#1 I think a lot of democrats would melt into piles of stinky, reddish-brown goop if they tried to pretend they were patriotic. When you wave a flag, some act like vampires before a cross.

#2 Senate Democrats have mapped a political battle plan for the March congressional recess that calls on lawmakers to stage press events with active duty military personnel, veterans and emergency responders to bash President Bush on virtually every one of his national security policies.

So the Dems are actively courting the military to violate the law.

Art. 88. Contempt toward officials

Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.


I do recall a hissy fit through when a similar incident happen during Clinton's Administration. Once again, law for thee, but not for me.

The service regulations prohibit wearing the uniform in partisan events.

#3 I don't think any REAL military people will agree to this, and they cannot be coerced. The only people that belong to "IAVA" are the "political" military members who put politics above their duty to the nation. Once again the Democrats show they are incompetent to govern. They've launched a campaign that can only bring disaster and disgust upon their heads. May they all spend eternity "serving in combat" - what greater hell could they imagine?

#4 What is not said and very interesting is the dems must be instructed, prodded and coached regarding verbal interaction and exchanges with the military, as oppoed to what comes natural with the President and many others. President Bush in a pickle suit "following the ball" onto a US Navy aircraft carrier deck is still stuck in their slimey, whimpering throats.

#5 "Work with [veterans] organizations ... to find recently returned Iraq and Afghanistan veterans willing to discuss the mental effects they or their fellow veterans have experienced."

Yeah, that'll go over well with vets.

#6 All they can do is strike poses-- and they'll do it about as gracefully as Michael Moore dancing Swan Lake.

#8 As I read this plan, one wonders if there might be a backlash from the troops?

If memory serves, didn't Kerry get the backs of some vets turned towards him when he gave speeches to VFW audiences?

It is incredibly disgusting to use the military as props.

#9 You know the last senior officer to publically disagree with an President was relieved of command during war. Truman [D-MO] vs MacArthur.

#10 I would resign my commission and forfiet my retirement before I would stand in a single photo with a guy like Kerry of any of his counterparts.

#12 RINO Dems > "security" = "isolationism" > waiting for Aerican cities to be destroyed, or in the alt to pay and give all of our guns and sovereignty to Commie Asia. DO we really have to wonder why the Chicoms want maintream Americans to believe that American-specific extermination and genocide is good for everyone, even for Americans!?

#13 Here are some other tips:

Hang out at mental hospitals and see if you can get someone crazy who claims to have been in the military.

Hang out on skid row, see if you can find someone sleeping in the gutter who, in exchange for a pint of Jack Daniels, will claim to have been in the military. Bring dirty ol' Vietnam era jacket or cammies to dress them in for your photo op. Make sure to bring a flag - perhaps you can show them using it as a ground cover.

Hang out in graveyards after military funerals and see if you can find an angry family member. Best if you can interview a mother/father/wife/child but if they are supportive of their loved one's sacrifice you can always find one ol' bitch in every family that will be happy to spew blame.

Hang out at military bars and find out who'se bitter about not making rank, got fired, or got a dishonorable discharge and invite them to a town hall meeting.

And if you still have trouble finding enough men and women in the military willing to be in your charade, then have your staffers dress up in uniform and answer the questions from a sheet of talking points. It's no less legal than our other suggestions - so tell them not to worry about details like felony convictions.

#15 They may win votes for other reasons but nobody except the MSM will buy their security line.

#16 Robert Novak on TOWNHALL.com has an article indicating thatAL Gore may defeat and run against Hillary for 2008. WIll say again that iff the Rogues crisez remain unresolved by the Dubya and GOP-Right, I believe Hillary at best will run as VPOTUS - Americans, includ most Amer women, will NOT accept a woman as POTUS during times of national emergency or wartime; plus the Clintons may be about POWER but they are also about easy street and espec MEDIA SAINTHOOD. As quiet Commmies they, the Lefties, and aligned do not wish to be linked to anything pol incorrect and detrimental, includ but not limited to conspiracy for the attack, defeat and destruction of their own country and people for OWG and Socialism. America must "lose" even at it believes it is winning. A CLinton or Clintonite in the WH is a sure guarantee America will suffer detriment and defeat in the various Rogue crise the Mullahs will win, Kimmie will win, and TAIWAN and American superiority in the PACOA will be lost, PC of course. However imperfectly, America will have lost the WOT, its freedoms, and its sovereignty.

This is indeed possible. There definitely is a God, and he has one helluva sense of humor. Stock up on popcorn.
