How surreal all of this seems. It's like watching a 'Back To The Future' episode.

Great work, dennisw. You have successfully de-throned Biff Tannen.

Did Kerry just admit to having tripped on acid?

Not at all surprising and to be expected from a 1st boomer.

Conrad was most profoundly influenced by Schopenhauer's, some would say nihilistic but what most describe as pessimistic, philosophy.

Wagner was once a great friend of Nietzsche (like Schopenhauer with Goethe) who would later consider Wagner no longer worthy of his respect. His music contrary to what Kerry has sad is appropriate and also appropriate to have used during the DNC convention ??????

Did Kerry do acid when he was in Vietnam and so hallucinate his experiences there?

I certainly picked up on the surreality of Coppola's movie.

I believe there will be.

God, I hope so, Jeff. It hard to imagine that the lame platitudes sell, that the media want to defeat Bush so bad that they won't expose the lies, and that Kerry is polling as high as he is.

Excellent post! John Kerry has been revealed as a liar on this Cambodia myth and thus, calls into question the authenticity in each of his many "war stories". The tremendous hubris displayed by this fake is demonstrated in the cheeky irony of fluffing a marginal service record into one that is highly decorated and then using that personna to defame one's comrades. His calumny is deliberate, chronic and vile. He implicated his peers, smeared his superiors and robbed the honor of an entire generation of service men and women by his lies. The "Christmas in Cambodia" revelation is our national cue to probe the veracity in his other claims. "Embellishment", Mis-speaking", and "poor recollection" cannot explain falsified reports, perjury to Congress, and opportunism of the worst order. If lie upon lie have piled into a stinking hill from which Mr. Kerry will step into the highest American office,if Christmas was NOT in Cambodia after all, then perhaps the SwiftVets must be accorded a serious hearing. The countless "Real" heroes of Vietnam and all other wars deserve nothing less. That is our duty.

Kerry lied about us and humiliated us when he came home and told LIES about what we were doing in Vietnam. He continued to tell LIES over the years to embellish his status as a politician assuming the role of the courageous antiwar protester defying the evil Nixon and supporting the downtrodden people of Vietnam or, when necessary, as the brave Naval Commander leading his loyal "band of brothers" into battle against the evil and murderous VC. It is all out there now and it is time to set the record straight. The man is a fraud and an opportunist. We have a bloody shirt to wave also and ours has the truth written on it. The Swifties have cojones to stand up to the attacks that are coming at them but they have right and the undying admiration of their generation that went to SEA behind them.

Somewhat on topic, it's not often that padded-out "Director's Cut" re-releases actually manage to drag down the original but that is just what Apocalypse Redux does, makes you realize what an overblown, over-hyped mediocre mess Apocalypse Now really is.

As to Kerry's remarks, South Vietnamese troops five miles into Cambodia? It is to laugh. There were vast areas of their own country where they wouldn't go, much less Cambodia. Unless they were shooting with artillery this is absurd on the face of it.

First Nixon wasn't president and second he commanded a swift boat not a PBR. As I understand it only the water jet driven PBRs went that far up river.

"On more than one occasion, I like Martin Sheen in "Apocalypse Now," took my patrol boat into Cambodia"

Good grief. Walter Mitty was a rank amateur when compared to this nutjob. I gather alot of Kerry's fantasies run parallel to Martin Sheen's screen life, someone needs to tell him that Sheen is an ACTOR, he was never in the military and never actually faced hostile fire in combat. It was a MOVIE. Moreover, Martin Sheen is not, I repeat NOT, the current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

And who the hell pluralizes the word "shrimp" with an "s"?! Did he wash them down with beers?

Well the second depends on the circumstances "a six pack of beer", "a couple of beers" are both correct.

but "I had shrimps and beers" is double wrong.

Hey Dennis! Someone needs to forward this scan over to Rush. I heard Rush today talking about Kerry his Cambodian Christmas fantasy but he seemed to think this fantasy started during a Senate speech in 1986. This scan is also important since it shows that his whole fantasy began in a movie review he wrote in 1979 where the movie blended in with his own fantasies.

BTW, if I get up the energy I might scan my AWARD WINNING comix parody of Apocalypse Now called Apocalyse Wow and post it here. However, someone out there should try to forward the MOVIE REVIEW over to Rush. (Hey, and I thought Algore was the only politico doing movie reviews).

Gotta love the irony!

"...Coppola got carried away with his own trip. Scenes that had great potential were ruined because Coppola didn't know when to stop."
I believe we call that sort of statement "projection."

If you'd like the FULL size pic, let me know via Freep mail and I can send you an email of the original size pic. It is pretty big, though, fyi. (Showed to be around 2 MB).

His presidency would be even worse than Bill Clinton's, and I had not thought that possible.

Don't forget "I'm not going to run for the Senate" Hillary stands ready to fill in when F'n's campaign boat sinks. She'll just nudge smiley boy Edwards off to the side to make certain he remains VPINO.

Agreed. I also thought Gore would have been much worse had he been able to litigate his way into the oval office.

S.O.L. was the freeper with this, I had MeekoneGop help him re scanning and posting it.

When I first read and each time I have reread it (over a dozen times), I had and still have the same feeling that you posted:

"I don't know which is more disturbing -- Kerry's outright lie about taking his boat into Cambodia, or the way he got so overheated in his complaints about a freakin' movie."

Besides being a serial liar, Kerry is a lunatic as per his own words.
