James Wolcott Slaps Another Repub Chickenhawk

Here's the great James Wolcott slapping yet another Repuke Chickenhawk -- the National Review Online's Michael Ledeen -- who managed to smear both Republican Chuck Hagel and Democrat Jimmy Carter all at once. Go Wolcott:
Let's review, shall we?

Chuck Hagel, two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star for his Vietnam War service.

Jimmy Carter, seven years in the Navy, including serving under Admiral Rickover in the development of the nuclear submarine program.

Michael Ledeen? Let's just say he won't be regaling them at the VFW lodge anytime soon. Indeed, the closest he's come to combat has been listening to Roger L. Simon's Hollywood war stories from his heroic screenwriting days.

Read the rest here.

A must read as it applies to so many conservatives, who have done so little to defend our country and yet are so incredibly tough with their rhetoric.
