Richard Blumenthal, how can you forget the dead bodies?
The New York Times, which some say leans to the right, has just busted Attorney General Richard Blumenthal for lying about serving in Vietnam. Blumenthal, a Democrat, is running for Senate to take over Senator Chris Dodd’s old seat. Blumenthal was actually doing well in the polls due to his popularity. One of his Republican challengers is Multimillionaire Linda McMahon. McMahon is the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment or WWE. McMahon once had a falling out with her husband that left her in a “coma like” state. Don’t worry though because it wasn’t real. That’s why they changed WWF World Wrestling Federation to WWE World Wrestling Entertainment….hence the word “Entertainment.” Who knew Conservatives were in charge of the WWE? I guess if Don "Magic" Juan can be a Bishop then it’s alright. Blumenthal was actually leading McMahon 64% to 23%. Actually, he was beating all the Republican candidates like they stole something. But just like a true Democrat he snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
McMahon took a page out of her employees’ book and decided to get down and dirty. Ted DiBiase, the “Million Dollar Man,” would have been proud of how McMahon informed The New York Times of Blumenthal’s selective memory. I guess McMahon was trying to handicap the race by pointing out Blumenthal’s error in judgment. Does it make sense that a man with 5 military deferments can’t remember fighting in Vietnam? He can’t use the fact that he inhaled too much Agent Orange because he was never on the battlefield.
The problem with Blumenthal is that he lied and he told the truth. Confusing right? One video has him talking about being in the war. Another video has him talking about not being in the war. Really dude? This is a slap in the face to all our former and current servicemen and women. I think it’s safe for us to call him a liar. A person knows when they’ve been in a war or not. It’s not something that you casually forget. You can forget where you left your socks but you can’t forget the dead bodies you’ve seen.
