I'll call your Bronze Star and raise a DSC

This is getting hilarious.

Got some member of Congress wearing his Bronze Star, some ex-sargeant from NY with a DSC and nominated for some higher decorations saying, "I got more medals than you, so I know more.  I ain't been elected to anything, but I been nominated for a Medal of Honor.  You don't know jack.  I know lotsa stuff."

Sheeze.

Where's my Good Conduck Medal?  Ahhh.  I remember now.  I didn't get one because of that incident down in the village. 

Here's a war on a slippery slope, folks.  Public opinion polls show support for the prez and the war are declining steadily.  Those opportunists in both parties are going to listen to those polls.  They're both wanting to have some seats in Congress and maybe a prez elected next time around.

Ain't going to help to hook a microphone into the grave of Audie Murphy to ask what he thinks, despite all his decorations.  Ain't going to help to trot out your Hectors and Ajaxes to spout your line and parrot the opinions you fed him.  All his Charlie McCarthying ain't going to win no votes.

Those polls are speaking and the smart money's on the politicians who are listening.

Thanks for the comment LottoMike.

If this keeps up it seems inevitable. And unless a lot of Republicans in Congress begin jumping ship and distancing themselves from this unlucky president there's going to be a presidency and Congress overloaded with Democrats next congressional election.

Frankly that's something I hate to contemplate. High price for a war. The only thing that keeps either party in check, just a little bit, is the other party. If one gets too much of an edge it's going to be time to migrate to Bongo Bongoland.
