Carry on this discussion long enough, and voters will figure out who deserves respect and who doesn't. So, if the Republicans are smart, they'll change the subject and get back to friendly terrain - making the case that President Bush has acted heroically in leading the country and the world after Sept. 11, 2001.
That's a debate Republicans can win. The one they're engaged in at the moment will, sooner or later, blow up in their face.
Don't get me wrong. I'm still sick of hearing about Vietnam. As someone born in 1967, I consider it a blessing to not have to carry around that baggage. And I still think this is an absolutely insane way to go about picking a president, or even a vice president.
But that doesn't mean I'm anxious to rewrite history so that the valiant are painted as cowards and the cowardly as valiant.
And what we see already is that move my friends. Kos and the rest of the libs who may be sighing with relief are going to see just a continuation of crap -- and crap from vietnam. Kiowa's shitfield.
Last night on Harball, Rollins, an con strategist, was already trying to move to the debate to what Kerry did after the war and his voting on/for military since his service. The shifties already put a commercial out with his winter soldiers testimony. I sure hope the Kerry campaign has a few commercials outlying his votes on the military in his hip pocket, cause it's coming, and it's coming sooner rather than later. What disgusts me the most is the media will go along with that crap too.
BTW Kerry on the Daily Show -- excellent.
