Digby gets the details right
Digby notes a little-known fact:
For assholes like the Fox Allstars who claim that Kerry only spent four months in Vietnam and that makes him a pussy, it should be known that while it is true he only spent four months getting shot at and saving lives and winning medals for bravery in swift boats -- he had previously done a full tour onboard the USS Gridley stationed in the Gulf of Tonkin. Swift boat duty was his second tour.
So often in this election year, I've noticed bloggers getting their facts straight -- while the "journalists" who actually get PAID for their reporting just can't be bothered with trivial details. Such is the sorry state of the Fourth Estate.
