Former deputy assistant secretary of the Navy, decorated former swift boat skipper, and combat veteran drops some science in an op-ed attacking President Bush's nomination of Sam Fox to be ambassador to Belgium: "And as a military man, it doesn't matter much who is being attacked — John McCain, Max Cleland, John Kerry, or Jack Murtha — I just don't believe that assaults on the military records of veterans belong in our politics."
As a left-leaning independent, I am constantly shocked and amazed at the Right's ability to get away with shit like the Swiftboat ads and the truly shameless attack on Max Cleland. I think it's the clearest and most egregious example of how low the Right is willing to sink for political gains. As the son and grandson (and great-grandson, etc., etc.) of war veterans, this shit makes my blood boil.
