08/25/2004: Thought for the Day:
"'He'll be tough, but he'll be tough with someone else's kid's blood,' said Harkin."
This does bear emphasizing, doesn't it? Chicken hawks Cheney and Bush fled from danger, period. They didn't not go to Vietnam because it was the last major criminal and immoral war, based on lies. They didn't not go because they were principled pacifists. They avoided the war because they were self-serving cowards, as they are today.
That needs to be said as often as possible. And loudly. Rudely. Offend someone with it. "The truth is terrible" said my favorite German philosopher. Indeed.
["favorite German philosopher": Prof. Leiter's professional philosophical specialty is Continental philosophy, and he did his dissertation, IIRC, on Friedrich Nietzsche. --LRC]
