The subject and the attitude behind this have brought up so much anger and disgust in me (again) that I can barely see straight. All of a sudden these people--who wouldn't dream of enlisting, AD or not--are flocking experts on the military. All of a sudden it's sooo important that a CinC must have military experience, much less a "spotless" record of same. This would be the same military that they/their parents spat upon and called baby-killers a generation ago.
And, of course, the mainstream media (MSM) believe that no military are swift enough (heh) to read/watch John Kerry's 1971 betrayal of his cohorts before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. If we have enough average IQ to even know anything about computers, we're too busy gaming or checking out prÖn sites, according to them. CSPAN? You've got to be kidding.
A growing number of veterans are not buying it, but Senator Kerry and
his PR machine the MSM are stupid enough to think that this so-called scandal will erode the president's increasingly high military approval rating. Veterans are stupid enough--in the minds of the MSM--to buy their latest transparent smear campaign, even though the weapon used isn't even a new one.
Guess what? If GWB didn't already have my vote, he would have certainly gained it via this latest insult to those of us who have worn the uniform.
Meanwhile, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion have endorsed President Bush. I wonder why that is. Maybe most veterans are smarter than the MSM (and Senator Kerry) thinks. They know when they’re being patronized. Or maybe most just know BS artists when they see them.
UPDATE: This person points out correctly that those who endorsed the president in the Washington Times article linked above do not represent the VFW and the American Legion at present, but are ex-leaders. Thank you for your snark- and insult-free correction. /sarcasm
UPDATE:Yes, you may call me Sugar, Honeybun. Rusty advises us righty-bloggers to lay off the forgery meme. I’ll give it some thought as the unofficial investigation of it progresses.
