Chicken Hawk Down – By Tom Tomorrow
Hee hee haw haw HAAAAAAA!!!!
*falls off chair*
It seemed to have caused a stir a week or two back. (I’m late for the party again, what else is new. But Tom Tomorrow nailed in six panels what I have been trying to say for over a year.).
And I have to disagree with Lt. Smash… clearly the illustrations depicted two overweight walter-mitty-types who wouldn’t survive their first week of basic training (or hold down a job, or finish a crossword puzzle…).
This cartoon was directed at all of the “tough-talking cowards in the safety of their own homes”-types that annoy the shit out of me.
In sharp contrast, Lt. Smash is out there doing a tough job, and I respect that. I understand why he was offended, perhaps Veterans Day was a poor choice of when to run that cartoon, but I really don’t think that was directed at folks like him.
And to break up the “Pro-Military”=”Pro-Iraq” stereotypes that wingnuts swear is inseperable… I offer Veterans Against the Iraq War and Bring Them Home Now!
EricBrooks.Com® – Sometimes “Supporting The Troops” also means trying to keep our sons and daughters serving this country out of harm’s way when it’s unnecessary.
… and uh, what branch of the military did Glenn Reynolds serve in? I’m just curious, and I can’t find that anywhere on his site.
