Bob Dole's Hypocrisy, Available On His Web Site
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
Below you will find a link to a current page on Bob Dole's official web site. Displayed on this page is a recent Wall Street Journal editorial written by Dole that completely contradicts his recent attack on Senator Kerry.
Printed below is the email I sent Senator Dole on his web site:

Dear Senator Dole:
Although I have never been a supporter of the Republican party and have not held many GOP leaders in very high esteem, I always have had a personal respect for you.
Like you, I was raised in Kansas and attended the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Being one of your Kansas constituents, I have known about (and have had great admiration for) your military service to our country as long as I can remember.
That is why I am so disappointed with your recent comments about Senator Kerry and your participation in the deplorable smear campaign run by your party's supporters.
As I am writing this email, the following statements are posted in your name on this very web site (in the "On the Issues" section), and I agree with them very much:
I am sorry that you have chosen to completely contradict your above statements with your recent attack on Senator Kerry. I hope you will rethink your position on this issue and choose to honor your fellow decorated veterans rather than questioning the validity of their medals (and thus dismissing their service to their country).
