John Kerry Uses Max Cleland



John Kerry is a pathetic candidate. He is unable to stand up for himself and answer the questions posed about his service. He has yet to release his military records, he has yet to account for how it is possible that he could have "misremembered" being in Cambodia on Christmas of 1968. His campaign has ceded the fact that his first purple heart was caused by a "unintentional, self-inflicted wound". He has avoided the press for the last two weeks, restricting his appearances to campaign rallies and late night comedy shows where has been unable to answer the questions posed by a friendly comedic host. He has attacked the Swift Boat Veterans, filed lawsuits, and sought protection by the president.

But this is a new low. He has talked Max Cleland, former Senator from Georgia who lost three limbs in an accident in Vietnam, into making himself a spectacle before the world in a stunt meant to take the edge off the Swift Boat Veterans campaign against him. He sent Cleland to President Bush's Crawford, Texas ranch to deliver a letter demanding that the Swift Boat Veterans cease their actions. This may be an all time low in political campaign history. John Kerry has done everything in his power to discredit the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. The only thing he has not done is answer their questions.

Update:

The Bush Campaign has responded with a letter.
