02/19/2004 Entry: "Kerry Watching"

"John Kerry has been twice a hero. First, as a soldier in Vietnam, he displayed extraordinary physical courage, winning the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts. Once, injured and under heavy fire, he turned back his river boat to rescue a wounded comrade, who now credits Kerry with saving his life. Second, displaying civil courage at home equal to his physical courage in battle, he embarked on a campaign of protest against the war in which he had fought, becoming a spokesperson for Vietnam Veterans Against the War. In 1971, the VVAW camped out on the Mall in Washington. President Nixon's Justice Department then sought and obtained a court injunction forbidding the groups from using the Mall. Immediately and spontaneously, the veterans, as if re-enacting the American Revolution, assembled in caucuses by state to deliberate and vote--and so created, at the symbolic center of the Republic, a kind of instant, ideal mini-republic of their own. They decided to defy the injunction and appeal their case to the Supreme Court, which reversed the lower court decision and permitted the protest to continue."
Letter From Ground Zero, by Jonathan Schell, The Nation, [from the March 1, 2004 issue]

Just Kerry Watching.

I suppose John Kerry has called 'em like he's seen 'em all his life. A lucky/unlucky man, like most of us.

Yeah, I know the rest of this Nation article goes negative on Kerry. I suppose I should say something thoughtful about how Kerry voted the best he could on the information he had, but it won't make a difference to The Nation and their readers. I've no idea what the people at The Nation want, I'm not sure it's in the dimension anyway, so I'm just going to keep on ignoring it.

All I know it that Kerry (or Edwards for that matter) will be a better President than bush. If The Nation (and The Progressive for that matter) decided to get hip to that fact, they might get my subscription money again. Until then, fuck 'em.
