Opening Arguments

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to

Lurch wows 'em with a war story:

(CNSNews.com) – In the closing minutes of the Iran nuclear negotiations in Vienna this week, Secretary of State John Kerry made a comment about having gone to war as a young man and not wanting to do so again, leaving everyone in the room, including the Iranians, with “tears in their eyes.”

Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman, the lead U.S. negotiator in the talks, recounted the moment while addressing the annual Generation Prague Conference at the State Department on Wednesday.

Awww. Tears in their eyes. John Kerry reporting for duty! God, I hate that pompous phony-war-hero, we-all-turned-into-baby-killers-testifying horse's ass.

The administration keeps throwing out that false dichotomy, either this lousy deal or war, when in fact nobody was calling for war. What was offered as an alternative was keeping and even strengthening the sanctions on Iran. You know, less money to creat mischief instead of the masive inusion they're gonna get now.

Of all the critiques of the Iran deak, this one, from someone who's actually read it, seems the most cogent to me.

My two cents, fwiw, is that, even if the deal does exactly what the administration says it will, why is it a bad idea for Iran to go nuclear now but a good thing if it can go nuclear in 10 years? Are they going to stop being a rogue state sponsor of terrorism and decide to become a "member of the world community"?

" John Kerry reporting for duty! God, I hate that pompous phony-war-hero, we-all-turned-into-baby-killers-testifying horse's ass."

John Kerry isn't my favorite either but let's be clear about one thing.  Kerry was actually IN Vietnam and served his country when called. 

Dick Cheney recieved 5 deferments using every means possible to avoid service while claiming he didn't go serve his country because he had "other priorities".  What a patriot. But Dickie has no problem sending other people's children off to be maimed when he wouldn't go himself. Total hypocrite.

Where was George W? Fighting tumbleweeds in Texas while able to secure a safe position in the Texas National Guard.  I'm sure no strings were pulled to little Georgie in the Guard rather than regular army.   The last two years of Georgie's 6 year hitch he never flew or reported to duty and worked on a Senate campaign in Alabama while stationed in Texas.

How 'bout El Rushbo who avoided military conscription by first having a S-2 college deferment, never graduated by the way, then later reclassified as Y-1 for a pilonidal cyst on his ass.

Or that great conservative icon NRA board member Teddy Nugent. The guy who wears army jackets and proves his hunting powress by killing caged deer. Here is what Mr. Badass had to say about his military career, quoting Teddy:

"I got my physical notice 30 days prior to. Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin' and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie. I had long hair, and it started gettin' kinky, matted up. Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value. I just had chips, Pepsi, beer-stuff I never touched-buttered poop, little jars of Polish sausages, and I'd drink the syrup, I was this side of death, Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.

See, I approached the whole thing like, Ted Nugent, cool hard-workin' dude, is gonna wreak havoc on these imbeciles in the armed forces. I'm gonna play their own game, and I'm gonna destroy 'em. Now my whole body is crusted in poop and piss. I was ill. And three or four days before, I started stayin' awake. I was close to death, but I was in control. I was extremely antidrug as I've always been, but I snorted some crystal methedrine. Talk about one wounded motherf*cker. A guy put up four lines, and it was for all four of us, but I didn't know and I'm vacuuming that poop right up. I was a walking, talking hunk of human poop. I was six-foot-three of sin. So the guys took me down to the physical, and my nerves, my emotions were distraught. I was not a good person. I was wounded. But as painful and nauseous as it was — 'cause I was really into bein' clean and on the ball — I made gutter swine hippies look like football players. I was deviano.

So I went in, and those guys in uniform couldn't believe the smell. They were ridiculin' me and pushin' me around and I was cryin', but all the time I was laughin' to myself. When they stuck the needle in my arm for the blood test I passed out, and when I came to they were kicking me into the wall. Then they made everybody take off their pants, and I did, and this sergeant says, "Oh my God, put those back on! You f*cking swine you!" Then they had a urine test and I couldn't piss, But my poop was just like ooze, man, so I poop in the cup and put it on the counter. I had poop on my hand and my arm. The guy almost puked. I was so proud. I knew I had these chumps beat. The last thing I remember was wakin' up in the ear test booth and they were sweepin' up. So I went home and cleaned up.

They took a putty knife to me. I got the street rats out of my hair, ate some good steaks, beans, potatoes, cottage cheese, milk. A couple of days and I was ready to kick ass. And in the mail I got this big juicy 4-F. They'd call dead people before they’d call my ass. But you know the funny thing about it? I'd make an incredible army man. I'd be a colonel before you knew what hit you, and I'd have the baddest bunch of motherf*ckin' killers you'd ever seen in my platoon. But I just wasn't into it. I was too busy doin' my own thing, you know? "
He later said about the incident he was "so proud" . Another great patriot, loves to shoot caged deer but not so bad when the prey shoots back.
If you hate Kerry so much Leo, and he actually was in Vietnam, what's your take on all the draft dodgers now hawks who squirmed out of service when their nation called but now strut around with an American flag lapel pin on?

Only his peers, the Swift Boat veterans, that wrote "Unfit For Command" can truly attest to Kerry's war hero phoniness.  I think he had one veteran that stood up for him.

If the Iranians had tears in their eyes at the end of the negotiations, it was because they were laughing too much.
