Newsweek ^

Posted on 10/18/2010 1:30:39 PM PDT by hecht

Blumenthal (aka Heydrich jr.) didn't embellish his Vietnam War service. He fabricated having served.

Newsweek have you no shame, no sense of decency?

http://www.newsweek.com/2010/10/17/why-self-financed-candidates-flop.html
Given the personal fortune Linda McMahon has tapped to finance her Republican run for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, you’d think she’d hold a formidable edge against her Democratic opponent, state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. She’s pumped $22 million of her own money into the campaign, while Blumenthal has raised only $3.5 million. She’s used that cash advantage to unload a barrage of ads that paint him as a career politician, clueless about how to create jobs and untrustworthy for having embellished his Vietnam War service. By contrast, she’s depicted herself as exactly the sort of business-savvy outsider these grim economic times call for. With only two weeks to go until Election Day, however, polls show her trailing Blumenthal by about 10 points.

Can’t Blumenthal open his eyes? He reminds me of Harry Solomon (French Smith) on Third Rock from the Sun.

Last year, I made the pro-bowl as an NFL safety. OK, so I am 59 years old and embellished things a little. I thought it would look good on the resume.

Oh, yeah? I was a B-52 pilot in 2001 and my mission over Tora Boara is seared, SEARED in my memory. I dropped all my ordnance over UBL’s cave and saw him running away, on fire. Top THAT one, Blumster!
