I wonder if the Village Gasbags will be able to figure out who is demeaning whose service?
“I can’t speak for them, but we all know that General Clark, as high-ranking as he is, his record in his last command I think was somewhat less than stellar.”
– Orson Swindle, John McCain Campaign
Just in case there’s still some question what actually demeaning a war veteran’s service looks like:
Louis Letson: “I know John Kerry is lying about his first Purple Heart because I treated him for that injury.”
Van O’Dell: “John Kerry lied to get his bronze star…I know, I was there, I saw what happened.”
Jack Chenoweth: “His account of what happened and what actually happened are the difference between night and day.”
Admiral Roy Hoffman: “John Kerry has not been honest.”
Adrian Lonsdale: “And he lacks the capacity to lead.”
Larry Thurlow: “When he chips were down, you could not count on John Kerry.”
Bob Elder: “John Kerry is no war hero.”
Grant Hibbard: “He betrayed all his shipmates…he lied before the Senate.”
Joe Ponder: “He dishonored his country…he most certainly did.”
Bob Hildreth: “I served with John Kerry…John Kerry cannot be trusted.”
The plain fact is, the Gasbags have no moral or rational authority to judge the matter, they relinquished their credibility and responsibility to do so four years ago.
