Poppers wheatbag...

=pompous windbag and we all know who the poppers wheatbag is.

[W]hen John McCain sternly warns the swift boat veterans of ''reopening the wounds of Vietnam,'' it's worth asking: Why is Vietnam a ''wound'' and why won't it heal? The answer: ...because it was a national trauma. And whose fault is that?
[I]f you had to [pin it all on one person], Lt. John F. Kerry would stand a better shot at taking the solo trophy than almost anyone... Today Sen. Kerry says he's proud of his anti-war activism, but that's not what it was. [T]here's simply no precedent for what John Kerry did: a man who put his combat credentials to the service of smearing his country's entire armed forces (emphasis mine) as rapists, decapitators and baby killers. That's the ''wound[.]'' That's why a crummy little war on the other side of the world still festers. Because Kerry didn't just call for U.S. withdrawal, he impugned the honor of every man he served with.


And this is the man who we should elect because of his "honorable" service to our nation.

Indeed, the only specific example of a U.S. war criminal that Kerry gave was himself. As he said on ''Meet The Press'' in April 1971, ''Yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free fire zones. I used 50-caliber machineguns, which we were granted and ordered to use.''

That is honor? Perhaps I could respect him somewhat for admitting just his crimes, but how could he possibly know that thousands of others who served there did the same? How could he know that? And according to my understanding of his 1971 testimony before congress, he blamed the government that sent men to Vietnam for the atrocities he claimed they all committed there. So location & circumstance are all it takes to turn otherwise law-abiding and moral persons into sadistic monsters.

Check out the column by Mark Steyn of the Chicago SunTimes in its entirety & unedited by me.

Thank you, Feste.

As for poppers wheatbag's "reporting for duty," please do not bring it up if you can't back it up. You are no more fit for command than I am.
