Chappa-Chutzpah of the day

"You have a Jim Rassmann, who was a Special Forces
officer that was blown off John Kerry's small boat ... When
John Kerry turned that boat back and hauled Jim Rassmann out of the
water, risking his own life, what he has said: We leave no one behind.
He didn't leave Jim Rassmann behind. He won't leave veterans behind."
- Senator Edward "Splash" Kennedy on CNN.
Easily explained. While Mary Jo served, she wasn't a veteran.
Bein' a war hero ain't no dagnabbed guarantee of continued patriotism after ambition kicks in. See: Kerry '71 or Benedict Arnold.
let's not forget about all the servicemembers he stabbed in the back when he came back and joined the protestors.
And i like Kennedy - except when I don't. ")
I hate to be his handlers when they wake up Kennedy tomorrow morning from his drunken stupor. When one of the three handlers tells Kennedy what he said today, there will hell to pay by that messenger of the bad news.
Ted Kennedy: Reasons #1 through #5,000 why I'm ashamed to be a Massachusetts resident and taxpayer.
As somebody once said, "Ted Kennedy looks like a Florida manatee dressed up in a suit." If for no other reason, Kerry's people won't let him campaign here in Florida where folks could get confused, especially those that live and (sometimes try to) vote in West Palm Beach.
