The swiftboating of McCain continues.

The hypocrisy of the Democratic party is truely and utterly astonishing. It's as if the Democrats think that they have this country so totally screwed that they don't even have to care what you think anymore.

During the 2004 presidential race, the Democratic party was openly proclaiming to the world that only a combat veteran of the United States military was qualified to be president, that clearly Senator John Kerry was qualified to be president on the strength of his war-time military service alone, and that rich, frat boy George W. Bush couldn't even be bothered with his cushy Air National Guard job without going AWOL. Democrats openly mocked and taunted Republicans for nominating a presidential candidate with such a weak military record as George W. Bush for the single most important job in America.

Now it's 2008 and its the Republican nominee who has the impressive military service record while the Democratic nominee didn't serve a day in the military. Now the Democrats are telling us that we shouldn't talk about military service because it's not important for a presidential candidate:
"I think what we really need to work on over the next four, five months, and it goes back to the speech that Sen. Obama gave [Monday] and this little fight that I've been watching and that is, we need to make sure that we take politics out of service," Webb said. "People don't serve their country for political issues."

He continued: "And John McCain's my long-time friend, if that is one area that I would ask him to calm down on, it`s that, don't be standing up and uttering your political views and implying that all the people in the military support them because they don't, any more than when the Democrats have political issues during the Vietnam War. Let's get the politics out of the military, take care of our military people, or have our political arguments in other areas."
