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."
OK...now I am confused. I thought Kerry was the lap-dog of the VC????
It's a bird, It's a plane, It's Superdog!
LOL.........wasn't there a cartoon character that told tall tales like that?
What was the hamster's name....Uncle Ho?
Max Clelland and Jim Rasmussen must be paid employees of the Kerry campaign to make the expensive trip to Crawford, TX.
Kind of pathetic to see two grown men whining on behalf of their "great leader and glorious hero of the Socialist people" who said to GWB: "bring it on."
No Silver Star for you, mud puppy. You've tracked dirt into our living room.
But seriously, I would have tried being more subtle, and suggested this story needs to be vetted before the evildoers at FR get wind of it.
I don't go to DU. I'm not sure my firewall is strong enough to resist all the cooties.
I remember well April 1968--I was serving in Vietnam--a place of violence--when the news reports brought home to me and my crewmates the violence back home--and the tragic news that one of the bullets flying that terrible spring took the life of that unabashedly maladjusted citizen.
In fact, Kerry did not go to Vietnam until November 1968.
My God! When it comes to lying, this guy makes Clinton look like a piker!
One question - was Kerry on that destroyer in April 1968?
He considers that Vietnam service. His first tour, in fact.
Seriously - do those who should know consider that type of service "serving in Vietnam?"
This story was first approached about half a month ago.
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 keep wondering the same also ... I'm also wondering if that is a bruise on his arm
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
I think he was serving off the coast of Nam.
Who would name their dog for their enemy?
It would be like NYers naming their pets for the hi jackers.
This is starting to make Gore and Clinton look like amateurs.
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?
Obviously he meant his gay "New Soldiers" after he left Vietnam that slurred their country.
Well .. if we can find the date the picture was taken, we'll know
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.
They sure enough do.
"Dims are unable to field a sane candidate two elections in the row."
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!
Of course! Teddy Salad, the CIA undercover agent exposed by the Pythons...
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
Like grandma' always told me ,"always tell the truth and you won't have to remember every word you say".
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.
I think you need to take another look. Your comment could read as if the dog fell into the water. But Kerry's report says the dog was blown not into the water, but onto another boat!
That's some explosion, and Kerry's boat could carry on...
Must have something to do with his potty training.
John what's that in your hand?
Thum ding I save from the potty.
So true. How times have we seen ner do wells log on here with some type to claim to fame only to be shot down in flames five posts later.
Excuse me? I thought Kerry has affirmed, along with the press, that the boats work too far apart for this to be possible? You know, as in "not serving on the same boat so you don't know what happened"? Since I'm a conservative I must be wrong, silly me!
Combat K-9's for Bush do not endorse this thread.
Ummm...weren't they under enemy fire at the time?
I dunno, but if that was me, the whereabouts of a puppy would be the LAST thing on my mind...until I got to safety.
Later in the movie after another moment of mass confusion and return fire Lance (surfer guy) calls out: "Where's the dog?! Where's the dog?!"
I did not know Kerry was African-American back in Nam?
Yep. He was also a chef, a saucé. Ala, Jay 'Chef' Hicks -- a French chef from New Orleans. Which was from the original movie. It wasn't until twenty years later in Redux that the French political scenario returned to the movie.
None of them true.
Did the Dog get a PH ?
No, the dog was an honorable mutt and did not put in for one.
Now that is ridiculously slanderous of you. In fact, I had a Lefty tell me just today, that Kerry is telling the truth, as is Move-On and that the 200+ SBVets are lying "scumbags" paid for by Karl Rove and have been utterly refuted on every claim.
Now we have the dog story, complete with a convenient picture of said entree... cause you see he was, as Zon. pointed out, a French Saucer-guy. They chased a tiger through the jungle. Their Swiftboat hit a mine that sunk the #3 boat, throwing Rassman into the water and VC onto the #4 boat. Later they were torpedoed by a Jap sub while delivering A-bomb parts in the South Pacific and nearly the entire crew eaten by sharks, but not before Kerry rescued them in a Klingon Bird of Prey captured in battle and propelled around the sun back in time to pick up a humpback whale and deliver it to the planet Cambodia in the Vega sector.
I'm there, Man. You just need to have faith.
Well done, Neville 72! Keep up the good work, with another email front.
He says Bring it on before he says Make it stop. And the flipflop continuum goes on.
Guess I dont have the faith. Kerry is such a wacko, can anyone explain how in the flyin' hell this guy polls at 50%? A friggin' dead heat against a decent and visionary leader such as Bush? What gives? Is this country that far gone? (rhetorical question)
And no one is supposed to question it.
It aint over 'til its over and we really do not know until the Ketchup lady sings.
Keep hammering the front line!
