Exterminator Update

When I recently wrote about Tom DeLay joking about the Democrats being stuck in the '70s and saying that they wanted to "...fight like McGovern", I overlooked an important fact. George McGovern is a veteran of WWII. He flew 35 missions as the pilot of a B-24 bomber and earned a Distinguished Flying Cross. DeLay has said that he and Dan Quayle were "victims of an unusual phenomenon back in the days of the undeclared Southeast Asian war. So many minority youths had volunteered for the well-paying military positions to escape poverty and the ghetto that there was literally no room for patriotic folks like himself." There are not words to express the contempt that man deserves.
