That line will probably be the only good thing to come out of this thread, I'm afraid.

Where is the "Pundits and Preachers" section on the Dem side?

It's fine if they want to highlight the disparity between the service records between both sides, but be fair about it.

Old topic already discussed. I posted the actual records of those in Congress. More Republicans served. Do a search.

1. Pat Buchanan is not a Republican.

2. You conveniently failed to mention the military records of a number of Republican members of the House of Representatives.

3. Your comments about Bill Clinton are totally incomplete; therefore, they are laughable.

You can keep repeating this crap all you want but it's not suddenly going to become true.

Until <b>Thor</b>'s post, I was confident that I'd have the best post in the thread. Now I'm not so sure ...

I agree with him on this issue. Babies are great slow-cooked in a crockpot. Very tender.

No, Kerry never called the soldiers "Baby killers". That's a lie being perpetuated by a number of partisan websites.

As for the original post, if you selectively choose politicians, you can probably make an email claiming that Democrats didn't serve in Vietnam, and Republicans served and received many medals.

It's much easier if you kust examine the Vietnam-era records of supporters of the Iraq war, isn't it? It isn't an issue of political party, it's one of character.
