In case you missed it, here’s Boone Pickens’ response to Kerry yesterday:
“Dear Senator Kerry:
“So glad to hear from you regarding the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth political ad campaign, and an offer I made public at an American Spectator dinner in Washington, D.C. last week. I am intrigued by your letter, and am certainly open to your challenge.
“My concern at the Spectator Dinner was, and continues to be, that you and other political figures were and are maligning the Swift Boat Veterans, and I want to prevent this important part of American history from being unfairly portrayed.”
[snicker] This is rich, isn’t it?
“In order to disprove the accuracy of the Swift Boat ads, I will ultimately need you to provide the following:
1) The journal you maintained during your service in Vietnam.
2) Your military record, specifically your service records for the years
1971-1978 (sic), and copies of all movies and tapes made during your
“When you have done so, if you can then prove anything in the ads was materially untrue, I will gladly award $1 million. As you know, I have been a long and proud supporter of the American military and veterans’ causes. I now challenge you to make this commitment: If you cannot prove anything in the Swift Boat ads to be untrue, that you will make a $1 million gift to the charity I am choosing — the Medal of Honor Foundation.”
LOL. I wonder how he expects to receive “copies of your service records for the years 1971-1978” (sic) since Kerry was in the Navy from 1966-1970?
That’s the kind of games these fools and their backers play, folks. They’re so clueless, they don’t even know the years Kerry served on active duty in the Navy.
And I’m sure that’s precisely the dodge ol’ “Booney” will use to say Kerry didn’t meet his “demands” when he reneges on the deal.
Go away, Mr. Pickens. And take your “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth” (sic) with you.
