    I'd bet he gets a lot of that.

    Is this saying he only pulled over to take a pic of him shaking the soldiers hands? Why does this bug me so much? RRrrr!

    Wish he'd offer to shake my hand.

    I'd tell him where he could stick his.

    I think it bothered me, just because it obviously put the soldiers under pressure to offer some kind of awkward respect for Kerry while they and Kerry know for a fact their own position is in fact at odds with his demonstrative disrespect for their past and current actions.

    Kerry tries too hard to make himself a hero to our young soldiers while the memory and tradition of his his activities ensure his everlasting shame among them.

    He forced them into a difficult position, at odds with their own peers and core beliefs. That's what's wrong with the picture!
