Is Kerry actually so obtuse, or is he just pretending? Even if partisanship no longer stops at our shores, honest criticism isn't the same as false charges, partisan misrepresentation and intentionally underming the war effort. John Kerry is patriotic like Jane Fonda is patriotic. And yes, the issue is patriotism. One of them, anyway.
