of neutralizing and trivializing Kerry's contentions, just by being folksy.  For my money, "need some wood?" was classic, and will go down in history with "I won't hold my opponent's youth and inexperience against him" and "you, sir, are no Jack Kennedy."  That was a real zinger that just really connected, regardless of the truth or error of what Kerry was talking about before.  Because as soon as Bush said "Need some wood", Kerry's entire tirade against people posing as small business owners became irrelevant. 


Since when does not having an intelligent answer make someone "folksy?"  And who the hell wants a "folksy" president?  What's Bush going to say when he's at a meeting and foreign leaders throw tough questions or allegations at him... "want some wood?"

the thing about the got wood response was that was actually a gaffe.  he does own stock in a lumber company and he is categorized as a small business owner because of it...what a moron
