Not to mention Weasley's shameless Rolling Stone pandering for the gay vote. He's as narcissistic as Kerry.

All that's missing from this rent-a-disgrace mob is Kerry's bandaid brothers. It's hard to imagine that after Cleland's embarrassing errand to Crawford and Kerry's Ghengis Khan moment that Dems actually think this will help Moutha. They really are delusional. They'll find out that most Dems of western PA are better conservatives than our RINOs. These folks aren't entitlement sheep.

WJAC changed its report. It's Bob Kerrey, not John Kerry. Apparently the correct name wasn't seared into the author's memory.

That does make more sense. It's hard to imagine Mr. sour-grapes "I'm John Kerry" lowering himself to prop up anyone else, with the exception of maybe Ted Kennedy. He wants to direct minions, not be one.

Wesley was also on the front cover the the gay magazine "The Advocate". He looked gay. Had a shirt on unbuttoned with a white T-shirt on under it with a big crap eating grin on his face. Yuck.

Yes, I chose to skip last weekend's rally, after Larry Bailey decided not to have a "Boot Murtha" booth.

Was that the reason? I thought it may have something to do with keeping you away so you wouldn't drool over Irey.

I figured attendance wouldn't top 200 (who knew I was being overly optimistic?!?),

I wouldn't know, I wasn't there and never will be at one of these events that seem to be nothing more than an opportunity for a lot of those in attendance to aggrandize themselves. Too bad Code Pink wasn't waging a counter-stand on the corner hold sign and shout protest, the ensuing melee would have been priceless.

so I did a charity run instead.

See my comment above, particularly noting the word aggrandize.

And have no regrets. If I never attend another "Support the Troops" event as long as I live, I'll still have accomplished more than 95% of the crowd at this forum.

All you've accomplished and yet remain so unappreciated. Alas, but 'tis a Shakespearian life you lead, Cooper.

Now run along and find a nice "penis" or "breast" thread somewhere.

Evidently that charity run* you participated in was not for the benefit of the Good Samaritan Society.


* Coop was in a charity run in case anyone may have missed reading it.

So you have never gone (shocking!) nor will ever go to one of the "Support our troops!" events, and yet you know what they're all about? Fascinating.

And by the way, Bozo, out of all the males on FR I have probably been the least likely to post any comments regarding Commissioner Irey's looks. But of course that didn't stop the clowns from circulating rumors (did you ever do anything else?).

...which was brought up only because I, snarky little JLA growing roots in my desk chair, tried some asanine jab and it backfired!

Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns.

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
My favorite server shut down
I disapprove.

Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Well, Cooper, I've had my disagreements with the "clowns", (note that you do not see 'jla' posting there), but to somehow think that only members of that website think of you as an insecure, self-promoting self-glorifier would be an erroneous mistake on your part.

Now I'd love to continue this conversation but I've got to go out and help old ladies across the street, organize a fund raiser for the local Boy Scout troop, and paint the neighbor's two-story 3,500 sq ft house before they get home from work this evening.

Stop posting so much lest folks begin to think you're all talk, little action.

What a beautiful story! But how will you possibly accomplish all that while still planted firmly in your precious little chair?

I thought you had a problem with me doing too much? Now it's a problem with me doing too little?

Or maybe you just have a problem...

You're right! I was wrong thinking it was RS, which is where Kerry tried to be all cool and drop the "F bomb".

"Cyber squealer"? I gotta stick up for Petronski (not that he needs it). Without him, I wouldn't be on Free Republic. Who cares? Well, so far I've sent $500 to the Irey campaign and hope to send more. Others have undoubtedly are doing the same. Goes to show you never can tell.

Maybe you should think about how words like that will salt the wounds of the parents who stood there telling us of their beloved fallen ones.
Your opinion and the truth couldn't be further apart , and if you had been there you would understand.

Unfortunately, it's quite easy to tell. Sparse attendance at rallies, threads ignored even after major pinging and begging for bumps, cricket chirps when asking for volunteers, etc.

I appreciate all you've done, Red. But it doesn't change a darned thing. I can find some conservatives in Massachusetts, too. So should we start calling it a conservative state?

Now Hugh Shelton is joining the mix for Jackass Murtha.

"Wesley Clark has totally gone over to the dark side."

Has? I'll never forget when he first announced his candidacy. He was asked his position on something and begged off until he could contact his people by cell phone to find out what his position was. He did this while reporters stood by.

I'm kind of surprised to see Hugh Shelton stump for Murtha but I think he came to power under Clinton, didn't he?

Like Shinseki, Shelton hates Rumsfeld.

Thanks Red, I didn't know that. It must extend to Repubs too.

Here's a Wasington Post profile from 1998:

General Shelton, who took over as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in October 1998, serves as the principal military advisor to the president, the defense secretary and the National Security Council. The 56-year-old general and former paratrooper has been seasoned in a number of overseas assignments. He served two tours in Vietnam during the war, commanding a Special Forces detachment and later an infantry company. During the 1991 Persian Gulf War, he was assistant commander for operations of the 101st Airborne Division. And in 1994, he led U.S. troops into Haiti. Shelton came to the chairman's job from the elite Special Operations Command, which he headed.
