Kerry is disturbing period. It's a sad comment on our society that a man like this who is all smoke and mirrors got as far as being a presidential candidate. His nauseating misrepresentation of himself as a Viet Nam veteran* turned self-righteous war protester is really ironic in light of this event.


*How accurate this is I don't know, but in a petition circulated before the last election by some veterans who served with him I read he spent three weeks in Nam on a gun boat, almost got his fellow soldiers killed numerous times, then recommended himself for a Purple Heart for a small shrapnel scratch on his arm. My husband, who did 2 tours in Korea and one in Nam says it agrees with his memories of scuttlebutt at the time.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
