American VoicesPolitics ISSUE 37•17 May 9, 2001

Last week, former senator Bob Kerrey admitted that a raid he led in the Vietnam War resulted in the deaths of at least 13 unarmed women and children. What do you think?

  • “We all have skeletons in our closets. Of course, in Kerrey's case, it's a whole pile of Vietnamese child skeletons, but still.”

  • “Come on. If that had really happened, he'd have an ear necklace like McCain.”

  • “There are many good reasons to kill: money, revenge, that satisfying 'thwump' sound... but not to advance one's political career.”

    Ike Brophy –

  • “What I want to know is, when he realized what had happened, did he throw back his head and yell, 'Nooooo!' in pain and rage?”

  • “I suppose next you're going to tell me that Senator Calley was involved in this sort of thing, too.”
