Kerry’s less-than-awesome service record in inconsequential to me: it’s his record immediately after his time on Vietnam that is important. He met with the North Vietnamese and then spent all of his time betraying his country - and his former shipmates - to get the enemy to win. He is a traitor, period. Lucky for him, he ran for office in Massachusetts - he couldn’t have run for dogcatcher anywhere else.
A nation that doesn’t execute its traitors ends up electing them.
