The shoe will inevitably be on the other foot one day.
Has it crossed your mind that perhaps an individual who supports the swift boating of anyone is not ambassadorial material? I mean, you're putting forth this notion of a level playing field, and I don't see it. I don't know the man, but his participation in that group should weigh heavily against him, IMHO.

What color is the sky in your world? I have never goose-stepped to anything. Nor do I consider myself to be a "right-wing[er]" or a "nut job." But thanks for fighting back with more name-calling, as usual.

Now I expect you'll encourage me to go pleasure myself in my rectum again, this time in tune to Wagner.

Are you certain that, were John Kerry elected president, he would not have nominated an ambassador who participated in the "swift boating" of George Bush's National Guard career?

So you are suggesting that Bush was honorable in his "military" service? I took your suggestion from the other thread about people that never served still able to make military decisions as an excuse for our Chickenhawk-in-Chief....

By the way, you'd better distinguish yourself from the herd or it will be plainly obvious that you ARE goose-stepping. None of your "opinions" here seem original yet.

Dan Rather?

I am not a seer or a swami or a soothsayer, therefore I cannot comment on events that have not occurred. I am aware of nothing that came out of the Kerry camp that quite compares to swift-boating or brown babyisms, but as far as I can see, you seem to be reaching pretty far just to excuse bad behavior.

You condemn Pelosi for her recent actions in the ME, but fall short of condemning GW for engaging in actions that are at least as unethical. I condemn both, and both for the same reason. Carpe datum -- it's more than just a motto.
