Outstanding Article by George McGovern - kicking the shit out of cheney
The former democratic nominee for president who SERVED IN COMBAT during WWII rebuts the cowardly cheney and takes no prisoners:

A hearty WELL DONE to the B-24 BOMBER PILOT. He landed several direct hits on five deferments dick, the cowardly vice president who had to fuck his wife to get one last deferment.

1. when Cheney endorses a war, he exempts himself from participation"
Damn, you could substitute just about ANY repuke's name for Dick's and it would be accurate.

Great article. He really calls Dick and George the cowards that they are.

3. Excellent assessment, Mr. McGovern!
Not directly related to the topic at hand, but worth noting: Iraq vets come home and run for office as Democrats.

6. 35 missions over occupied Europe into the teeth of the heaviest flak barrage in recorded history.
Got a DFC for his heroism. And a fat five deferments coward has the balls to criticize him?!?! You can't even make this shit up.

10. It is rather funny and telling
that conservatives think the likes of cheney and limbaugh are brave badasses while their view of heroes like Senators McGovern and Kerry are sissy boys. Boy I wish I were a brave patriotic conservative!!!

12. You've got that right. They have nerve. And the MSM should be bringing up the irony daily.
We can dream.

7. Excellent! LOL -- Quote of the week:

We, of course, already know that when Cheney endorses a war, he exempts himself from participation. On second thought, maybe it's wise to keep Cheney off the battlefield he might end up shooting his comrades rather than the enemy.

11. Reid and Pelosi should pay attention to McGovern!
Edited on Wed Apr-25-07 10:57 AM by Hart2008
The new generation should take heed of the elder statesman:

"It is my firm belief that the Cheney-Bush team has committed offenses that are worse than those that drove Nixon, Vice President Spiro Agnew and Atty. Gen. John Mitchell from office after 1972. Indeed, as their repeated violations of the Constitution and federal statutes, as well as their repudiation of international law, come under increased consideration, I expect to see Cheney and Bush forced to resign their offices before 2008 is over."
http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-mcgovern24apr...

The impeachments are required to restore the Republic. This is not about politics. It is about defending the Constitution against domestic enemies, and not all domestic enemies are terrorists.
