Welcome to thirty years ago!

The blogosphere (and the mainstream media, too) is a-buzzin' about the latest web video from the RNC, featuring a white flag of surrender waving in front of prominent Democrats as they make their doom-and-gloom pronouncements about Iraq. I swear to God that this, from the Washington Times, is not parody:

[T]he ad features a white flag waving in front of Sen. John Kerry as he seems to accuse U.S. forces of terrorism during an interview with newsman Bob Schieffer of CBS.

"There is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night terrorizing kids and children, you know, women," the Massachusetts Democrat said.

Kerry spokesman David Wade expressed outrage that Republicans would attack a decorated Vietnam combat veteran.

"The only shots these Republican hacks have ever fired are from their computers," he said. "So they might not know that the flag that flew over John Kerry's boat in Vietnam was red, white and blue.

"Only in Dick Cheney's party would a vice president who skipped Vietnam on five deferments allow an attack on a veteran with three Purple Hearts," Mr. Wade added. "They want a debate about patriotism? Bring it on."

Seriously, Mr. Wade, is that all you got? Because your guy served in Vietnam, on a boat no less, he's insulated from criticism? You don't care to defend your employer's statements, or explain them, or refute the claim that he's calling American soldiers terrorists? Just "how dare they question a veteran?" That's it?

Well then Oliver North should tell Kerry to go fuck himself.

Oh wait. Republican veterans need not apply.
