Lurch's Memorial Day Outburst:
My kingdom, small though it may be, for a picture of the outburst described below.
Newsmax is the only news outlet reporting on Lurch's memorial day outburst at the Vietnam War Memorial. If ever there were doubts about the media's slant toward Lurch's campaign may the here and now be put to rest.
Lurch was confronted by a fellow Vet at the Wall on Monday. Ted Sampley, Green Beret with two tours in Vietnam, had some not so nice things to say about Lurch. Here are some of them:
Senator, I am Ted Sampley, the head of Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry, and I am here to escort you away from the Wall because you do not belong here.
Like what he has to say or not, he's a Vet, and can thus say whatever he wants about Lurch and his service during the Vietnam War. (By the way, did you know that Lurch served in Vietnam?)
It was when Sampley revealed a HANOI John T-Shirt and stated loudly
Kerry does not belong at the Wall because he betrayed the brave soldiers who fought in Vietnam.
that Lurch lost it. In full view of a group of school children, Lurch brazenly flashed "The Bird" to Sampley and yelled "Sampley is a Felon!"
You know, it is during times of pressure and stress that the true character of men and women is revealed. It brings out the best and worst in people.
Now, ask yourself, is this the kind of reaction you would expect from a man desiring to lead the free world in time of war and conflict?
