Another Kerry "Shaggy Dog" Story

A new four-legged angle — actually a dog named “VC” — has suddenly materialized surrounding Sen. John Kerry’s swift boat service in Vietnam.

In a 2004 presidential candidate questionnaire for Humane USA, Mr. Kerry was asked whether any pets have had an impact on his life.

“I have always had pets in my life, and there are a few that I remember very fondly,” Mr. Kerry replied. “When I was serving on a Swift Boat in Vietnam, my crewmates and I had a dog we called VC.”

“One day as our Swift Boat was heading up a river, a mine exploded hard under our boat,” he continued. “After picking ourselves up, we discovered VC was MIA (missing in action). Several minutes of frantic search followed, after which we thought we’d lost him. We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing a dog.”

Said Mr. Kerry: “It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and landed, confused but unhurt, on the deck of another boat in our patrol.”

Problem is, once again if do a little checking, you find out this story is about as credible as most of Jean Fraud's. Read the whole post at LGF. The dog apparently belonged to Harvey, the CIA spook who gave Kerry his magic hat for smuggling him into Cambodia on Christmas Eve. Oh, what the heck ... Let's give this man an Oval Office.

Thank you for the link. recriprocated, of course.
We all have to keep an eye on all politicians, whatever their affilliation to maintain an awareness of what is really going on. Kerry is just the most inept at keeping his obsfucations hidden. I truly believe that he would be a danger to the well-being of our nation should he attain the Oval office.
