Just one of the reasons I hate Jean Fraud Kerry, and part of why it's so personal

I'm copying a whole post from Greyhawk. His site is worth reading every day. Do it.

Greetings, Friends, Neighbors, Morons...

"Thank you. I am proud to be a lifetime member of this organization and grateful for your continued deep commitment to veterans and to the defense and security of our nation. For more than 100 years now, you have had many distinguished veterans come before you – some Republican, some Democrat, some presidents. But as a fellow veteran, I can proudly say that there is one title that is more important than all, and that is patriot. You have all earned that title and I am proud to stand with you today."

-- John Kerry, Speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, 105th Annual Convention, Cincinnati, OH, 17 Aug 2004

"And so a New Soldier has returned to America, to a nation torn apart by the killing we were asked to do. But, unlike veterans of other wars and some of this one, the New Soldier does not accept the old myths.

We will not quickly join those who march on Veterans' Day waving small flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the "greater glory of the United States." We will not accept the rhetoric. We will not readily join the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars-in fact, we will find it hard to join anything at all and when we do, we will demand relevancy such as other organizations have recently been unable to provide. We will not take solace from the creation of monuments or the naming of parks after a select few of the thousands of dead Americans and Vietnamese. We will not uphold traditions which decorously memorialize that which was base and grim.

It is from these things the New Soldier is asking America to turn. We are asking America to turn from false glory, hollow victory, fabricated foreign threats, fear hich threatens us as a nation, shallow pride which feeds off fear, and mostly from the promises which have proven so deceiving these past ten years.

-- John Kerry, The New Soldier, 1971

Think about the man who wants us to trust him to lead our country. Think about the implications of making a man like that Commander in Chief of our armed forces. Think!

Is it personal? Like many, my first marriage took mortal wounds at home while I was in Vietnam. Why should a healthy young woman be true to a lowly G.I. while he's away doing the horrible things Hanoi John and his slimy ilk told everyone we were all doing? Yeah, it's personal. Even if Jean Kerry wasn't such a lying low-life indecisive henpecked derrière-kissing bastard son of a bitch today, I'd still have my memories. Every vote for Kerry will be a slap in the face to every patriotic American who ever put on a uniform and went off to war. Think about that. Please, think about that.
