I'm not talking about what he did in 1969. His bravery then speaks for itself.
However, his citation for bravery then doesn't give him carte blanc to become some sort of apologist for the very conservatives who served with him during the Reagan years.
Yes, he has become a candy ass. And, yes, Oliver North kicked his ass in the ring.

What he did in 1969 does give him carte blanche not to be called a "candy ass" by anyone, ever.

("I won't be reconstructed, and I do not give a damn.")
Webb simply helps the left's spin.
When you have literally hundreds of blogs, organizations an political action committee's on both the left an right doing it out day after day there is bound to be individuals on both sides that go to far.
The media simply tars the entire conservative movement and the Republican Party when any one on the right steps over the line. They support this by finding at least one Republican talking head to join in the condemnation.(McCain attacking the swifties for example)
Just the opposite happens when someone on the left says something outrageous. The left totally ignores it and if pressed simply dismisses it as someone being emotional because they care so much. In the lefts house of mirrors you do not even hold the Democratic Party responsible for what the head of the party Dean says. On the other hand blogs which are one person operations out of someones home are portrayed as speaking for the entire conservative movement.
It is the variation of the old propaganda trick where someone in the middle of a controversy starts talking about all the hateful mail they receive and the profane threats on their answering machine. Implying that everyone who opposes them are nasty people, when the fact is that both sides of any controversy receive threats and curses.
Webb helps perpetuate the lefts myth of themselves as always taking the high road in political debate.
