Want to help out "the under privileged"? Learn about Valour-IT, then choose a team in whose name to donate. (All proceeds go to the same worthy cause, and to individual service members as the need arises, regardless of which team you pick.)
Much more military-type feedback on this topic (including what I believe was the first ever blog post on this) at MilBlogs.
I posted a little bitty copy of your picture at Bill's Bites >> Jean Fraud Kerry -- Still Lovin' Our Troops and captioned it "Click to view full size."
Get your gear for the next Kerry Lied rally here. "Proud Veteran-American. Silent No More!" We haven't gone away, Johnny, and we haven't forgotten. We're still here, locked and loaded, waiting for you to crawl back out from under that rock again. Bring it on, Johnny.
Proud Viet Nam Veteran
So please, pick TEAM NAVY, and help erase the stain of shame that was LTJG Kerry.
Please. We need all the help we can get!Posted by SMASH at October 31, 2006 11:38 PM

What did Jim Nabors do to get associated with that piece of slime?Posted by Rob Crawford at November 1, 2006 12:18 AM
Apologies to Jim.

I don't know how Carl Rove got JFK (wannabe) to say such stupid things one week before an election.
As one who has never served, forgive me, but I have the greatest admiration for those who do.
Thank you to those of you who are serving or have served our country.
In the 1990s Clinton's HHS Secretary, Donna Shalala, commented publicly that the United States "didn't send the best and brightest to Vietnam". She was roundly criticized by Republicans and (I think)several Democrats, including Clinton, who quickly made his displeasure with her publicly known (undoubtedly to stop the political damage rather than from any personal offense he took at her statement). Now, only a decade later, I've heard no Democrat publicly rebuke Kerry's comment, unless I missed it. Perhaps some will, but if not it's sad commentary of where that party has gone.Posted by Paul Schlick at November 1, 2006 12:48 AM
You do realize that Kerry was talking about Bush, right?
I know you people with KDS (Kerry Derangement Syndrome) like to assume the worst, but what's implausible about his statement that he was talking about Bush? Nothing. Because he was insulting Bush, not the troops, and Bush for one knows this very well.Posted by M.A. at November 1, 2006 12:51 AM
Nice way to illustrate the previous comment, M.A.
For the record, here's what I said at Milblogs:
At first I intended to point out that Kerry's remarks would no more impact an election for House or Senate in another State than the Foley story would. But having seen a few Democratic strategists try to spin control this thing (that damn Johnson!) I'm not so sure.The quote was recorded. It's all over the internet (you can watch it here.). I've seen it on Fox and CNN - just while flipping through channels. It wasn't a joke. It wasn't about Bush. It was Kerry in an unguarded moment, speaking his mind.

Note to Democrats: This is not salvageable. Please stop. John Kerry is not running for anything this year. He will win in a landslide when next the Massachusetts voters go to the polls. Stop. Now. Repeat: Stop. Now.
By the way, M.A., which team did you donate through?Posted by Greyhawk at November 1, 2006 01:12 AM
Put some prosthetic metal teeth in Kerry's mouth, and he'd look like he could be related to Jaws....Posted by Bomb-a-rama at November 1, 2006 01:18 AM
Good ol' Jim Nabors. A graduate of the University of Alabama, a great singer, rich and famous without a wifely leg up.
And as Gomer Pyle, Jim acted naive and goofy for the entertainment of television viewers. What's Kerry's excuse?Posted by Dusty at November 1, 2006 01:25 AM

I always thought that Kerry looked like James Buchanan, unquestionably one of the worst Presidents ever. Also, and probably less relevant is that Buchanan was most likely the first gay President, not that there's anything wrong with that. But I digress.
Considering the cosmetic surgery that Kerry's had, you'd think that he'd try to alter his appearance more, so that he didn't look like one of our worst Presidents....Posted by IllTemperedCur at November 1, 2006 01:43 AM
MA, JFK (AKA Just For Kerry) STARTED his political career by slandering Vietnam vets.Posted by JAWolf at November 1, 2006 01:48 AM
I just sent a note to the Senator through the webform at http://kerry.senate.gov/v3/contact/email.cfm and no, I did not use a real street address.
I am incensed about your remarks today concerning my and my fellow enlisted soldiers' intelligence. I also read your follow-up explanation that it was a failed joke - I hope you also do not believe the rest of the country as stupid as me, because I have a really hard time believing it was a joke after being able to view the speech (yes, in context) online.
I have a BA from Columbia University. Maybe you have heard of it. I would be willing any day of the week to put my French language skills up agaist yours. I also attended a certain private high school in Exeter, NH. Maybe you have heard of that one? I enlisted in the US Army after 9/11. Am I stupid?
I went to basic combat training with a guy who has a BS in Aeronautical Engineering. He is, literally, a rocket scientist. He also enlisted soldier in the US Army after 9/11. Is he stupid?
I currently work with another guy who has a Masters in Philosophy and was very close to finishing his dissertation for his PhD. He, by the way, is very liberal politically, but I would be willing to bet that in an exercise of debate, with him taking the other side, he would talk circles around you, or any of your 99 colleagues in Washington. He enlisted in the US Army after 9/11 out of patriotism. Is he stupid?
College degrees in my company in the enlisted ranks outnumber those in the officers'. We obviously did our homework and worked hard during our years in school. Maybe you are out of touch and do not realize just how much things have changed since you were in the military (that is if, in fact, you had an idea about it then). I think you may get too many of your ideas from movies and television, because it is painfully obvious that you have not ever taken the time to really speak with an enlisted member of the US military.

THANKS TO ALL BRANCHES OF SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN AND ALSO TO THEIR FAMILIES. YOU MAY NOT GET RICH IN THIS WORLD BUT I BELIEVE GOD WILL HAVE A VERY SPECIAL PLACE IN HEAVEN FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES.

LET ALL AMERICANS WORK TOGETHER FOR PEACE STARTING WITH OUR OWN FAMILIES, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS. WOULDN'T IT BE NICE FOR ALL PEOPLE TO LEND A HELPING HAND WHEREVER WE SEE A NEED ALL OVER THE WORLD. GOD BLESS THE USA AND ALL COUNTRIES AND GIVE THE LEADERS A SENSE OF DUTY TO ALL CITIZENS.
