Raines on Kerry

Just a quick note on Howell Raines' big Guardian piece on Kerry's lackluster campaign. He writes:

As America's first war-hero candidate since John F Kennedy, [Kerry] ought to be leading the national discussion on what went wrong in Iraq...
Wait a second...."First war hero candidate..."? What about George H.W. Bush, who was the youngest naval pilot in World War II and got shot down over the Pacific Ocean? What about Bob Dole, who got shot in the back by Nazi machine gunners while trying to help another soldier?

I guess he meant "Democratic," not "American," but come on.

You know what Howell Raines needs? An editor.
