CT Democratic Senate Candidate Lied About Vietnam Service

A very big hat tip to Hot Air, who turned us on to this astounding story. Even more astounding is that the New York Times broke the story. Blumenthal is looking to succeed the disgraced Democratic Senator Chris Dodd-- and now Blumenthal is looking like an uncertainty in November.

But apparently he's been claiming that he had served in Vietnam in the Marine Corps, but in fact did not even go there.

The New Haven Register on July 20, 2006, described him as “a veteran of the Vietnam War,” and on April 6, 2007, said that the attorney general had “served in the Marines in Vietnam.” On May 26, 2009, The Connecticut Post, a Bridgeport newspaper that is the state’s third-largest daily, described Mr. Blumenthal as “a Vietnam veteran.” The Shelton Weekly reported on May 23, 2008, that Mr. Blumenthal “was met with applause when he spoke about his experience as a Marine sergeant in Vietnam.”


Wow. That's pretty damning. This may unfortunately lead to nutcase Ned Lamont taking the Connecticut primary nod after he was defeated by Senator Joe Lieberman in the 2006 race. Or it could lead to a Republican bump. Too early to say right now.

let me show you the end results of this particular *ONE-DIMENSIONAL SCIENTIFIC MODE*
of thinking that is called *CRITICAL THINKING*, which is completely divorced from
any human objectives...

this style has been perfected by dawkins, pz, randi and the other *NEW ATHEISTS*
