I have second thoughts about my previous post.
Maybe the Bush interpretation of what Kerry said wasn't a calculated ploy.
On Kos, DarkSyd reminds us of the service record of Bush and his apologists.
Mickeleh's Take: Maybe when Bush thought Kerry really meant that if students aren't good in school, they'll be shipped off to war, it was simply the way Bush and his team felt about service in Viet Nam: You only go to war if you're too stupid to get out of it. No wonder Colin Powell didn't fit in with that gang.
