T. Boone Pickens: Lying, Cowardly Scumbag

Filed under: News, Politics and Religion — Jason Peppers @ 12:36 am

Professional parasite T. Boone Pickens has offered a million dollars to anyone who can prove the Shit Boaters told so much as a single lie about John Kerry. It would be harder to find an instance of the Shitties telling the truth about Kerry, since one can’t make it past the front cover of Unfit For Command before catching its authors in a lie. Unfit For A Canary Cage is a more fitting title for that demented little tome.

Since Pickens isn’t very bright in issuing this challenge, he was clearly dumbstruck when John Kerry personally picked up the gauntlet, suggesting that Pickens make out his check to wounded veterans. Since Pickens has the morals of Bourbon Street pimp and the backbone of a slug covered in salt, he’s now moving the goalposts:

[from Pickens’ press release]

In order to disprove the accuracy of the Swift Boat ads, I will ultimately need you to provide the following:

1) The journal you maintained during your service in Vietnam.
2) Your military record, specifically your service records for the years 1971-1978, and copies of all movies and tapes made during your service.

Watch those goalposts fly! In point of fact, one only needs to see the Bronze Star citations issued to Kerry and Shit Boater Larry Thurlow. Thurlow claimed that Kerry didn’t deserve his Bronze Star because the swift boats hadn’t been fired upon while Kerry was pulling Special Forces Lt. James Rassman from the river (Rassman had been knocked overboard when an explosion rocked the boat). Thurlow’s own Bronze Star citation mentions:

Washington Post

But Thurlow’s military records, portions of which were released yesterday to The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act, contain several references to “enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire” directed at “all units” of the five-boat flotilla. Thurlow won his own Bronze Star that day, and the citation praises him for providing assistance to a damaged Swift boat “despite enemy bullets flying about him.”

As one of five Swift boat skippers who led the raid up the Bay Hap River, Thurlow was a direct participant in the disputed events. He is also a leading member of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a public advocacy group of Vietnam veterans dismayed by Kerry’s subsequent antiwar activities, which has aired a controversial television advertisement attacking his war record

Pickens could demand a Top Ten list of Shit Boat lies and it would take maybe fifteen minutes to list them point by point. In fact, the good folks at swiftvets.eriposte.com have documented a number of outright lies told by the Shitties over this one incident! It’s not exactly surprising to see Pickens, slimy character that he is, already trying to worm his way out of paying up.

In other words, T. Boone Pickens is a lying, yellowbellied scumbag. No wonder he gave $3 million to the Shit Boaters.
