Wow, you guys are really reaching. Maybe you need to wonder why so many people who served with Kerry don't like him and are, as you imply, lying about him. Do you think it's ALL rep/dem split? I don't.
For example, you should hear what people who served with Kerry ON
the Gridley say. His Executive Officer thought Kerry was a good Navy man, but like most veterans of the time, thinks that:
"his anti-war activities while our troops were still fighting, dying and being tortured in filthy Vietnam prisons were despicable."
Despicable. Not a very glowing after-action report on Kerry by his "band of brothers".
