But lets talk about something a lot more recent. Up until a few months ago, Webb appropriately opposed John Kerry and what he stood for, saying he wouldn't even TALK to Kerry.
But now Webb and Kerry are best buddies. Webb's been seen hugging Kerry, he's talking to him. Hey, he JOINED KERRY'S PARTY, and he's taken Kerry's money.
And now Kerry has stabbed him in the back with our servicemen and women, with an outrageous claim about education:
Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, they could get comfortable jobs - "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq," he said to a mixture of laughter and gasps.
Webb has tied his campaign and his character to that of John Kerry, and now he must answer for Kerry's claims. Does Webb believe his son is in Iraq because he is too stupid to get a real job? That's what Kerry is saying. Will Webb defend the honor of his son? Will Webb return the money he received from Kerry? Will Webb go back to not talking to the Senator from Massachusetts?
Actually, Webb will probably be silent on this, just as he has been silent on virtually EVERYTHING except defending his right to write in disgusting detail about offensive things simply because he saw them.
Or he'll make some lame statement about not "agreeing" with the statement, but he'll keep the money. Or he'll find some way to blame the Allen campaign, like he blamed them for what Webb wrote in 1979 about women, or about what Webb wrote in his own novels.
