WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Today, Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-N.J.) reacted to Vice President Dick Cheney's comment that Sen. John Kerry "doesn't have deeply held convictions about right and wrong." Sen. Lautenberg issued the following statement:

"John Kerry had enough conviction to sign up for the military during wartime, unlike the Vice President, who had a deep conviction to avoid military service," said Senator Lautenberg. "Senator Kerry is a veteran who understands war, and knows that the key to success is to rally allies to your cause. President Bush's arrogant policies in Iraq have not worked. Vice President Cheney should spend less time attacking Senator Kerry and more time trying to fix the Bush Administration's mess in Iraq."

Dick Cheney had the conviction to be elected to Congress legally.

The more people like the Crypt Keeper keep bringing up Vietnam, the deeper the quagmire for JFinK, who has this one issue to run on, and is losing it rapidly.

Here's the shorthand version of Lautenbergs statement.

"Senator Kerry is a veteran yada, yada, yada."

How apopros. The Lurch has to hide behind a walking corpse rather than address the Vice President as a man. What's he afraid of?

If Kerry had done anything substantial in his twenty -plus years in the US Senate, he wouldn't be in such hot water with the Swift Boast dissenters right now.

So the corpse of Frank Lautenburg, New Jersey's junior Senator, relegated to a broom closet office in the basement because the Democrats didn't give him his seniority back, decides to speak? Whatever.

Oh, it gets even better. The rumor is that it's because of a male-on-male sexual harassment suit.

"John Kerry had enough conviction to sign up for the military during wartime -- "

"... where, after completing his top secret super-duper-choco-peanut-nutty spy missions in Cambodia, he promptly went off to save us all, single-handed, from the dread menace of the FILTHY, STINKING MOON NAZIS -- !"

"John Kerry had enough conviction to sign up for the military during wartime, unlike the Vice President, who had a deep conviction to avoid military service,"

Kerry signed up after being refused a year-long deferrment so that he could study in France.
