Good grief!

You might recall how badly Zell Miller has been dog-cussed by the Dems for his speech. Sure, I can see how they might feel betrayed. But all the crap about "fascism" et al - what's going on?

IMO it's because he dared associate John Kerry with his votes. Kerry certainly hasn't shown any interest in doing so. Either he isn't proud of his record or he knows damned well that the rest of us (outside that asylum called Massachusetts) won't like it.

So what do the Dems try next? If you've read any blogs over the last several days you know about CBS and the apparently forged documents suggesting misconduct by George W. Bush 31 years ago. IMO even if the documents were authentic they wouldn't have amounted to a hill of beans, but....

Now what? Oh yeah, apparently Bush's campaign literature made an errant claim about his military service.

No, not in the current campaign. Back In 1978.

Oh yeah, it's damning too: "Flyers distributed to Texas voters during Bush's failed Congressional race say 'he served in the U.S. Air Force and the Texas Air National Guard.' But according to Air Force officials, Air National Guardsmen are not counted as members of the active-duty Air Force."

Now there's a major distinction for you. You'd think that if the Air Force had tried to activate him, he could have escaped by saying "No way, I joined the Reserves!"

I'm certainly in favor of accuracy, and if this turns out to be true it's regrettable.

But if the Dems think this kind of chickenshit will harm George W. Bush in the minds of sentient beings, especially 26 years after the fact, desperation simply isn't adequate to describe their position.
