A judge of character

Random Jottings notes an article in the San Francisco Examiner. It’s about the problems in the Kerry campaign and the SwiftVets and worth reading.

But what struck me was this quote:

Kerry himself bestowed immense credibility on his “Band of Brothers” when he used a picture of some of them in his campaign ad titled “Lifetime.”

Essentially, Kerry made Vietnam, and these men, the centerpiece of his campaign. Of course, that was when he thought they’d support his candidacy. No matter that he’d never bothered to ask their permission to use them to promote his political career.

Could Kerry really be that out of touch with reality? That he thought men who’ve depised him for decades would rally to him because they had once served together? I suppose it’s no wonder than that Kerry thinks Jacque Chirac is his friend.
