John McCain today came out on both sides of the issue of John Kerry's vietnam service and activism after he returned home. McCain stated that it was valid to criticize Kerry for his statements made after the war, but that his service record should be off limits.

Sen. John McCain said Monday it was fair game to criticize Democrat John Kerry’s anti-war protests three decades ago, firing an opening salvo as Republicans at their national convention sought to portray President Bush as a strong wartime leader.

McCain, R-Ariz., told CBS’s “The Early Show” that television ads run against Kerry accusing the Democrat of lying about his military service in Vietnam were “dishonest and dishonorable.” But, he added, “What John Kerry did after the war is very legitimate political discussion.” Kerry was a leader of Vietnam veterans who opposed the war.

Yet another example of Vietnam veterans upset with Kerry for his strident protest of the war after returning home.

Bumping this. It got lost in the fray for a few days and has finally landed where it belongs.

With all respects to McCain (I hope he runs in 2008) but Kerry made his war record a campaign issue. Now that he is taking heat, he is crying foul. Damm, barn door open horse out, better close it anyway.....
