Re: Have beaten this one to Parade Rest

In reply to: So much for the HERO.............

Del...We have collectively beaten the shuttlecock feathers off of this Kerry the "Feather Merchant" vs. Kerry the "Hero" thing. As they say in The Ranks, we have beaten this one to "PARADE REST."

The "Blue Kool-Aide" drinkers won't let facts get in the way of their Hero Worshipping. Simple barracks common sense and mess decks logic tells trooper and sailor alike, that Kerry was gamesmen as a 20-Something LT(JG) in the Mekong Delta, and is a gamesman as a 60-Something Presidential Candidate looking to move to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Pat Brady, who has CMOH certified credibility, summaried it very clearly in his piece you posted previously. There is little more to offer on Kerry, one way or the other.

Well, the Republican Convention lies before us, "Let the Games Begin Anew."

Keep the good stuff coming. It adds much to the Speakeasy mix, and gives us respite from "SP2 glitches" and "predictions of Internet meltdown."

Hi Angeline,

It wasn't any of Novak's postulating that I was interested in,
rather the words of someone who "was there" those
many years ago with Kerry.

It seems a lot of those "old guys" have problems with
their memories from the variations of the stories about
the same incident(s).

I guess we're left to work our way thru the smoke and
see where the fire leads us.

had another bit about Kerry and his claims.


On the site, the Massachusetts senator is described as the skipper of Navy boat No. 94 during several actions in late January 1969.

However, Edward Peck, who was the skipper of the 94 before Kerry took over, said combat reports posted by the campaign for January 1969 involve action when he was the skipper, not Kerry. Peck, who was seriously wounded in fighting that took place on Jan. 29, 1969, said he believes Kerry campaign aides made a mistake in claiming Kerry as skipper of the 94 at that time.

If his aides post it he is obviously willing to claim it apparently like attempting to take credit for Bob Kerrey's assignments in the Senate. Kerry wants to be president but can't even ensure his subordinates check information before crediting Kerry with it.

Kerry's campaign "claimed on its website Monday, 'John Kerry served on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 8 years and is the former Vice Chairman of the Committee.' Fact is John Kerry has never ? ever! ? served as vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence," the Republican National Committee noted today.

"Turns out, there is a senator named Bob Kerrey from Nebraska who was vice chairman for a while. Kerry?s website later pulled the plug on the page, which might be construed as a metaphor for the whole campaign."

The RNC suggested: "Instead of posting false qualifications on the campaign website, maybe it would be wiser for John Kerry and the Gang That Couldn?t Spin Straight to follow the advice of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who called on the Kerry campaign Monday to end the controversy by simply releasing his committee attendance records. What are the odds?"

Posting actual records would absolutely destroy his chances even among MOST Kerry die hards.

Someone else has questions about Kerry.
