8. Among other things,
Kerry served 4 months or so of his second tour in Vietnam. Repeat that, slowly, in words of one syllable to your aunt: Sec-ond tour. How many tours did Bush serve over there? And Cheney? And Rumsfeld?

It's Bush who has cut benefits to veterans, cut their combat pay, made it harder for them to get medical care. It's thanks to Bush that they're over there without body armor.

And what's this crap she's saying about Wilson? Is WILSON supposed to have claimed there were WMD's in Iraq? Was Bush trying to avoid war at all costs and only invaded Iraq because they invaded us? Ask her just what it is you missed that week.

I would say, do just a little fact checking on your own (the internet is of course a lovely place for it) and the next time you have a conversation with your aunt, just push and push and push her on the first thing she brings up.

Much of what she claims about Kerry is actually true of Bush and what he's done.

Or, you can chose to dismiss her as an idiot. It's all up to you. Good luck.
