  •  Isn't this the truth? (5+ / 0-)

    Throughout U.S. history, war veterans have been handy ornaments for many politicians to parade around with on national holidays....

    Except in notable cases like Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss, who as everybody knows got elected by morphing triple-amputee VN veteran Senator Max Cleland's face into Osama Bin Laden's. Chambliss even accused Cleland of lacking the courage to fight terrorism effectively.                                    

    With regard to exactly how pols use veterans, I guess it's a matter of priorities.
