The Culture: Politicians of all stripes . . .

Here's one to ponder:

John Kerry, battling in a leadoff contest far too close to call, said Saturday that rivals for the Democratic nomination for president are trying to dampen his momentum with a "smear effort."

Two other candidates, Howard Dean and Dick Gephardt, circulated to reporters on Friday comments Kerry made five years ago indicating he would drastically scale back the U.S. Department of Agriculture and revamp farm subsidies. Iowa is dominated by farming, and politicians of all stripes here support subsidy programs. [AP] (empasis added)
Wouldn't that make them politicians of the same stripe?
