What Is It With Kerry's Pets and Boats?

Hugh Hewitt posts an odd sidenote to the Kerry-in-Vietnam (or was it Cambodia) story: the tale of the pup, specifically a dog named VC that supposedly got blown out of the swift boat when the boat hit a mine. The dog, Kerry told the Humane Society, flew into another boat and survived. Naturally, this story called to mind Alexandra Kerry's convention story of Licorice, the unlucky hamster.

For more on Kerry and the hapless hamster, see Will Saletan's satire of the Swifties. And the Kerry Hamster Dance is here here. Both links are courtesy of a Google search for "kerry hamster."
