George Examines the Rassmann Incident

Since John Kerry has run for the Presidency on his Viet Nam record, the subject is open to examination. George presents an excellent and thought-provoking analysis about why the official record isn't one to be trusted, as there is indication that Kerry wrote it himself.

Go read the post. In addition to links that take us on a virtual tour of a swift boat, George masterfully deconstructs the events of March 13, 1969, and puts them back together, resulting in some glaring holes in the account. He also posits theories on the real cause of the reported damage to the boat, herself, and explains why Rasmussen's perceptions may have been colored that day.

And he doesn't come right out and say it, but he also points out a major difference between a real hero, and a vainglorious attention hound: the real hero always plays down his deeds with quiet modesty.

For the safety of the country, Kerry should drop out of the race and let Edwards run in his place. He has polarized the country to the breaking point.
