Don't Buy That Swanson Is 'Wondering'; This Is Baiting. But as for His Question: Will Democrats Support a Veteran With Some Serious Issues on His Record? Better a Service-Avoiding War-Champion Whose Planning Team (Mostly) Neither Served nor Went to War?

RECEIVED Thu., May 27, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I was still wondering about the Democrats apparently fixin' to nominate someone who admitted to war crimes, serious offenses, including using anti-aircraft weapons on civilians, firing on civilians in free-fire zones, executing wounded enemy soldiers, and burning villages. Is this the best you have to offer? Spin that, Louis; see if you can avoid answering the question again.
