The attempt to attack John Kerry over his Purple Heart is the latest example of the right's shameless attempt to destroy anyone in its way. Douglas Brinkley has a good rebuttal to the charges that Kerry didn't deserve the medal. In the most recent news story that the Kerry campaign is posting Kerry's Navy records online, it states that "[c]onservatives, talk radio hosts and some newspaper editorials have questioned the seriousness of his injuries and whether the Massachusetts senator was deserving of the three Purple Hearts, which resulted in his reassignment out of Vietnam." I haven't had the chance to listen to Limbaugh lately but in case El Rushbo was part of this chorus, I have one question: Was Kerry's shrapnel wound bigger than the cyst on Limbaugh's ass?
UPDATE: Limbaugh on Kerry's Purple Hearts. What a dick.
