Why The Long Face?

Oh. I forgot. Nevermind

This is what I wake up to today, the sound of morning talk radio playing the clip of John Kerry eating his shoe.

A few interpretations have been floating around today. Haven't heard them all, but most settle on the following: if you're unable to support yourself you'll be forced to enlist.

I thought of this a little differently. To me, he equated the stigma of the term "flipping burgers" to "ending up in Iraq".

Not only does that imply that the military are a bunch of dolts, but it implies that serving your country is the lowest form of service, period.

I'm ashamed of him for the soldiers who are fighting for his freedom and protection. He is alive because we have a military. He is free to flap his extraordinarily high and mightily ignorant hole because our military and generations before have fought for it. His riches have not been revoked or usurped because we aren't a socialist or totalitarian nation.

In fact he wouldn't last more than five minutes if the above wasn't true.

Maybe we should take the approach of the parent who takes away the toy of the child who doesn't take care of it or appreciate it. Revoke his freedoms. See how much he will miss them.
