Note to Obama: Watch and learn.

This is the way a rational, logic employing, righteous person who is not afraid of the lies of the right, communicates simple truths that get obscured time and time again by the idiots in the press. Statement from Wes Clark (also a video in that link):

There are many important issues in this Presidential election, clearly one of the most important issues is national security and keeping the American people safe. In my opinion, protecting the American people is the most important duty of our next President. I have made comments in the past about John McCain’s service and I want to reiterate them in order be crystal clear. As I have said before I honor John McCain’s service as a prisoner of war and a Vietnam Veteran. He was a hero to me and to hundreds of thousands and millions of others in Armed Forces as a prisoner of war. I would never dishonor the service of someone who chose to wear the uniform for our nation.

John McCain is running his campaign on his experience and how his experience would benefit him and our nation as President. That experience shows courage and commitment to our country – but it doesn’t include executive experience wrestling with national policy or go-to-war decisions. And in this area his judgment has been flawed – he not only supported going into a war we didn’t have to fight in Iraq, but has time and again undervalued other, non-military elements of national power that must be used effectively to protect America. But as an American and former military officer I will not back down if I believe someone doesn’t have sound judgment when it comes to our nation’s most critical issues.

See? One can be clear in attacking the wrongness in the claims of a lunatic. That does not have insulting or not honoring his service in the military as a necessary requirement.

Please, do not let this shit happen again. Don’t fuck this up, damnit.

Thank you for relentlessly pointing out the uncomfortably obvious, Wes Clark. And thank you as well for not caving in to idiotic criticism nor being afraid of the ridiculous lies from the desperate right. I only wish more people would start getting cues from you already.

  1. Yes, one can.

    The unfortunate part is that the majority of America reads at a six grade level. Yes. 6. grade. level. This explains the past 8 years, doesn’t it?! And my fear of 12 more.
