Some Conservatives like to get real angry with those who attack Bush because he “avoided” Vietnam through the National Guard. “The National Guard is a legitimate, and honorable service,” they insist. Granted. They are correct. (There is some question as to whether Bush fulfilled his required duty in the National Guard, but this post is not about that.)
Now there are Some Conservatives belittling Kerry’s service, arguing his 3 purple hearts were for minor injuries. Yes, seriously, they’re saying this. And these are Conservative Veterans saying this!
(Whether any Conservatives are included in both somes, and thus are complete and total hypocrites is irrelevant. The two somes should get together and decide which avenue they wish to pursue…It serves cross purposes to argue from both sides.)
