In the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum (formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum") in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), a photograph of John Kerry hangs in a room dedicated to the anti-war activists who helped the Vietnamese Communists win the Vietnam War. The photograph shows then-Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Kerry being greeted by the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, Comrade Do Muoi.
No wonder Rolling Thunder endorsed Bush.
This post would qualify as snarky, if only Kerry weren't constantly exploiting Vietnam -- with regard both to his service there and in comparison to Iraq -- in his campaign. I don't think it is helping him any more.
