Ouch

Rich Miller at The Capitol Fax Blog:
Mark Kirk is an accomplished, decorated Naval veteran who blew that reputation out of the water with unfathomable exaggerations about his military record. He’s an intellectual graduate of the London School of Economics who lied about his experience with liberal nursery school students carrying guns.

These accusations against Mark Kirk are no longer about mere “embellishments” or “exaggerations.” This campaign is now about whether anything he says is true, and why.
Apparently, everyone' out to get Mark Kirk. If it's not the Iraqi Air Defense, it's toddler thugs.

NP: I'm wondering what you think of Miller characterizing Kirk's military career as accomplished. I have a problem with that as most military personnel must show up when and where ordered and do the job as ordered. Do we know that Kirk spend any time serving the Navy as such rather than working on ways to get the Navy to serve him? This isn't a rhetorical question. With your experience, I really want to know what you think.

I have more problems with Rich calling Kirk an 'intellectual'. Maybe he meant to say 'intelligent' which is better, but still bears scrutiny.
