Posted by Tanstaafl :: Letter to John Kerry

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t build your convention and much of your campaign around your service in Vietnam, and then try to say that only those veterans who agree with you have a right to speak up. There is no double standard for our right to free speech. We all earned it.

Read the whole letter. I think that the longer Kerry tries to push Bush into condemning what these guys say, the worse it's going to get for Kerry. It keeps them in the media and gives them a multiplier effect for the little money they have. It makes Kerry look like he can't defend himself and needs his opponent to help him. And finally, as long as he has wishy-washy responses to their actual claims (many of which are likely false or exaggerated), people are slowly start to believe that where there's smoke there's fire, even if that's unfair.
