  Who Do You Respect?
There's lot's of "interesting" stuff about the convention, not the least of which was Kerry's sweating his way through that horrendous speech. But this incident from a campaign stop today takes the cake, I think.

Before a campaign stop in Scranton, Kerry's "bus convoy pulled over at a Wendy's fast food restaurant for a photo opportunity lunch that provided an awkward moment.

Spotting a group of US Marines, Kerry, who has made his Vietnam War service a cornerstone of his campaign, went over to chat. The Marines, who all turned out to be staunch Bush reporters, were not impressed.

"He imposed on us and I disagree with him coming over here shaking our hands," one of them told reporters afterwards. "I'm 100 percent against" Kerry, he said. "We support our commander-in-chief 100 percent."

Man, I love the Marines! OORAH!

He's lucky he didn't get the ol' One-Fingered salute for voting to strand our fighting men in the desert without the money for water and supplies. But I know Marines have more class than that, even if Kerry doesn't. Still would have been hilarious.
