PoliAnnotation Quote of the Hour
Retired four-star Air Force General Tony McPeak, speaking of JF Kerry in Exeter, New Hampshire, on a cell-phone to the Exter News-Letter. He had called them unsolicited. Here he is, addressing allegations that Kerry is unfit to be commander in chief:
"I resent them saying that about a man who served his country first in combat in Vietnam, and then served it again in the antiwar movement.We'll all remember the tremendous sacrifices made by Lieutenant Kerry in protesting the war, labeling his fellow soldiers monsters, and consorting with the Viet Cong.
General McPeak, do your country proud and shut your mouth. Quit embarrassing yourself. Please.
Actually, John Kerry was NOT representing America in the course of his anti-war activities. Contrary to the General's assertions, Kerry and his fellow-travelers were knowingly serving the government of North Viet Nam. The details are here (and these documents didn't come from Mary Mapes): http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41106
The good General may have flown his jet just a leeetle too high before donning his oxygen mask.
