Warmonger! Draft Dodger! Warmonger!
Let me see if I have the sequence of Democratic electoral argument straight...
1992: "Don't vote for the World War II combat veteran who was shot down; war is immoral! Vote for the moral, draft dodging peace protester."
1996: "Don't vote for the World War II combat veteran who was shot up; war is immoral! Vote for the moral, draft dodging peace protester who has led us into wars unrelated to American national security."
2000: "Don't vote for the draft-avoiding non-veteran; he's a chickenhawk! Vote for the combat-reporting veteran. Only a military veteran understands how to be Commander in Chief."
2004: "Don't vote for the draft-avoiding non-veteran; he's a chickenhawk! Vote for the combat veteran with a chest full of medals. Only a heavily decorated military veteran understands how to be Commander in Chief."
2008: "Don't vote for the Navy-brat Vietnam combat veteran who was shot down and held as a POW for five and a half years, served with distinction for more years after his return, is heavily decorated, and who has had three children in either the Navy or Marines in combat positions; the Vietnam and Iraq wars were immoral! Vote for either the wife of the moral, draft-dodging peace protester or the cocaine-abusing "community activist" -- you can't be Commander in Chief if you're too close to the military."
Have I got this about right, or did I miss something (as usual)?

It's Cause the Democrats have principles ya'll.
If you haven't served in the military and support this war, you're a chickenhawk.
If you once served in the military but aren't forward deployed in theater, you are a chickenhawk like Uncle Jimbo of Blackfive.
If you are currently serving in the military and have voiced support for the war, then you are violating civilian control of the military and should shut up.
You see, Democrats are quite principled and courageous.

I have a name for these kinds of principles: "nonce principles." They are deeply held, self-evident principles that apply for the nonce.

That just about sums up the Democrat argument. Don't vote for X, he's evil (because he's a Republican, a combat veteran, a Guardsman, a conservative, a man, a businessman, an oilman!!!!!, etc...yada...yada...yada).

Remember, as Obama's man said, McCain is a warmonger. We don't want no stink'n warmonger as president; we just might win this war.
