- A political leader who reveals his contempt for the people who serve in the military by claiming that he was "joking" to college students by saying that they better do their homework or else they will get stuck in Iraq;
- A political leader who sends the people who serve in the military to Iraq on the grounds that "we sacrifice for the liberty of strangers." [George W. Bush, January 28, 2003, State of the Union Address]
John Kerry may himself be a "botched joke," but he does not command a single American solider. Only the commander-in-chief has that power, and our current one has exercised his by sacrificing American lives in order to grant the people of a Middle-Eastern backwater the right to vote themselves into an Iranian-style theocracy.
I'm sorry ladies and gentleman, but it is the conservatives who have proven themselves to be the greater threat.
