It was fun discussing Kerry's misadventures in Vietnam. There still seems to be a treasure trove of material yet to discuss with regard to the International Man of Mystery. If the media want to sabotage him for Hillary's sake, they should have no trouble locating some interesting stories that the mainstream media showed no interest in pursuing, like:
The Vietnamese woman whom Kerry and his crew assisted in the delivery of a breech birth baby. The story appears in the introduction to the Boston Globe book on Kerry, but curiously, given the extraordinary drama and heroism of young Lieutenant (jg) Kerry, the story never appears in Tour of Duty.
Kerry's Rosie Ruiz run in the Boston Marathon. As broken by our buddy John Ruberry (an authentic marathoner) Kerry claimed to have run in the Boston Marathon, apparently unaware that records are kept of all runners.
Kerry's attendance at a VVAW meeting where the assassination of US Senators was proposed and discussed heatedly. While we're on the subject of meetings, what about the two meetings Kerry and other VVAW leaders had with the North Vietnamese in Paris?
Kerry's improbable stories. It's not hard to find several of these. What about VC the flying dog
? Kerry claimed that when his boat was hit by a mine, the dog was catapulted through the air, only to miraculously land on the deck of a following boat. Or my personal favorite (since it seems obviously ripped off from a sit-com), the time that Kerry claimed to have been taking his car through a car wash
and suddenly water started pouring into the vehicle from everywhere and he worried about drowning. (As I commented at the time, it was an experience that both senators from Massachusetts had in common).
