Law Review Veterans for Truth doesn't have the same ring, does it. But Obama is a fabulist too. It'll come.

"So why did he not mention his famous 1968 Christmas incursion into Cambodia back then?"

Something to do with the magic hat, I bet.

Will Kerry's acid trip ever wear off? And how many more Obama "things" will we need to endure in this election cycle?

Danube of Thought

Someone (Clarice?) correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we established back in 2004 that the first time Kerry ever said he'd gone into Cambodia was in October, 1979 when he was asked to write a review of Apocalypse Now:

"On more than one occasion, I like Martin Sheen in 'Apocalypse Now,' took my patrol boat into Cambodia. In fact I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."

In "To Set the Record Straight," Kerry's colleague LTJG Larry Thurlow is quoted as follows (concerning the Bay Hap River incident): "He takes every situation and story he was a party to or heard about, and eventually it becomes his story."

I think that's right D(ot). There's a psychological disorder called Mythomania and our boy JFK has it in spades. (Along with Hillary). In his case it was obvious from boyhood. Perhaps he came by it honestly because it appears at least his father didn't care much for him. (I suspect his mother didn't either if her last words to him really were, as he reported,"integrity, integrity,integrity.")

You bet he might!
Thanks for that memory, that made me laugh pretty darn hard.

Since you made me laugh, let me make you laugh, since I know how you feel about the Yankees, please don't ban me.
The NY Post had a list of the top 50 jokes of last year, it was a lame list except for maybe two or three.
Here's one of the good ones.
Alex Rodriguez never gets clutch hits in October, yet his fans insist on comparing him to Babe Ruth. So A-Rod tries to get as close as he can to Ruth-type achievements. Before the playoffs last year, A-Rod went to a hospital and promised a dying kid that he'd ground out to second Base for him. And I was at the game, people, it's true - A-Rod pointed to second Base.

"So why did he not mention his famous 1968 Christmas incursion into Cambodia back then?"

Easy, he hadn't made it up yet. It took a movie to plant that idea.

Gideon7

He never did release his DD-214, did he?

Danube of Thought

Actually, he did release it (or at least he released "a" DD-214). That was the document that indicated he had been awarded a "Silver Star with Combat 'V'," which has never happened and is not authorized by law.

HILLARYous. Kerry couldn't influence Mass. for Obama, but now he's got the magic touch in Penn?

M. Simon

His own allies shot him. Yep. That was the Kerry '04 campaign.

And why is Obama having Kerry front for him? He needs the advice of an experienced loser. No amateurs for him.
