John F'n Kerry- hunter and hunter's friend...

This article claims that John F'n Kerry has television ads proclaiming him to be a hunter. Not to put too fine a point on it but the photo I see is of the senator at a trap range, not hunting. I also read that JFK claimed to love deer hunting by "crawling on his belly through the woods with his shotgun..." Crawling on his belly? Oh please...

Come on- if JFK ever hunted deer by crawling on his belly, he had a camera operator there to film it for his archives. Where's the film?
The campaign is running television commercials that show Kerry hunting. It is also distributing campaign literature touting Kerry’s support of the Second Amendment.

This public-relations effort has infuriated the National Rifle Association (NRA).

“He’s not a hunter; he’s just playing one on TV,” said Chris Cox, the NRA’s chief lobbyist. “The guy has voted consistently against gun owners. It’s politics at its worst.”
And he took time out of his busy campaign schedule to vote for the Assault Weapons Ban extension few weeks back.
