…because you never know where they’ll show up.

Conservative pundit Michael Barone writes about those who oppose the failed Bush Iraq policies (italics mine):

We have always had our covert enemies, but their numbers were few until the 1960s. But then the elite young men who declined to serve in the military during the Vietnam War set out to write a narrative in which they, rather than those who obeyed the call to duty, were the heroes. They have propagated their ideas through the universities, the schools and mainstream media to the point that they are the default assumptions of millions. Our covert enemies don’t want the Islamo-fascists to win. But in some corner of their hearts, they would like us to lose.

Barone attended Harvard and Yale in the sixties. He was eligible to serve in Vietnam, yet he did not. Goddamn “elite young men who declined to serve in the military during the Vietnam War.” What a hypocrite.

    Does the name “Five Deferment Dick” ring a bell.
