41. A-FUCKING-MEN!!!
Edited on Fri Sep-05-08 08:27 AM by Odin2005
Cleland is a war hero
Kerry is a war hero
McGovern is a war hero
Bush Sr. is a war hero
JFK was a war hero

McLame is no "war hero."

That's not that I disrespect his service, but, honestly, being a POW is not really that "heroic." That fact that he was tortured and yet still supports our torturing of Islamists disgusts me.

I've admired Cleland ever since I first heard of him.
