Aw shucks, Boogyman left out the part of Kerry's military record about meeting with the enemy in Paris while still a serving naval officer.

Get over it!

Methinks we've picked up a new member a trifle dissatisfied with Bush. Oh, while there are many such beings on this site, one seems to be especially loquacious.

Just though ya'll needed a specific thread instead of clogging up other topics with this "drivel" all the time.

I've provided an appropriate thread for people who argue this very thing in other topics that get locked for drifting to these "pointless" matters.
And I resent your name-calling. (troll).

Wait a minute, I get it now. Boogeyman is in reality Dan Blather, still upset that his propaganda-in-the-guise-of-news story was found out to be the lie that it was. Poor Dan...uh, I mean, Boogeyman, still trying to recover your lost credibility??


(P.S. Here's a hint - you never had any to begin with):D
