You know, now they'll paint us not just as elitist nigger haters on plantations, they're going to get a bigger brush and mo' paint to cover us with the old line that WE'LL disparage every veteran that comes along, and they do it with John Kerry sitting in the front row.

(It just doesn't really matter if they endanger our troops, they've got a constitutional patriotic duty to speak out.)

Sarcasm off.

Which is why they want control of the Internet. If it wasn't for this, they would not have to defend themselves or attack.

They control most of the other media outlets.

Exactly.. but I doubt you'll see Kerry in front of a convention saluting and reporting for duty again,posing as a hero..

The Vets have the goods on him..and enough listened to the truth.

John Kerry claimed to deliver weapons to the enemy (i.e. the Khmer Rouge). I'm willing to take him at his word in this (and only this) one instance.

I don't believe the SBVT even addressed that, so how could their credibility suffer because of it?

Murtha and the Mudslingers, EJ Dionne.

Unlike Kerry...which we know that the Navy gave him a dishonorable discharge to start (for his Paris trip to visit the North Vietnam representatives)...and Jimmy Carter gave him a cleaned up discharge, which states that its cleaned up...Murtha appears to have some kinda baggage in the midst of these records...either disciplinary action or a lost stripe. Even if Murtha released the medal paperwork...it'd probably make him look ok in this situation. There is something bigger in those records which he really doesn't want the public to see. Normally, I wouldn't care....he's a loser from Penn and not worth talking about. But he has stepped out of the shadows and pretends that he is representing us veterans at the table...and the spotlight ought to shine completely on the man (and his past). He isn't as clean as he pretends...and he ought not stand in front of the national media as some kinda hero.

>>>Listen to him for five minutes and you know he's [Kerry] a liar. <<<

Not to mention a phony, lightweight, effete flake.

And why they're snuggling up to wounded vets to tell them they're so sorry they lost limbs for a lie and they want to bring everyone else home so the same fate doesn't befall them.

Except it's such an insult to our troops intelligence it won't work.

They haven't gotten the military vote and they know the black vote is beginning to come alive.

This is going to get ugly.

They didn't address it. John Kerry mentioned it after the fact. It was just my obviously disastrous attempt at humor.

Well, I for one thought it was very telling when the MSM said, "The SBVFT are a bunch of poopy-lips fibbers."

Can't argue with logic like that.

I apologize. I am usually pretty good at detecting sarcasm, but I missed it, mainly because this lying article pissed me off.

Something I missed during the campaign. The only holes I recall were the ones shot into Kerry's contrived reputation as a "war hero".

With the level of attacks increasing and becoming even more insane than normal....

I can't help but wonder who may have been caught on the speed dial program...

The right has mostly ignored the story about Murtha. I look through National Review, the columnists at Townhall.com, etc., and no major conservative commentator thinks it's worthy of comment. (I agree--I don't think it's worthy of comment either.)

A few lesser publications on the right have picked it up, and all of a sudden the left is screaming about some huge Rovian conspiracy. The left seems to think all conservatives get a morning fax with the same information.

The wording is significant. Kerry and the media poked some holes in the swiftees account. One I can think of is the picture in the book shows only one sailor supporting Kerry when there were actually several. This hole, like the others I saw, cannot be considered significant.
