So, you've been away. What was the main story while you were out of the loop?
Regarding the presidential election, for the past month there really has been only one story: the Swift Boat thing.
You're not really saying that was an important story?
Devastating to the Kerry campaign. Perhaps crushing. The polls are indicating Bush is back on top on the pivotal security/terror question.
But the Swiftvets is a 527 group put up to it by Bush. How can anyone believe these looney tunes?
They insist they are independent. Surely they and their million dollars or so of ads are as independent of the Bush campaign as the numerous leftie 527s and their $63 million of ads (says The Washington Post) are independent of the Kerry campaign.
Still, Vietnam. How is a 30-year-old war relevant to this year's election? Surely Bush and Kerry should be talking about more important things.
Kerry brought it up. He has made his Vietnam service a central reason for voters to elect him to fight the war on terror more effectively than Bush has.
Kerry's heroic, be-medaled record of Vietnam service is indisputable.
Then why won't he release the full file to demonstrate (a) that he didn't embellish the record by writing up his own medals and (b) how he could have received, for instance, a Silver Star with combat v when such a medal is not widely known to exist?
