This dork wounded himself with his own friendly fire.

The last thing we need is Kerri as president. He might wipeout NYC while intending to take out some camel oasis in Iran.

I don't know why, but that comment reminded me of the scene in Moonstruck where she first meets Nicholas Cage's character. He explains to her how he lost his arm in the slicing machine because his brother came in the store and distracted him. When Cher argues how that possibly could be his brother's fault, Cage argues, "HE COULD DISTRACT YOU AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR WHOLE HEAD!"

Cage can be so funny at times. Last night we watched again Windtalkers (I believe that is the title, the movie about the Navaho Code Talkers. Cage should have gotten an Oscar for his role as the Marine Sargent assigned to "guard" a Navaho Code Talker.

Yes, you're right. Here's what the Swifties' lawyers' letter to the tv station managers said about it:

"This "brown rice" incident with rice/shrapnel lodged in Kerry from his own grenade is also recounted by James Rassman, a Kerry supporter and "the no man left behind" on page 105 of John F. Kerry: The Complete Biography By The Boston Globe Reporters Who Know Him Best, by Michael Kranish, Brian C. Mooney, and Nina J. Easton (New York: Public Affairs, 2004) (the "Kranish book")."

John Kerry : "war hero" or a "war criminal"

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1186991/posts

Answer the question Kerry!

Did you lie about your "heroics" or the "war crimes"?

Can't have it both ways!

RELASE ALL YOUR MILITARY RECORDS BEFORE NOV 2nd!

Unless you are hiding something?

Are you?

Just for comparison purposes:

"In 1942, at the age of 19, Bob Dole joined the Army to fight in World War II. He became a second lieutenant in the Army's 10th Mountain Division, and in the spring of 1943, found himself in the hills of Italy fighting the Nazi Germans. Under a heavy shelling attack, Dole saw the Army radioman go down. He crawled out of his foxhole to try to rescue the wounded soldier, but was instead hit by gunfire himself. After the battle, the medics thought Dole would die, however Dole did survive with a shattered right shoulder, fractured vertebrae in his neck and spine, paralysis from the neck down, metal shrapnel throughout his body and a damaged kidney. The doctors did not think that Dole would ever walk again. Dole was decorated twice. He received two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with Oakleaf Cluster. Dole then received extensive rehabilitation and nine surgeries. Four years later, Dole had achieved a significant recovery. The story is that to this day, Dole still has the cigar box with receipts of donations of the monies collected for his hospital bills by Dawson's Drug Store and the people of Russell, Kansas. He keeps this as a reminder of their generosity and love."

John Kerry, meet Bob Dole. You know, the Bob Dole you liberals made fun of because he held a pen in his injured hand while running for President:

Here's Rassman in the Boston Globe the other day...this is the story about Elliot's "retraction". Rassman sounds confused about whether the rice injury (buttock one) was a part of the purple heart:

Rassmann, reached by telephone yesterday, said he has never had any question that Kerry deserved the Purple Heart. He said there were two separate events: One was earlier in the day, when he and Kerry blew up a rice cache, and the explosion caused some of the rice to hit Kerry, and perhaps some weapon fragments as well. The second involved a mine explosion as Kerry and Rassmann were on patrol. The explosion, Rassmann said, knocked him overboard and threw Kerry against the pilot house, injuring his arm.

Rassmann said that he has always believed that Kerry got the third Purple Heart solely for the injury to his arm as a result of the explosion in the water.

''If he got fragments in the buttocks due to the mine, that is new information to me," Rassmann said.

''I would say there is confusion. Maybe they did lump it together. It was my understanding he got it for the wound being thrown across the pilot house."

Yes, Rassman sounds confused. I think Rassman believes the arm injury alone entitled Kerry to the Purple Heart. It didn't. That was a 'contusion,' or bruising -- no bleeding, nothing broken.

The wound that qualified for a Purple Heart was the shrapnel in the butt -- which Kerry lied about the real cause thereof in his Navy injury report. The underwater mine explosion did not cause it. It was self-inflicted earlier that day, on land, as Kerry tossed a grenade into a rice bin and stayed too close.

Self-inflicted wounds do not qualify for Purple Hearts.

As it has been pointed out... if the shrapnel in Kerry's butt happened due to an underwater mine exploding, how did the RICE end up in his ASS, too???

The Dems planning an full assault on the Vets - beginning 15 Aug, with the intention to once destroy them again. This time - kerry's lawyers are willingly lie about them, destroying the credibility, as one of the insiders at the DNC told www.crushkerry.com, saying 'it is war against the Vets'. Once again, will Kerry accuse them of crimes committed, but worse then what he did. Go - and read up the story. We need to alert the Vets, and assist them as much as possible. We can't let them down again!

As a VietNam vet, I don't have any problems with Kerrys VietNam service ( although I question the length of his tour), but I have real problems with the purple hearts.
Max Cleland, a true decorated VietNam hero, who left 2 legs and an arm in VietNam, does NOT have a purple heart, because the accident that caused the disability was not associated with combat. For Sen. Kerry to claim 3 purple hearts for minor injuries, only cheapens Max Cleland's service.





Max Clelands Military Service

Army ROTC; Stetson University
U.S. Army 1965-1968; Commisioned Second Lieutenant and promoted to Captain 1968
Airborne, Ft. Benning, Georgia
Aide de Camp, Ft. Monmouth, New Jersey
Volunteered for duty in Vietnam in 1967
Wounded in grenade explosion April 8, 1968 (lost both legs and right arm)
Recovered from injuries "in various Army and Veterans Administration hospitals"
Awarded Bronze Star and Silver Star
Silver Star Medal Citation

Captain Cleland distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous action on 4 April 1968 … during an enemy attack near Khe Sanh.

When the battalion command post came under a heavy enemy rocket and mortar attack, Captain Cleland, disregarding his own safety, exposed himself to the rocket barrage as he left his covered position to administer first aid to his wounded comrades. He then assisted in moving the injured personnel to covered positions.

Continuing to expose himself, Captain Cleland organized his men into a work party to repair the battalion communications equipment, which had been damaged by enemy fire.

His gallant action is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service, and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
Grenade Explosion Accident. In his own words,

On April 8, 1968, I volunteered for one last mission. The helicopter moved in low. The troops jumped out with M16 rifles in hand as we crouched low to the ground to avoid the helicopter blades. Then I saw the grenade. It was where the chopper had lifted off. It must be mine, I thought. Grenades had fallen off my web gear before. Shifting the M16 to my left hand and holding it behind me, I bent down to pick up the grenade. A blinding explosion threw me backwards.

When I saw replays and still photos of moi Kerri's Girlie toss of the ball, I wondered if he ever actually threw a handgrenade. If so, I wouldn't want to be closer than a couple of hundred yards of him. He could grenaded his own boat set all of the ammo blazing.

Wolfstar, please post your pictures of the ball throwing Le Jacquestrap Kerri.

There seems to be this emerging consensus in the elite conservative media (i.e. on FNC (cept Hannity(, not talk radio) that the Swift ad and any mention of Nam (even pointing out what a lying traitor Kerry is) helps Kerry because he went.

Agree or disagree?

I totally think this hurts Kerry, what are these people thinking? Is it just another example of hopelessly detached from the people Beltway media groupthink? Or are they trying to get us to drop it because it is killing Kerry?
