Political Dynamite?

Daily Kos has this interesting thread, in which former TX Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes talks about his role in helping GWB (and to be fair, “a lot of other rich people”) duck out of Vietnam, and get into the National Guard.

“I got a young man named George W. Bush in the National Guard when I was Lieutenant Governor of Texas, and I’m not necessarily proud of that.”

It will be interesting to see how this is spun. If the swift boat veterans‘ propaganda can stick like shit to a shoe, we’ll see how much of a stink this one will cause.
