It's extremely sad, but the Swift Boat controversy continues to boil. I ask again, would someone please explain to me why what happened 30 years ago is relevant today? The latest turn in this sorry saga has triple-amputee Kerry backer Max Cleland rolling around Bush's ranch trying in vain to deliver a letter requesting a condemnation of the ads in question. Apparently, the Kerry campaign would like America to believe that Bush hates the handicapped. Why is Kerry continuing to drag this out? These types of stunts only maintain the public's focus on this non-issue. Why is he falling into this trap? The refutation should be really simple: Kerry served. Bush and Cheney didn't. End of issue.

As frustrating as it is to watch this senseless back and forth about events that happened 30 years ago while there are real concerns in today's world that we should be discussing, at least the whole thing has yielded a few good spoofs.
