After an admittedly quick review of your Spinsanity archives, I couldn't find any post where you similarly criticized John Kerry for injecting his Vietnam service into the 2004 campaign. (Surely you remember him saluting and saying "Reporting for duty" at the beginning of his acceptance speech, after the biopic laid out his service.) Could you help us out by linking to the post where you said that Kerry's Vietnam service "has nothing to do with being president"?

Rob, the difference is that this blog includes personal opinion, whereas Spinsanity did not. I do think that military service as a low-level officer may be a useful character reference, but it is not relevant experience for being president, which applies to both Kerry and McCain.
