DID THE DOG GO INTO CAMBODIA? DID THE DOG BARK AT THE CIA MAN, THUS PROMPTING THE CIA MAN TO GIVE KERRY THE HAT? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DOG?

This Washington Times story by John McCaslin raises a host of new questiosn for John Kerry:

"VC surfaces A new four-legged angle -- actually a dog named "VC" -- has suddenly materialized surrounding Sen. John Kerry 's swift boat service in Vietnam.

In a 2004 presidential candidate questionnaire for Humane USA, Mr. Kerry was asked whether any pets have had an impact on his life.

"I have always had pets in my life, and there are a few that I remember very fondly," Mr. Kerry replied. "When I was serving on a Swift Boat in Vietnam, my crewmates and I had a dog we called VC.

"One day as our Swift Boat was heading up a river, a mine exploded hard under our boat," he continued. "After picking ourselves up, we discovered VC was MIA (missing in action). Several minutes of frantic search followed, after which we thought we'd lost him. We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing a dog."

Said Mr. Kerry: "It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and landed, confused but unhurt, on the deck of another boat in our patrol."

J.J. Scheele, program director of Humane USA, confirmed yesterday that her organization did, in fact, receive the above statement from the Kerry campaign.

No military records on Mr. Kerry's Web site, which aides say is a complete accounting, mention a mine exploding under his boat or any dog. The only report of a mine detonating "near" Mr. Kerry's PCF 94 was March 13, 1969, when Mr. Kerry says he was injured and a man knocked overboard."

Rassman,

Licorice the Hamster.

VC the Dog.

Kerry's nautical stories always seem to have someone, or some animal, falling into the water to be rescued.

I thought military had to have military haircuts

I don't know the answer to that

I have a brother that joined the Marines back in 72 and all the years he was in .. the top of his hair was never that long

He named his dog for the VC........can you imagine anyone really doing that. He was on their side, that's the only reason I can think of.

Who would name their dog for their enemy?

It would be like NYers naming their pets for the hi jackers.

Good job. You both caught what I had totally missed, namely that Kerry was on the USS Gridley at that time. That means that the Opinion Journal has made a mistake and this quote doesn't qualify as a Kerry whopper. Fair is fair, even to a pathological liar like JFK.

Wonder if the bump on the jerk's arm is a Purple Heart wound?

Wrote Kerry: "I knew firsthand from my tours [sic] of duty in Vietnam the bravery and distinction with which gay soldiers served their country."

Obviously he meant his gay "New Soldiers" after he left Vietnam that slurred their country.

John Kerry is Mr. Neutron, with Theresa Heinz Kerry as Mrs. S.C.U.M.

I've heard this story before but it was not involving Kerry.

That's the reason they are Democrats!

Kerry is a gift that keeps on giving. He has been reduced to nothing more than a joke....a bad joke!

There once was a pup named VC
Who rode boats with other Swiftees
A blast from behind
Caused by an enemy mine
Was seared in the mind of the nominee

Did VC land on feet or on hip
When tossed off of that small little ship?
He was only a pup
Not yet a grown up
And already knew how to flop and to flip

Where had he learned this neat little trick
To dodge and to fake and to slip
It must have been John
His friend al along
Who taught him to flip flop so smooth and so quick

Here's a doggie story for you.

A mine explosion so hard it threw VC from one boat to another. Yet, miraculously, Kerry's boat could carry on.
