… will certain people change the untouchability of the “volunteered for Vietnam” defense they make for Kerry? Well, what do you think?

The pudding:

One of the criticisms leveled at the President is that he sought guard service to keep him from serving in Vietnam.

Morrisey says, “not so.”

“The Air Force, in their ultimate wisdom, assembled a group of 102’s and took them to Southeast Asia. Bush volunteered to go. But he needed to have 500 [flight] hours, but he only had just over 300 hours so he wasn’t eligible to go,” Morrisey recalls.

Morrisey, a retired Colonel, swore Bush into the Guard and served with him.
