Politics makes strange bedfellows, and it does funny things to birds, too. Some of our doves, accustomed to flying on only one wing — the left — are auditioning as hawks.
Over 40 years the Democrats have raised sneering at military service and sacrifice to an art form. The mere sight of a uniform, especially if bedecked with medals and service ribbons, often sends liberals into something close to cardiac arrest. Add a flag or two and a little martial music and some Democrats (a former president and his mouthy wife come to mind) imagine they're back at the Nuremberg rally.

"Mr. Bush, fresh out of Yale, enlisted in 1968, first in the Air Force, as do most Air National Guardsmen, and learned to fly the F-102, a Delta-wing interceptor regarded by pilots as a particularly difficult plane to fly. He was then assigned to the Texas Air National Guard at Ellington Air Force Base near Houston. His unit was never called to active duty during the four years he served in Texas. Most Guard units were not. Pilots who flew with him called him one of their best, and his flight instructor told the Boston Globe that "I would rank him among the top 5 percent of the pilots I knew."
Ooooooh, GOOD one, WD! :o)
IMO, this whole 'effort' of Kerry and the left to mislead the American people about the President's Guard duty is going to backfire on them.
The one thing that anyone but a hardcore leftist (or rightist) knows, is that he is an honorable man. This slander isn't going to work.
It might unless we grassrooters keep the word of truth going out to everyone, of every political persuasion, we know. Which is what we're doing all the TIME, I think, starting right here on FR!
That's nothing. Soon, in Kerry's home state, you'll be able to marry a dead horse.
The hypocrisy that the Left has is mind-boggling.
