Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week

Maria Wells of Garnet Valley, PA thinks that Gen. Wesley Clark did not disparage GOP nominee John McCain a week or so ago on a Sunday pundit show:

Gen, Clark did not question John McCain’s patriotism. Gen. Clark praised John McCain’s service for several paragraphs before and several paragraphs after the sentence that was pulled out and paraded around.

I know Wes Clark. I’ve exchanged e-mails with him, talked to him on the phone and argued with him in person. He would never question anyone’s patriotism or denigrate anyone’s military service.

That anyone would think otherwise is a sad state of affairs caused by the Republicans who started the witch hunt, the media who perpetuated it, and the Democrats who refused to defend General Clark.

Um, baloney. Once again, you can say "you honor" someone's service all you want, but when in the next sentence you denigrate said service it makes your previous statement(s) worthless! Clark said of McCain:

Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.

It's not disparaging to say that a pilot was merely "riding" in his plane? And impugning that "getting shot down" makes one less of a candidate? Not only that, Clark praised John Kerry as the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004 for a lot less in his military background.

The lap dance Wes gave Kerry, and 4 years later he says this about McCain. How can anyone take that man seriously?
