It seems the good senator is trolling for hard luck stories from our troops in Iraq. I'm sure it's to help them, not embarrass the administration. Heaven forbid. If he does for the Iraq vets what he did for the Vietnam vets, well...never mind.
Thing is, after 20-odd useless years as a senator, I just can't explain John Kerry's sudden interest in politics these past couple of months.
Addendum: Just ran across plenty more on this at Polipundit.
