Fair game

Babble on.

From Tod Lindberg's column in the Washington Times:

Did Mr. Kerry, or the Kerry campaign, really think that nobody was going to use the audio about American war crimes from his congressional testimony against him? Is he somehow under the delusion that because he went to Vietnam, Vietnam veterans will support him (or at least shut up) quite regardless of what he said when he got home? Did he miss the part of the subsequent decades in which the rest of us learned that one of the things certain (pardon my French) pour pisser a certain sort of Vietnam veteran was being called a war criminal? Does he really think that it would take the evil genius of Karl Rove to think to use it against him?

It's possible both to have served bravely, and to have exaggerated your service. It's possible to be a veteran, and still be unfit for command. It's possible to have fought in Vietnam, but not be representative of those who fought with you.

John Kerry and the American public are both figuring that out right now.

Babble off.

What? The Washington Times linked to me? ;-)

(Hey, just 'cos I'm on vacation doesn't mean I'm not paying attention.)
