    Am still waiting to hear from Robbie Robertson on that one. Would like to do it, but would need it to be booked quite a bit in advance, so I can fit it into my schedule. The last one was a whole lot of fun.

    Kinda sad to see right wing media so impotent. They all come across as cartoons. Christopher Hitchens seems to be one of the few conservative intellectuals left. Even Andrew Sullivan "leans left-ish".

    No he doesn't. The old man lived, and he saved face too.

    Edited to add: does anyone else find it odd how the republicans are trying to say that a real American hero like Powell is not one of them?
    Why is Colin Powell considered a "hero"?

    I mean, come on, sure it is great that he served well in the Army, but what did he do that was considered "heroic"?

    I consider any one who devotes their life to service to country to be a hero.

    I graduated at MB Smiley. Heard they tore the ol'girl down. If Dana is playing it, it must be at least the 35th reunion.

    Not too many white folks came out of Smiley after 1975.

    35+ years as an officer, served in Vietnam, Germany, South Korea, Panama, Iraq, Libya, Grenada etc. Isn't it funny how quickly some conservatives can't seem to find a reason to call somebody who devoted most of their adult life to serving their country a war hero at the right time?

    This is why the republican party is increasingly marginalizing itself. I don't think they realize just how they look to those of us on the outside, but they are making it really hard for any one to want to join their party.
