When I say I don't care what John Kerry did 35 years ago, I mean it. The Bush National Guard nonsense doesn't matter to me either. I wasn't born then. Neither of them were holding elective office then. And politicians are notorious for fudging a date or too, or being less than 100% on their recollections. Big deal. I never had scoliosis when I was a kid, either. I just made it up in 8th grade because I was slow and hated to run. Sue me.
I don't care, and my hunch is that even if all of the arguments against Kerry were refuted, conservatives would still stick by Bush, no matter what. Fine. Meanwhile, I'll be showing those undecided voters a few reasons why Bush has been not just a bad President, but a lousy Republican.
