Operation Kerry Tantrum

Is John Kerry channelling Howard Dean?

John Kerry Challenges George W. Bush to Debate on War

Upon his arrival in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, John Kerry issued a statement and sent a letter to George W. Bush challenging him to a debate on the Vietnam era and the impact of their experiences on their approaches to presidential leadership. The challenge was issued in light of Bush campaign attacks on John Kerry's service in Vietnam, and his commitment to the defense of our nation.

Kerry: "John Kerry went to Vietnam. John Kerry served with honor. John Kerry knows what it means to pick up a weapon and take a bullet for his country."

Bush: "I respect that, Senator Kerry - and here's what I'm going to do. I am going to sit right here and listen quietly while you tell the American people about your timetable for sending American forces back to Southeast Asia to win this war!

Kerry: "Don't be absurd... Vietnam was over 30... er... I mean ...."

Bush: "Well I'm in if you are. Let's go. Lemme talk to Rummy. I'll put in a good word for you. What'ya need there, VietnamMan, a coupla divisions? Nimitz is ready and waiting off Hawaii...."

Good one! I've got a small army (and marine corps and air force and navy) of Vietnam Vets hanging out on my blog just wishing they could get their hands on Kerry and tear him apart.

Kerry's behavior since he got back from Vietnam has been execrable, starting with his rabid attacks on his fellow servicement and continuing with his completely undistinguished political career.

The North Vietnamese command (Gen Giap) thanks his organization for helping win the war for the North, and now the terrorists are cheering for Kerry to win.

He who lies down with dogs, gets up with fleas.
