Kerry flap doesn't alter polls

If this article came out tomorrow, it would probably be the last word on the whole, lame affair. This might have come out a tiny bit early to be definitive, but it's still good news.

Sen. John Kerry's "botched joke" about the Iraq war riled fellow Democrats and temporarily energized Republicans, but it is unlikely to have much, if any, impact in Tuesday's congressional elections.

That was the view of political analysts on Thursday as polls continued to show Democrats headed toward winning control of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate from President George W. Bush's Republicans.
