George Neumayr does a nice job of spelling out the cognitive dissonance of Kerry’s claim that his service in Vietnam somehow qualifies him to be Commander-in-Chief. He really shouldn’t be allowed to get away with the two unreconcilable positions that he both “served honorably” and “committed atrocities.” If he served honorable and bravely, why did he spend so much time and energy after the war disparaging that service? If he committed atrocities, why is he so proud of it now?p>It’s Kerry’s decision to make the “war crimes” claims that screws up his story. It’s completely plausible for someone to go to war, serve honorably, and then work to bring his fellow soldiers home. It is not plausible at all for someone to go to war, serve honorably while committing war crimes, return home and accuse your fellow soldiers of committing war crimes, and then parade your medals and fellow soldiers around like its the best thing you’ve ever done. It’s completely schizophrenic! br> — Tracy M. Fitzgibbon br> Sedro-Woolley, Washington /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
