To those whom may not know The USA has a program to acknowledge the parents of our war dead, We call them Gold Star Parents.

Some of you may remember Cindy Shehan, her son was KIA in Afghanistan.

So now we have the Khans in a verbal war of words with a presidential candidate. Very Presidential.

[shake head]

I can't understand how Donald Troll gets away with this kind of behavior time after time. Well, I guess I do, but I don't want to believe that of (apparently) half the USA population. [shake head]

Ya know...he must know it's wrong. Even so, column inches upon column inches are being bled over this - that's his name out there in boldface all over. Free publicity - that's what a 'smart man' he is...

For such a 'smart' guy, I'm floored by how poorly he speaks. Mind you, that too, may be an act. Both of the Clintons and Obama are /actually/ smart, and I know people have mocked the latter for being professorial. Do you really want an affable idiot in charge, or someone who stops to think about the consequences and who'd rather spend time with his family than drinking with legislators?

The subject matter at hand is an utter disgrace, but those two words perfectly sum up that particular candidate.

*sigh*

George Walker Bush
Yeah...I thought about that after replying. Truth be told, he is an affable idiot. The current guy is an idiot a****le.

P.S. Just saw this gem:
