it means that they have more republicans out there than democrats and some of them arent even our leaders anymore, ronald reagan is dead, and then you have the most random ass people dan quayle, arnold schwarzenegger, ted kennedy, tom lantos, it is very edited. I mean if someone could do the research im sure you could come up with a list conveying the opposite.

SO remove 10 of the clearly "added for effect" examples and than read it. John Wayne and Ronald Reagan don't need to be there. But the next time Bill O'Reilley supports the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld war in Iraq atleast you'll know the pool of experience from which they draw there decisions...

exactly, king bling. the list was creqted with an agenda, therefor there must have also some demon-cratic political forces that were ommited from the field because of some not-so-attractive military records, and some republicans with spotless hero-status records that were looked over as well, to show how "fucked up" republicunts are.

 

republlicans are, i suppose by nature, smarter, so im sure more of them sought out and found ways out of the draft and/or service, yet they sent our children, friends and family to fight and die for phantom, political causes. its hipocritical and downright dastardly... i think that is what Sen. Howard W. Carroll was trying to show... how heroic the demoncrats are contrasted with the anti-hero republicans.
