LOS ANGELES — Veterans of George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard unit charged today that the president had misrepresented his military service during the Vietnam War. The veterans allege that during a period when the future president was supposed to be serving in the National Guard, he was actually fighting in Vietnam.
“For more than 30 years we have remained silent,” said the head of the group, which calls itself Stiff Drink Veterans for Vermouth. But, he added, “we want to be on Larry King just as much as those Swift boat guys.”
I guess this is supposed to be an amusing parody of the Swiftboat Veterans. Does Kinsley find it amusing to suggest that the Swiftboat Vets are comparable to a bunch of drunks? Is this what he really thinks of the Swiftvets, or is that his opinions of all veterans?
Kinsley was a passionate, but fair liberal in his days on Crossfire, but he seems to have sunk into the same fever swamps that have claimed so much of the Democrat Party.
