Terry McAuliffe: Kerry In Cambodia -- Twice

mcauliffe.jpgIn a brief visit to Bloggers Corner, DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe told the bloggers that John Kerry was in Cambodia -- twice -- and took fire, while taking the opportunity to get in a dig at George Bush:

Q: Does it bother you that the Democrats have nominated a candidate that told a fable about spending Christmas in Cambodia on the floor of the United States Senate?

A: John Kerry went to Cambodia twice. He was over in Viet Nam and at one point, as you know, he took some CIA operatives into Cambodia, and he did a lot more than George Bush ever did for his country. George Bush never got to Viet Nam.

Q: Mr. McAuliffe, do you have any proof --

A: You said only one question. You're chewing up their time [gesturing to camera crew].

Power Line has the video. Go check it out. And note that of all the people who have appeared at Bloggers Corner, McAuliffe is the only one who refused a follow-up question.

For yesterday's official Democratic version of Christmas in Cambodia, check out Hugh Hewitt's post from yesterday's show.
