Generation Chickenhawk

I'm sorry to announce that even when the likes of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and all the other Republican Chickenhawks are mercifully out of our lives, a whole new breed of big-talk-no-action types are waiting in the wings to proudly proclaim "I love war -- but for God's sake don’t ask me to go!"

Max Blumenthal went directly into the chicken coop and found a whole bunch of them at the College Republican National Convention. And you'll be shocked to hear this but, while they all support Bush's failed policy in Iraq, none of them plan on enlisting themselves.

Max's best line in a great film: "For some reason, the college Republicans I met, had a curiously high level of health problems."
