    It’s easy for you chicken hawk neocons to manufacture lies about those who refused to serve your wars of convenience. Here’s a little dose of truth:

    Well said. McCain never met a war he didn’t like, as long as he didn’t have to fight it.

    Some people see what they want to see and read into it what they personally feel. Therefore, you must see being a war monger as a bad thing.

    McCain did go around singing Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran to the tune of Barbara Anne did he not?

    What exactly is “Hateful and Delusional” about the toon?

    How is the characterization slander. McCain is a Hawk and will admit it himself. He thinks Obama and by extension Kerry is too willing to promote peace. The cartoon is pretty much how each describes the other.
    I don’t see either side being propped up.
    They need to meet in the middle.

    McCain never fought in a real war like I did.


    WWII, the big one.
    Down and dirty in fox holes with mortars and machine guns.
    We never heard a no drones.

    McCain may be old and slightly senile. On the other hand, Kerry is a gold digging gigolo, lying traitorous, and useless waste of skin. He has accomplished nothing of significance in his lifetime other than getting elected.
    As Secretary of State his a perfect match for Obama. Two peas in a pod.

    Your calling Kerry a traitor does not make him a traitor.

    The people who wrote the US Constitution were painfully aware of how King George 3 would haul American colonists across the Atlantic to answer to charges of treason hurled at them by the British army. Of course, they weren’t allowed lawyers, and their witnesses were an ocean away. That’s why you will find in the Bill of Rights such provisions as:
     • right to counsel
     • right to mandatory process to summon witnesses
     • requirement for trial in district where supposed offense occurred
     • speedy and public trial by jury of one’s peers
     
    But those all came along as part of the Bill of Rights, in 1789, 2 years after the Constitution itself, in which the Founders defined the one and only criminal law that they wanted to make damn sure was never perverted or repealed by treating it as a mere statute:

    “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

    “The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”

    Clearly, judging from the above comments, there are people living in America today for whom these words are no better than dog-doo. Since anyone harboring such unpatriotic, unAmerican attitudes is probably too arrogant and spiteful to ever be ashamed of themselves, we can only hope that they never attain any sort of power.
