Kerry, What, a Man?

Bush’s lack of military record is shameful compared to Kerry’s and Kerry would be stupid not to make hay out of it.

I have to think that a swaggering Texan like Bush has a DEEP SENSE OF SHAME that when he had a chance to do his duty, he pussied out. Bush requested NOT to be sent to Vietnam. Compare that to Kerry, who did one tour in Vietnam away from the action, then requested a second tour so he could see action.

When Bush was doing jumping jacks, getting hammered every night, and lounging around the pool, John Kerry was serving in Vietnam. A self-styled swaggering “tough guy” like George Bush will never be able to live down his eternal shame, that when he had a chance to actually fight for his country, he wimped out.
