1. "In some critics' minds"
An excellent example of media spin by USa Today - they give legitimacy to the smear that Kerry was even referring to soldiers at all. This is the same MO the media had during the actual Swiftboating in 2004 - "Kerry's 'controversial' military record... some critics say he isn't being honest about his record..."

It's only "controversial" because the media decided to present a complete distortion as a valid point of view. Whores, all. </rant>

That said, I'm kind of glad he chose Fox News - they will be the biggest whores about his "joke" and it will give him a chance to come out swinging and put it to rest without the rest of the cowards in the party crying about how he's "hurting their chances."
