Bush and the National Guard, One More Time

Good God, these campaign controversies keep appearing like bad pennies. I suppose in the wake of the Swift Boat ads and the four-day attack ad against Kerry in NYC last week, the rationale is that the only way to contest this election is by wading into the muck. I'm aware of the ends-justify-the-means argument, and I agree that if this is what it takes to get a president who is serious about pursuing universal healthcare, I'll get behind it. That doesn't mean I have to like it though, and I'll never be able to take part in such tawdriness with a smile on my face. See the other blogs for gleeful parsing of Bush's records and such, I'll refrain from that here.
