Shorter George McGovern

"Dick Cheney is a coward who plays games with other peoples' lives, and couldn't carry my jockstrap."

In the war of my youth, World War II, I volunteered for military service at the age of 19 and flew 35 combat missions, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross as the pilot of a B-24 bomber. By contrast, in the war of his youth, the Vietnam War, Cheney got five deferments and has never seen a day of combat — a record matched by President Bush.

Plenty more where that came from, and these guys have it coming. Who knows, someday the Matt Cooper wing of the Cocktail Weenie Brigade might take a break from anonymously quoting them long enough to report on them.
