I guy who I have a lot of respect for, Mike McKain
writes: Though I appreciate the sentiment behind Jason's argument (i.e. those who support the war should be willing to fight in it instead of sending others in their stead), I think this kind of personal attack (on Ryan Silberstein) is rather childish and rude; moreover, it does not advance the discourse about the issues at hand.
While the question of who is actually fighting the war is wholly valid, to attack an individual for their personal decisions about their future will win you little support or sympathy, at least with me.
Mike, your comment, you just advanced the discourse my man. But I'm not here to quibble - here is the real deal. Low life creeps like Ryan are destroying this country with their empty headed jingoism.
They should have been personally attacked beginning ten years ago. I'm trying to make up for lost time.
Also, I am attacking Ryan as a coward, but only as a proxy for all the other low life yellow elephant GOP cowards who voted for Bush and cheer on this vanity war. A Modest Proposal:
Now if Ryan decided to apologize for voting for Bush and cheering on his vanity war - I'd stop.
In fact - that is an open invitation to the Delaware-wingnut-osphere. Dt, Hube, Grex, and the rest, if you apologize for voting for Bush, and start seriously working to make this country whole again, I will forgive you.
PS: The addition of Mike McKain to the blog roll is way overdue.
