And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

…And how would you like your memory done this evening, John? Would you like it ….seared?

“I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia,” …”I remember what it was like to be shot at by the Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there – the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared – seared in me.” – John F Kerry, Senate Floor, 1986

John Kerry loves to talk about Vietnam. He loves it so much that he has repeated his stories and anecdotes multiple times in each of the thirty-some odd years (at least triple that for election years) since they supposedy happened. He also keeps at least one CIA man’s hat stuffed in his briefcase.

The one thing John hates the most is anyone who might not have been there in the boat with him asking him about his facts. He also loves to play the “you can’t question my patriotism card” if the heat gets a little too hot there in the Kerry kitchen. Well John – You brought it up!

Kerry is now back-tracking after all of these years to make sure we all understand that he went into Cambodia a month later. Based on the other information coming out about Kerry’s claims, we’ll have to see whether these memories are really “seared-seared” or just repeated until believed.

Bob Dole got an interesting call from Mr Kerry. Maybe John Kerry will take his own advice and call off the AWOL conspiracy freaks?
