Is Hugh Overdoing It?

The admirable Hugh Hewitt has been carrying on about Senator Nuance's rich fantasy life about his service in Vietnam, and Cambodia (Not!).

Is this a reasonable use of energy or a diversion?

Personally, I don't have much interest in Swift Boats and the details of the Vietnam War. However, Senator Nuance has made his four or five months of Vietnam service the basis of his campaign ("Reporting for Duty!'). If the cornerstone is a papier-mache facade, there is not much left of the campaign. Nuance's choice.

So Hugh's just following the bread crumbs that Nuance scattered in the forest. Fair game, so sez I.
