America vs. The World

The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Who's your daddy?

Last week I wrote about how the Democrats could learn a trick or two about standing up for themselves from the Dixie Chicks. Looks like former Reagan official Jim Webb, running for the U.S. Senate seat in Virginia as a Democrat, knows how it's done:
"George Felix Allen Jr. and his bush-league lapdog, Dick Wadhams, have not earned the right to challenge Jim Webb's position on free speech and flag burning. Jim Webb served and fought for our flag and what it stands for, while George Felix Allen Jr. chose to cut and run. When he and his disrespectful campaign puppets attack Jim Webb they are attacking every man and woman who served. Their comments are nothing more than weak-kneed attacks by cowards," Webb spokesman Steve Jarding said.
Yowza! That's almost as good as Rep. John Murtha calling Karl Rove a cowardly fatass.

It's good to remind the country that, despite all their flag waving, the Republican leadership's service record is not exactly outstanding.

UPDATE: Steve Gilliard has the full text of Webb's press release and some commentary over at The News Blog.
