11/18/2005: Gem o'the Day, Part II [Bonus Twofer Edition]:
I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done.
--Rep. John Murtha (D-PA, and a Marine veteran), on noted chickenhawk draft dodger and pathological liar Dick Cheney
John Murtha's courageous call for American troops to leave Iraq is the right policy at the right time. The Bush chickenhawks already are impugning Murtha's patriotism, but when you have a purple heart and a silver star compared to a President with a spotty attendance record with the National Guard and a Vice President with five deferments, that dog don't hunt.
--Larry C. Johnson
