I feel ill

The Pentagon is investigating Kerry’s war record. That the investigation is happening now, in the midst of a presidential campaign in which Kerry is the Democratic challenger, rather than at any other time in the past 30 years is a pretty good indication that this is an abuse of power that would have made Nixon blush.

Meanwhile, we can’t very well investigate Bush’s war record, because he doesn’t have one, at least not prior to doing an bungling job as commander in chief durring the “war on terror.” We can’t investigate his military record either, because so much of it has conveniently gone missing, with key documents missing or “accidentally” destroyed.
