As it is common news by now, I will only mention in passing that Richard Blumenthal has falsified his Vietnam record, alleging that he was there when he wasn’t. There is a current debate over whether the words “in” instead of “during” mean anything. Silly debate. It’s like saying something like this: “I recall serving as an engineering forensics expert at the time of the Hyatt Regency walkway collapse …” The average listener takes it that I was a forensics expert studying the engineering disaster. One can have plausible deniability based on the poor and unclear construction of the sentence … but that’s the point, isn’t it?
He misled the public with plausible deniability, just as he intended. Do the people of Connecticut really want him as a Senator? Haven’t they had enough politics?
