In Defense of Drunken Sailors
Senator McCain, referring to members of congress and their pork barrel frenzy said "they are spending like drunken Sailors." Wrong, Senator McCain. The Sailors to whom you refer were spending THEIR OWN MONEY.

And after we spent our money on beer and whores, we got a few hours sleep and went back to our duty stations and proudly served and stood watch off the coast of God knows where. And when I see the Flag flying, I don't see something I can wrap myself in and instantly become a patriotic badass.

As a former drunken Sailor, I have no desire to be compared to members of congress.

1. Damn straight, shipmate.
I spent my own money on booze when I served. And when I didn't have enough $$$$, I tried to win some in a crap game, like any respectable swabbie.

2. and don't drunken sailors STOP spending when they run out of cash?
Bush just cracks open the Social Security funds and lets rip!

Bush spends and the economy tanks. Of course, he's not a real sailor, is he! Even his little sister she's scared if he's in charge of the boat.
