Sweet Jeebus! You played for the Bills, Dude…

seriously, you got kicked to the curb, Kemp. I’m supposed to put any weight in this line?
An Open Letter to Rush, Sean, Laura, Ann, Mark, et al.::By Jack Kemp

Churchill had what he called his “wilderness years” in the late 1920s and early 1930s, but as the storm clouds gathered over Europe in the ’30s, he became increasingly at odds with the government of Neville Chamberlain. He was even banned from talk radio (aka the BBC) in those days.

As war engulfed Europe and the Nazis terrorized the Low Countries and France, he was called back to service as prime minister of a divided war Cabinet. Gilbert’s history of that event says:

“By nightfall on 10 May, 1940, Churchill was prime minister. He later wrote of how, when he went to bed that night, he was conscious ‘of a profound sense of relief. At last I had authority to give directions over the whole scene. I felt as if I were walking with destiny, and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.’ Yet there was still some Conservative opposition to his emergence as prime minister; on May 11 Lord Davidson wrote to Stanley Baldwin: ‘The Tories don’t trust Winston. After the first clash of war is over it may well be that a sounder government may emerge.'”

Obviously historical parallels are never perfect, but I believe this one reflects the reality that, like Churchill, McCain’s whole life has been but preparing him to be best able to lead our nation and prosecute this war on terror to a successful conclusion.

McCain got shot out of the sky: hero there. If it wasn’t for his father being an an almighty in the US Navy, he would have been killed just as quick as any other run-of-the-mill grunt or jarhead.

Churchill? Winnie told the Houseof Lords “will you pleeze just STFU.”

And Kemp has always been a dick… I can line up Wall Street boys who will back me on this.
