Democratic poster boy Max Cleland, a "war hero" whose claim to fame is multiple amputations caused by a grenade blast friendly fire incident involving some drunk buddies is calling on Bush to specifically denounce Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Of course, no mention is made of other 527s like MoveOn.org except this: "Rassmann said the ads by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth should not be lumped together with other 527 groups running political ads because it is simply untruthful." Wow, and the ads from MoveOn.org that call Bush a Nazi are completely truthful. Please!
Cleland rolled up to Bush's ranch and allegedly tried to deliver a letter calling for unilateral disarmament but was met by Republican veterans. I love this line from Jerry Patterson, "the Texas state land commissioner and a U.S. Marine who served in 1972-73":
"You can't have it both ways. You can't build your convention and much of your campaign around your service in Vietnam, and then try to say that only those veterans who agree with you have a right to speak up. There is no double standard for our right to free speech. We all earned it."
The only good veteran is one that agrees with Kerry! Ah, the liberal Democrats, party of open-mindedness and freedom of speech! Hey Max, John, et al: How about skipping the political theater and try addressing the questions!
