      issues. That's the strange thing. According to the VAIW he was rated a D+:

      Senator George Allen D+

      Congressional/Senate Ratings on Military Issues

      I don't see any problem for Webb in this attempt to smear him. At first I thought he had written a Scooter-style porn novel, which would have been disastrous.

      But once I heard his books were based on his war experience, I didn't see any problem. All it did was to empasize Webb's military service and Allen's chickenhawk status.  It's also a chance to point out Allen's terrible record in Congress when it comes to really supporting the troops.

      I think this is all good for Webb. Not sure it needs any framing.
