No military service – You have No say.
NLS covered a Democratic rally in Fairfax yesterday. Ben gives us this Webb quote:
"I fought in Vietnam, and George Allen did not. Heck, even the French fought in Vietnam."
JR at Bearing Drift gives a couple reasons why Webb would make such a asinine statement. I am sure the Webb heads will defend such talk, but I have never heard any veteran from any war make a statement like that. I guess my buddy Cochran who signed up in 67 and stayed 20 years can call Webb a short timer. He wont though....He has class.
What is amazing to me is why Jim Webb embraces the anti war crowd that he hated after Vietnam. He is on record about the Vietnam era and that no inhaling-college student Bill Clinton and the senate speaking John Kerry, only now to soon share a stage with him to raise money. Maybe they will talk about Vietnam. Jim Webb has meta morphed into what he once hated. Jim Webb now practices reverse swift boating. No military service - You have No say. Hug Bill Clinton for us candidate Webb. Take his money and smile real big. While the kool aid drinkers applaud your statement, many of us question it's meaning.
