ship to shore

just saw chris matthews give anti-kerry swiftboater john o'neill "the business." as usual for his show, nothing was learned, but im glad to see matthews shortsighted bluster reserved for someone i dont like. even the dimwitted matthews understood that enlisting to fight trumps awol from the national guard. good thing matthews feels a double dose of shame as he himself avoided the war. he made this clear at the end of the show when he repeatedly made reference to the fact that kerry had done more for his country than either he or bush had. hopefully that bit of conventional wisdom will remain part of the larger narrative.
