I find it all sort of sad and pointless. Yes, Kerry served. He demonstrated love of country and commitment and all that when he did so. But I think his explanations of what patriotism is are, and have almost always been, incredibly muddled and at times embarrassingly sanctimonious and bitter. And his lack of graciousness toward McCain — given McCain’s support for Kerry in 2004 — is just a small example of why Kerry is such a human toothache. What an awful, awful president John Kerry would have been.
