"Democratic senator and certain presidential nominee John F. Kerry, gave the middle finger to a Vietnam veteran at the Vietnam Memorial Wall on Memorial Day morning," NewsMax.com reported yesterday.

"Ted Sampley, a former Green Beret who served two full tours in Vietnam, spotted Kerry and his Secret Service detail at about 9 a.m. Monday morning at the Wall. Sampley walked up to Kerry, extended his hand and said, 'Senator, I am Ted Sampley, the head of Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry, and I am here to escort you away from the Wall because you do not belong here.'

It looks like he's about to give his now infamous one-finger salute to the country.

Profanity and now the finger. I guess crassness is a sought after quality for the Dems.

I wonder if this will get as much airtime as Bush's "Clymer" remark...

No, I don't.

What's with the "Tour" logo? Sheesh.
This is a Presidential election, not a rock concert.

The WashTimes is reporting it! Interesting. Big thread on this yesterday, from a NewsMax article.

NewsMax.com had this first and I was skeptical. NewsMax was right. I won't be so quick to doubt them again.

They're just reporting that NewsMax reported it. No confirmation, as I see it.

"Just then, Kerry, in front of the schoolchildren, other visitors and Secret Service agents, brazenly 'flashed the bird' at Sampley and then yelled out to everyone, 'Sampley is a felon!'

Jeez. The finger and a "Sampley is a felon!"?? Way to defend yourself, John! Way to show your impeccable class!

I see Kerry is now copying Dubya's Interstate 2004 logo. What an a-hole. By the way, that star logo on Kerry's t-shirts is almost identical to the logo that is ony my daughter's Aaron Carter cd!! What a wuss!!!

McCain was a POW, but after becoming a US Senator political necessity - normalization of relations with Viet Nam - became more important than the POWs.
