Republicans Mock War Hero's Service 

Apparently, a popular item at the RNC is a small band-aid with a purple heart, intended to mock John Kerry's war record. Via Atrios, via someone else....

Why isn't something like this in every news story concerning attacks on Kerry's service:
While John Kerry received those so-called minor wounds, George W. Bush used his family's connections to avoid service in Vietnam by landing a spot in the National Guard. Those attacking Kerry's war record have been unable to produce a single piece of documentary evidence to support their claims. Meanwhile, all documentary evidence has supported what Kerry has said about his Vietnam service and Bush has been unable to produce records that prove he fulfilled all of his obligations to the National Guard.
Well, a better written version of that paragraph should be in all such news stories.
