The Purple Owie

I recently received this forwarded email and thought some of you all might enjoy it.

A new medal named in honor of John Kerry is called the "Purple Owie." It is worn directly over the wound in question. After use, it is rolled up and thrown over the nearest fence.......

"Who has 3 purple hearts in 4 months but never spent a day in the hospital?"


Seriously though, I think that any military service is to be commended, but what he's done with it since, protesting the war and turning on his fellow swift boat veterans, is to be condemned. He has lied through his teeth about what happened there and has tried to garner support for his campaign riding only on his service in the military, which is highly questionable, if anything. I appreciate that he went, but what he's done since and apparently what he did there is a little more than shady. That's just my official, off-the-cuff commentary following this post. I didn't want my liberal friends to think I'm down on his actual service.
