Four years ago, the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth were getting set to air their ads against Democratic Presidential nominee John F. Kerry. His Senate colleague, John McCain, also a Vietnam veteran, condemned the ads: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5612836/. Well, four years later McCain is himself a Presidential nominee, and how does Mr. Kerry repay McCain? By trashing him on Bob Schieffer's "Face the Nation": http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/FTN_070608.pdf.
I never had much respect for John Kerry, and the little I had is gone after this bitter and mean-spirited attack. Kerry doesn't have to agree with McCain. In fact, he doesn't even have to support him. But, to attack him this way is deplorable.
