Defending Kerry, senator blasts 'chickenhawks':

In a speech Monday at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, Cheney attacked Kerry's votes in the Senate to cut weapons programs, his opposition to the 1991 Persian Gulf War and recent comments that the war on terror should not be thought of primarily as a military operation.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Tuesday that Cheney criticized Kerry on policy issues and said that 'no one is questioning his military service.'

Even those criticizing whatever happened with the medals 35 years ago aren't criticizing his military record or questioning his heroism. They're criticizing and questioning subsequent actions, positions, and policies. Does this mean that we can't question anything that someone who served in Vietnam does afterward?

That being said. I think the Republicans should stop even mentioning the medals fiasco or Kerry's anti-war protests. It distracts from their more reasonable criticisms of how he voted in the Senate.
