BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week
Oh, wait, it appears those characteristics help one get elected in Georgia.
Here's a BuzzFlash excerpt:
You can't keep a bad man down when it comes to Republican Southern politics, and so Saxby "Chickenhawk" Chambliss will return to the U.S. Senate after defeating Democratic Vietnam War Veteran Jim Martin.You can read the rest at GOPhypocrites.com and see a historical list of BuzzFlash's other worthy selections.
Chambliss was a coward who got out of the Vietnam War by claiming a football injury prevented him from serving. In 2002, he ran a savagely dishonest campaign against triple Vietnam War amputee Max Cleland, running ads where Cleland's face morphed into Osama bin Laden's.
Southern Republicans love to elect tin soldiers who look strong and brave and love war, as long as other people are fighting it for them. And many of the voters who re-elected Chambliss may be more loyal to the notions of the Confederacy than to America.
In fact, in 2007, we "honored" Chambliss as the BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week, noting that he yearned for the days of Stonewall Jackson when he stated in the Senate Armed Services Committee: "We need better intelligence. If we had better intelligence in the Civil War, we'd be quoting Jefferson Davis, not Lincoln."
