    Hagel is a prime example of another supposedly moderate Republican that goes wingnut neocon almost every time the rubber hits the road. Progressives, however, are supposed to love him for simply having a few brief moments of lucidity.

    There's no shortage of solid progressives who wore the uniform that could have served in this post admirably but Democrats keep taking the Nixon bait on this one. It's still somewhat shocking to those of us old enough to remember how Nixon's rat fuckers were able to paint George McGovern, who was awarded the distinguished flying cross for flying experimental aircraft into the teeth of the Luftwaffe, as a commie pinko weak on defense. Almost fifty years later Democrats still haven't managed to remove that slime from the bottom of their shows.  

    The only good thing I have to say about this nomination is that, like myself, Hagel was enlisted and would be the first such individual to hold this post.
