"As far as we know, Senator Kerry got three Purple Hearts for risking his life in Vietnam and President Bush got a dental examination in Alabama," Pelosi said.

This little quote tagged onto the Cheney-is-a-chickenhawk article is disgusting. I don't even know what else to say about it. It makes my blood boil to see such spin.

1 "President Bush got a dental examination in Alabama" Perhaps Kerry OTOH let his teeth rot. War hero, maybe. Dental role model, maybe not. Knowing Fox's biases, the quote was probably included to create the very effect that it had on you (and me).

2 I looked and looked, but nowhere in the Constitution does it say that one has to have been to Vietnam to be President. Nowhere does it say one has to have been in a war to lead the country during one. Did I maybe miss that particular amendment? Or is it in the one section that only Liberals can see, in the same place as the "right" to abortion??

3 That isn't a contrail Kerry's sporting, it's smoke from the fire on his tail.

4 CavalierX, Remember, the Constitution is a "living" document. Apparently, we missed out on the Vietnam Amendment. That one must've materialized after the golden age of Clinton ended. Always keep in mind that these sound bites are designed for voters who don't think things through. They don't have to make sense. Such is the nature of mass memetic warfare.

5 The Dems try to confuse the issues here. Everybody recognizes Kerry as a "war hero", earning the unprecedented 5 awards in 4 months of service. The issue was what did he do immediately after his "heroism", such as accusing American soldiers as baby killers, mass murderers, and rapists.

6 "Everybody recognizes Kerry as a 'war hero' " Not "everybody." Some deny that. What he actually did in Vietnam has been disputed. There is, however, no doubt about what he did after he came back.
