We have a chance to take back the House and the Senate, which was unheard of even two months ago. Go do something about these people!

The GOP once again went after Decorated combat veteran Senator John Kerry yesterday. The 101st Fighting Keyboardists and assorted neocon shills may be conspicuously absent when their country is in need, yet they're always on duty, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, to smear any survivors. But this time, the good Senator took the gloves off.
"I'm sick and tired of a bunch of despicable Republicans who will not debate real policy, who won't take responsibility for their own mistakes, standing up and trying to make other people the butt of those mistakes. It disgusts me that a bunch of these Republican hacks who've never worn the uniform of our country are willing to lie about those who did." Sen. John Kerry 10/31/06
VP Dick Cheney - several deferments, by marriage and timely fatherhood.
Karl Rove, occasional Deputy Chief of Staff and alleged full time smear artist, escaped the draft and did not serve
Secretary of State and former NSA Condaleeza Rice - did not serve
Republican Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist - did not serve.
Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert - did not serve.
Republican Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay - did not serve.
Rush Limbaugh - did not serve
Sean Hannity - did not serve
Ann Coulter - did not serve
Bill O'Reilly - did not serve
I could go on and on with this list. To note all the GOP politicians and Republican pundits who both did not serve and who now happily smear those who did, would take up several front pages. And this craven GOP breed of prestige parasites are particularly loathsome because once off stage and out of frame, they will insidiously cut VA benefits in favor of corporate welfare and tax cuts for billionaires. Not to mention they spooked us into war against the wrong country.
Meanwhile, our troops are being killed and maimed in Iraq for the colossal blunder and subsequent ass covering of the Republicans. Taxpayers have been fleeced of the better part of half a trillion dollars. And until the Republicans are sent packing, there is no end in sight.
