From Russ Vaughn, who needs a blog:
An Open Letter to Senator John McCain from a Vietnam Veteran
I begin this missive with an embrazo, as we call it here in Texas, for your service to our country, as a warrior, as a prisoner of war and as a United States Senator. You have served far better and endured far more in the service of America than most men will ever do. For that, this old sergeant salutes you.
That said, as a Vietnam ground combat veteran, I must take issue with you on the situation of John Kerry and the Swift Boat Veterans. You have labeled these men

McCain remains a victim of his long ordeal at the hands of the Vietnamese. Clearly his thinking and ability to absorb what is obvious to even the most ill informed among the public calls his judgement into question. For a man who fathered the campaign reforms we now see the fruits of his comments regarding the Swiftboat veterans only reinforce his image of a man who needs a long rest aboard one of Kerry’s luxury liners.

I have never liked John McCain or his politics. He much like his friend John Kerry seems to be nothing more than a rank opportunist and somewhat of a dullard. And after his bizarre love affair with his and Russ Feingold’s stupid, first-admendment crushing, campaign finance reform legislation I believe him to be a completely irredeemable pinhead. No wonder journalist and Hollywood celebrities like him so much, he’s one of their own.

… then let McCain sweep John F. Kerry with it.
