In college the rugby team routinely participated in something called a "pipe off", which involved a comparison of their manlihood to determine who would start the match. It was certainly infantile, but apparently Wesley Clark and John Kerry are engaging in their own pipe off.
Clark, who didn't compete in Iowa, told campaign workers in Manchester, N.H., that Kerry, a decorated former Navy officer, had a military background "but nobody in this race has got the kind of background I've got."
"It's one thing to be a hero as a junior officer. He's done that, I respect that," Clark said. "But I've got the military experience at the top as well as at the bottom."
I don't want to judge their pipe off, but if you ask me, they're both losers.
