Paul is raising a fair question about a generation of men who did everything possible to avoid military service and exposing themselves or their loved ones to personal danger or sacrifice, while ravenously endorsing war and blithely sending others off to die and suffer the disabilities and traumas of combat.

Dick Cheney epitomized this type of coward, hypocrite and opportunist.
Wow, three more bombs! (Coward, hypocrite, and opportunist!)

But I actually agree with you. I think the language and the descriptions of Gingrich and Cheney are fine -- indeed, appropriate. Indeed, more appropriate than more mealy-mouthed language that gives them respect they don't deserve. I was just a little surprised to see you using such language, but I'm happy you are.

Cheers. Off to work.
