I have always enjoyed the intellectual level of the members on this board. The amount of heavy thinking never fails to astound me. Was Kerry there also?

Wasn't it John Kerry that said, "Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! Now let's go and win one for the Gimper!"

Full auto 45, he said that when he was trying to fire up his fellow Tri Lambda geek frat brothers after they were humiliated by the right wing jocks on campus.

Another trivia question about D-Day. Does anybody know the average temperature on the day of days?

QUOTE (21 smoker @ Aug 26 2004, 08:14 AM)

That's absolutely right, 21 smoker, and then he (Kerry) decided to call it all off. unsure.gif So, they had to get Eisenhower to finish the job the next day, June 6, 1944! ohmy.gif It must have been Kerry's brilliant plan all along...to fool the Nazis! blink.gif You know...keep them guessing as to the exact time and place!!! laugh.gif Regards, Walter

Well at least Kerry hasn't claimed responsibility for inventing the intenet. Another intelectual giant by the name of Al Gore scored that coup before Kerry could. If Kerry didn't like the war or the Navy, he could have been a man taken off his uniform and then said what ever he wanted about Vietnam. To bad mouth the service while still wearing the uniform is low even for someone who slithered out from under a rock
