This Harkin character is one piece of work. I noted him when watching the Wellstone memorial-rally. He seemed to me the most odious of the bunch

Sent this to Rush and Boortz -- and a bunch of Iowa papers.

Adding this to my list of bookmarks - and forwarding a copy to SeeBS so they can understand what investigative reporting is all about...

Harkin told Washington Post reporter David Broder, “One year was in Vietnam. I was flying F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions. I did no bombing.” But as the late Senator Barry Goldwater (R.-Arizona) was first to notice, nothing in Harkin’s military service file showed that he ever served in Vietnam. Challenged by Goldwater, an Air Force General, to explain why he was awarded neither the Vietnam Service Medal nor the Vietnam Campaign medal (decorations given to everyone who served in the Southeast Asian theater), Harkin changed his story. Harkin claimed that he instead had flown combat sorties over Cuba during the 1960s.

This was another Harkin lie. Harkin actually served as a ferry pilot who flew aircraft in need of repair between the Philippines and his base in Atsugi, Japan. Harkin at last acknowledged that he never flew air patrols in Vietnam. He began describing himself in speeches as “a Vietnam era veteran.”

What????
We elect liars and allow them to get away with lying. The folks in Iowa are enablers, like the person who buys, cooks and then brings the food to a bed-ridden 1,000 pound man.
This is so shocking! I don't know what we can do about it! Where's the press on these ethical violations. He's the pathological liar elected to the Senate...

"Yeah....that's the ticket"

His current term ends in 2008.

I hope the good people of Iowa will make sure his Senate career ends in 2008 as well!

What comes out of Harkin's mouth is nothing less than putrid.

I hope you Hawkeyes remember dung heap's cheap shot attacks and lies in November.

This pile of crap is having his annual "steak fry" this weekend. I think last year, Clinton was his featured speaker. I apologize to the whole world that I have to share my home state with this creep.

I heard on TV last night that there are still lots of tickets available.

Is THIS the same idiot Iowa Kongressman whom the newpapers once found had a membership in some exclusive, private "massage" club? He explained that he was now a repentant Christian and didn't do that sort of thing (but somehow kept his membership up?)

Harkins needs the Iowa voters to escort him to the Rubbish Heap of Congressional Hypocrites and Liars.

And Dashole should already be there to greet him.

Someone should do a doctoral dissertation on the people of IA's loyalty and dedication to the hard leftist Tom Harkin. The people there must be out of their heads on their allegiance to Harkin.

Harkin has gotten elected and re-elected, in part, by claiming to have served in Vietnam.

During his service in the Navy, Harkin told Washington Post reporter David Broder, “One year was in Vietnam. I was flying F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions. I did no bombing.”

But as the late Senator Barry Goldwater (R.-Arizona) was first to notice, nothing in Harkin’s military service file showed that he ever served in Vietnam.

Challenged by Goldwater, an Air Force General, to explain why he was awarded neither the Vietnam Service Medal nor the Vietnam Campaign medal (decorations given to everyone who served in the Southeast Asian theater), Harkin changed his story.

Harkin claimed that he instead had flown combat sorties over Cuba during the 1960s.

This was another Harkin lie.

Harkin at last acknowledged that he never flew air patrols in Vietnam.

He began describing himself in speeches as “a Vietnam era veteran.”
