    a possible screwup by this administration, then an investigation into why he got shot down is fully warranted. He lives in a glass house and throws stones.

    •  Investigation? (1+ / 0-)

      Still disagree, but it would be fun to compare his service record to those of one of the many recently-relieved Naval officers.  Firing ships' captains and squadron commanders seems to be part of the morning post-PT, pre-breakfast routine at the Department of the Navy.  I doubt everyone's favorite "Maverick" would be well-received in today's Navy.

      •  I'm not actually calling for any investigation (6+ / 0-)

        into his naval career, or even the many post-navy scandals he seems to have made a career of being involved in (except for the most recent ones that we're still reeling from). I'm just saying that calling for such investigations is as if not more justified than the investigation he's calling for here, and that most likely if we did do both, he'd regret it profoundly. He makes Lance Armstrong seem honorable and heroic by comparison. At least Armstrong never caused anyone to die to my knowledge, and was actually entertaining.
