A More Sensitive Draft

Though Mr. Bush has repeatedly and emphatically stated that he has no intention of bringing back the draft, Mr. Kerry has proposed a program of compulsory national service. (This is not a year for the irony-challenged.) This is a draft, but it has a softer label. Mr. Kerry has said that he intends to fight "a more sensitive war on terror." Presumably, he plans to fight it with "more sensitively" drafted conscripts.

Senator Kerry never said such a thing. It has been airbrushed out of his web site, so it never happened. Are you being difficult, comrade? Do you question the Great Leader? Shall we call for your doctors? You must learn that the past is what we say it is, and you must adjust your memory accordingly.
