I picked up a "Leftist Action Ribbon" this week for valorous duty in verbal combat with odious ones in a comment thread at Jess's place. Silly me. I defended the Swift Boat Vets, and I took exception to one citizen's referring to the President as a "giggling murderer" and describing our troops being "child killers in an unjust war". As a result, in the span of a couple of hours, I was called hateful, a kook, a bastard, and a liar.
I was pretty upset about it, but then ... I realized, with these qualifications, these guys may be preparing to back me for the Demo presidential nod in '08.
Note: I would show you the "bastard" medal I received from Ralph, but this self-described "non-Senate Democrat" deleted his and my comments from his site.
