And so they signed up with the weirdly incoherent narrative of John Kerry -- a celebrated anti-war activist suddenly "reporting for duty" as a war hero and claiming that, even though the war was a mistake and his comrades were murderers and rapists, his four months in the Mekong rank as the most epic chapter in the annals of the Republic.

It's worth contrasting the fawning media admiration for Kerry's truncated tour of duty with their total lack of interest in Bob Dole's years of service two presidential campaigns earlier.

It's worse than that: in 1992, when Papa Bush ran against Clinton, no less than Garry Trudeau questioned the veracity of the flying record of H.W., suggesting that rather than being a hero pilot who survived an attack that killed two crewmen, he was a substandard pilot.

I meant to go find and post those Doonesbury strips during the SwiftVet frenzy, but never did. I should, but can't promise I will.

As a Boston Brahmin, he's the high priest of post-modern liberalism. As a Heinz Blue Blood, Kerry is an elite Democrat snob. The Drive By Media is wowed by both aspects of his less than sterling character.

Trudeau used to be funny, in the 70's. When Reagan was elected, he stopped being funny and turned into a true hack, and has gotten worse over the years. If you think Ketchup Boy is humorless, get a load of 'Doonsbury' these days... ;^)
