POLITICS: Not in the Same Boat, Part II

I'm on my way out of town again on business. It turns out that for all the Kerry camp's blather about how (most of) the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth never served on the same boat with John Kerry, one of his vocal "band of brothers" who spoke at the Democratic Convention may not have been either, and may be lying today. I've said for some time that I wasn't interested in exactly what Kerry did to earn medals in Vietnam, but it looks like the swift boat story is gaining some real traction anyway based on problems with the, er, accuracy of Kerry's narrative.

Captain Ed is on this story like a starving man on a sandwich. Go check him out.

I agree with your point. But exactly how Kerry earned his medals may be a red herring in the discussion of service when comparing him and Bush. Bush's dismal "service" record pales to Kerry's...despite how Kerry "earned" the medals.

This story is updating so much I'm having trouble keeping up with who's saying what and who's correcting whom.

One thing's for sure - Kerry got caught lying about Cambodia & the lefty blogosphere couldn't care less.
