Connecticut Attorney General and last year's Dance with the Stars winner, Sir Richard Blumenthal was awarded the prestigious Purple Heart with Green Clovers and Blue Diamonds.
Blumenthal won the award during combat maneuvers years ago against Leprechauns. Often called, "The Forgotten War," Blumenthal and thousands of other delusional politicians were caught up in a overseas contingency operation against the Wee People.
"I left a lot of fine men--brothers--back there on those faire fields," Blumenthal said. "I don't think I ever came back. At least a part of me is back there. Could you cue up that Billy Joel song. What was it? Still in Saigon, or whatever it was."
Blumenthal told reporters he was attached to the 327th Magic Bean Division stationed in the Iron Da Nang Khe Sanh Pusan perimeter during the war.
During one engagement, Blumenthal caught a sizable portion of fairy dust in his eyes, leading to temporary blindness. He said that the conflict's unpopularity and perhaps its lack of existence were reasons why the award was delayed.

Just the headline is funny.
It was hard to follow that.
I heard Obama put him in for the new “Courageous Restraint” medal. He coould have gon to Viet Nam but he courageously restrained and being a humble man didnt what to brag about this newly recognized valor.
It wouldn’t surprise me if he uses this in an upcoming speech.
Yeah, and remember when they returned and all the protesters spat magic beans at them?
What, no Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds; no Légion d’honneur; no Pour le Mérite (the Blue Max)? What a wimp!
