New York Times:
"CANDIDATE's WORDS ON VIETNAM SERVICE DIFFER FROM HISTORY"
By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ

At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut spoke . . .
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”
There is one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam . . .
Isn't that the greatest headline you've ever seen? They can't bring themselves to say it . . . Bush lied, Karl Rove lied, Rush Limbaugh's a liar - they can chant those phrases all day and all night and never have to make their point - but one of their own gets caught DEAD TO RIGHTS lying about military service and they run the greatest cover since ". . . that all depends on what the meaning of is, is . . ."
BUT! He's a Democrat! AND in a Blue State . . . this won't slow down his chances . . . if anything it'll be a resume enhancer . . .
Oh, by the way Mr. Blumenthal - while you're awaiting your (inevitable) nomination to Senate, we the editorial staff at STORMBRINGER have a little award for you HERE.
