    But you have to cut him a lot of slack.  After all, for six years he was in a Vietnamese prison camp........

    So, I mean, isn't he entitled to run his mouth off as a perpetual fixture on the Sunday shows, however preposterous or outright mendacious his spoutings?

    The above is a lame attempt at humor, invoking how "for six years..." was his constant refrain in the 2008 campaign, whenever challenged on something

    •  There is even a Rusian report that the Viet Cong (0+ / 0-)

      Never promote men who seek after a state-established religion; it is spiritual tyranny--the worst of despotism. It is turnpiking the way to heaven by human law, in order to establish ministerial gates to collect toll. John Leland
