In Virginia, Jim Webb Refuses to be Swift-Boated

Jim Webb, who served in Vietnam, doesn't support the constitutional amendment to ban flag-burning. When Senator George Allen criticized Webb's position, Webb fired back:
“While Jim Webb and others of George Felix Allen Jr.’s generation were fighting for our freedoms and for our symbols of freedom in Vietnam, George Felix Allen Jr. was playing cowboy at a dude ranch in Nevada. People who live in glass dude ranches should not question the patriotism of real soldiers who fought and bled for this country on a real battlefield,” [Webb campaign spokeman] Jarding said.
