Saw this (kumawar.com) on CNN this morning - it's an online video game (coming soon) in which you can be Lt. John Kerry and be in command of a Swift Boat
From the website description -
The Swift Boats - lightly armored, fast-moving, and armed to the teeth - move further up river but come, once again, under RPG fire. Instead of fleeing, Lieutenant (j.g.) John Kerry takes a hard 90-degree turn directly in the path of the enemy and charges toward shore, guns blazing. Hitting the bank, he and his radio man leap off their boat, tearing through the jungle after the last enemy.

This is my problem with hate crimes legislation. It's a bullshit political solution to make nice suburban liberals feel like we're doing something about racism and homophobia without actually doing shit that affects anyone's lives except dead people.
