I find it bizarre that President Bush, or should I say some silly scallywags fighting on his behalf, can find any kind of fault with John Kerry’s behavior before, after, or during Vietnam. Bush has records supporting the fact that he’s spent at least a few days on an Air National Guard base getting some cavities filled while war waged on. Kerry, on the other hand, has pages and pages of documentation to back up an admirable bravery and courage in real battle. Read them. They are nothing short of an 80’s Stephen J. Cannel TV action drama.
And while we’re on the subject of soldiers sacrificing life and limb for their country when they really don’t have to, it’d be remiss not to mention Pat Tillman. For me, his death underscores the severity of our situation on both war fronts. Chickenhawks take note. If Woodward’s right and money really was diverted from Afghanistan to Iraq, the president has a hell of a lot of explaining to do. Not that he or anyone in his administration is capable of doing that.
Because he’s been forced to, and only because he’s been forced to, Kerry is calling Bush out on the military issue. And I hope he goes hardcore. The long-faced man is revealing more positive attributes and character as each pathetic attempt to put him down backfires right back at Bush.
