Great column. So true, but you must realize in liberal speak being against Vietnam is the same in their twisted brains as being for North Vietnamese troops fighting the US. Also when a liberal icon (vs. Dean a ????able political entity and a SOUTHERNER with an ACCENT who has used the word ni--er) uses homophobic or racial terms they are TOO IMPORTANT to cast aside and every excuse in the book will be trotted out. See with the left its perception NOT REALITY that matters. So there is a logic to their madness. Its called power and influence in contemporary society.
