Chicken George

John Kerry wants to debate George Bush. George Bush doesn't want to. His justification:

The Bush-Cheney campaign looks for a vigorous debate at the appropriate time. But John Kerry should finish the debate with himself first -- being on both sides of each issue.

So funny! But they still aren't going to debate. They also tried this:

It's interesting to note that John Kerry refused to debate John Edwards one-on-one during the Democratic primaries and now he's the big proponent of debates.

Ouch! But they still aren't going to debate.

What is George Bush's response to John Kerry's call for a debate on this issues? He refuses, then launches a personal attack. I can think of no better example of Bush's outright contempt for substantive debate.
