The Real Kerry-Vietnam Question

Kerry has recently stated that he stands by his 1971 testimony that US forces committed systematic and horrific atrocities against the people of Veitnam. If so, how can one reconsile this with Kerry's insistance that he is proud of his service and that of his "Band of Brothers"?

If the Democratic Party Was A Jane Austen Heroine...

...the previous chapter would have told how she was persuaded by a sage counselor to end her attachment to Mr. Dean. Although Ms. Democrat subsequently became engaged to Mr. Kerry--a handsome, albeit dull, gentlemen of whom all of her acquaintances approved--and although Dean's unsuitability was now beyond question, she found the absence of her dear Howard's affections to be most vexing.

Unbeknownst to Ms. Democrat, however, it now appears that Kerry--not Dean--is the novel's scandalous male with an objectionable character. If this turns out to be true, and if Ms. Democrats accepts that she had been talked out of one bad marriage in exchange for one even worse, then I don't see how this can end happily.
