I was shocked to hear Evan Thomas explain to Imus that the time Kerry enlisted was two full years before GWB served and by then the nation was sick with the war and everyone was trying their utmost to get out of serving. He's convinced that had Kerry waited two years, he would have tried his utmost to get a deferment.

That's a good point about JfnK.
I watched most of Rather's blockbuster interview just now, and really wished I could've smacked the smug look off of his face. Then I turned to Fox in time to hear Nader harping on the same stuff. Grrrrrrrrr

Didn't Kerry try to get a deferment to study in France? When it was turned down he joined the Navy.

Kerry couldn't have waited two years; he graduated from college and his FOUR student deferments ran out; he tried to get a fifth deferment to go to study in France (really) but was turned down; that's why he enlisted in the NR.

Now, who got HIM in????
