When Bob Dole Had Class

I used to respect Colin Powell but he sold out. For some reason he decided to do dishonorable things for George Bush and has never taken responsibility for his actions. I am still waiting to see what John McCain decides to do after first campaigning with Bush and then not speaking up forcefully enough to stop the smearing of war heroes and Vietnam veterans. But I have now lost all respect for Bob Dole. Read Noel Koch's column in today's WP titled "When Bob Dole Said No." Here is the close:

"Time in-country, how often a man was wounded, how much blood he shed when he was wounded -- it is hurtful that those who served in Vietnam are being split in so vile a fashion, and that the wounds of that war are reopened at the instigation of people who avoided serving at all. It is hurtful that a man of Bob Dole's stature should lend himself to the effort to dishonor a fellow American veteran in the service of politics at its cheapest.

There was a time when he would have refused. I know. I was there. "
