    I wouldn't vote for her, but I sure as hell admire her. This won't help us hold the seat.

    There is nothing funnier than a Republican complaining about people "politicizing" military service. Anyone remember when Republicans were lockstep in their "with us or against us" mentality? And if you were against Iraq you were against the troops and whatever vague mission they had that week?
    I saw that interview with Ashley Banfield. This guy is such a dickwad. He wouldn't even allow her to ask questions, just rambled on in a loud obnoxious tone. Every time she tried to talk, he kept shouting, "Ashley... Ashley...Ashley...Ashley", screaming over her until he could start his own rambling tirade again.

    A total lamebrained asshole. Anyone who votes for him should soak their hands in bleach to disinfect the stench, then pray to whatever god they worship for forgiveness.

    I saw it happen, bunky, more than once. I saw film of returning soldiers being flipped off and called "babykillers" in airports. I saw friends of my own who returned from 'Nam spit at, called names, and insulted simply because they had been drafted against their will and sent to a war they didn't start. One guy I knew had a beer thrown on him because someone saw the outline of his dogtags under his civilian tee-shirt when he was on leave. Another friend was deliberately tripped in the airport, and laughed at when he fell with his pack to the airport floor. It happened all the damned time to our returning vets from 'Nam.

    It's no ****ing myth, and I'm sick of people who did not even exist back then pretending that it didn't happen. It DID happen, damn it.

    And it was appalling.

    Good for you. But I wasn't talking about the ad. That was payed for by Soros, and what else would you expect? I was referring to then Senator Clinton when she said that a willing suspension of disbelief was needed to believe Petraeus's testimony to Congress on the success of the surge. And Harry Reid's comments at a press conference that Petraeus had made dishonest statements in the past.

    Worth noting that this is the same douchebag who called Obama a liar in his address to Congress....
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    So you are still trying to change the topic?

And lastly, her service to her country is a big part of what she is running on.

    By the way, your trying to distract the topic by bringing up unrelated events is very telling.
    I don't agree that he called her somethoing other than a hero. I think you and others are taking a minor poor choice of words and building a mountain out of a mole hill. For political points. And believe me if she was running as a conservative candidate the left would definitely call her something other than a hero. President Bush Sr, was called a coward by some on the left for ejecting during a WW2 mission and blamed for the death of his crew and Senator McCain had everything about his military service questioned during his presidential campaign. Two pilots shot down during combat and drug through the mud by some members of the left media. When the expected code for behavior is set so extremely low by those on your side of the aisle it is absurd to feign outrage about such an innocuous use of words.

    Rule #1: Unless said veteran had acted disgracefully, do not attack their service or their promotion of their service.

    I have never heard anyone question Bush Sr.'s heroism. If the R and the D were reversed in the Walsh/Duckworth race I have absolutely no doubt that you would be screaming bloody murder over Walsh's comments.

    I call Bush and McCain hero's. But then again, I am consistant and not using idiology to base attacks on service.
