Bob Dole jumps on the Pile

He just couldn't avoid an oportunity to sully his reputation. Bob Dole calls for Kerry to apologize for his his anti-war testimony from 33 years ago - Jackass.

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - Former Republican Sen. Bob Dole suggested Sunday that John Kerry apologize for past testimony before Congress about alleged atrocities during the Vietnam War and joined critics of the Democratic presidential candidate who say he received an early exit from combat for "superficial wounds." Dole also called on Kerry to release all the records of his service in Vietnam.

Separately, President Bush's re-election campaign continued to deny links to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, an anti-Kerry group running ads in three states, after the resignation of a campaign volunteer who appeared in the group's new ad.

With Kerry taking a break from campaigning, running mate John Edwards said Bush needs to tell the group to pull its ads, a step the White House and the Bush campaign refuse to take. The White House and Bush's campaign note that Kerry has benefited from more than $62 million worth of similar advertising against the president.

"This is the moment of truth for President Bush," Edwards said in North Carolina. "The American people have to hear directly that these ads need to come off the air." Kerry also fought back in another new ad.

Hey Bob, while you are down in Crawford with the prez, why don't you ask him to apologize for the smear campaign he is running through the front group SBVFT. Oh, and while you are at it see if you can get little boy blue to give us his guard records, or explain why he blew of his physical. And maybe you can ask him to apologize for getting all those soldiers killed for a foolish land grab.
