Kudos to Scott Johnson of Powerline, for posting this "Jon Carry" update from Iraq, courtesy of WDAY (Fargo, North Dakota) talk show host Scott Hennen. As you may have heard, the Massachusetts Senator recently paid a visit to our troops in the Middle East, less than two months after his famous "stuck in Iraq comments." The response he received was less-than-enthusiastic. A friend of Hennen's, currently serving in Iraq, sent this report to the the talk show host:
"This is a true story..... Sen. Kerry found himself all alone while he was over here. He cancelled his press conference because no one came, he worked out alonein the gym w/o any soldiers even going up to say hi or ask for anautograph (I was one of those who was in the gym at the same time), and he found himself eating breakfast with only a couple of folks who areobviously not troops. What is amazing is Bill O'Reilly came to visit with us and the troops at the CSH the same day and the line for autographs extended through the palace and people waited for two hours to shake his hand. You decide who is more respected and loved by us servicemen and women!"
Again I say..."GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!"
A photograph of Senator Kerry, virtually alone in the dining hall, can be found at both Powerline and Scott Hennen's website. Absolutely priceless.
