let good enough be

I'm not a fan of Sen. Kerry, in case you haven't noticed. But there is one thing that I will not question: he served IN VietNam. Granted, it was only 4 months--but those 4 months should not be open to attack from any quarter.

Why these Swift Boat folks would come out now with such zeal and try to make a splash by attacking Kerry's actions IN VietNam is beyond me. Listen, it's the old "he said, he said" story, and the second one to get the microphone rarely wins that game. This same group tried to get out some "publicity" months ago, and it--appropriately--went nowhere. Catch a hint when it is offered to you!

Especially when all the things Kerry did OUT of VietNam with regards to that war are a matter of public record and equally as damaging to his character. There's a veritable treasure trove of attackable material there, especially as it relates to today's war. This was the group that could've brought those actions to light--instead they make accusations that will never be proven true. Such poor direction--and a total lack of political awareness.

Look, Kerry didn't get a huge bounce from the convention DESPITE the fact that he put his military service on display. Either America doesn't care about it, or they realize that 4 months served 30 years ago doth not a Commander in Chief make. Let's move on, folks--there is nothing to see here.
