That's "Ace" As In "Ace-Hole"


A friend of mine challenged me today thusly: "You always claim that you, as a South Park Republican, are violently opposed to crooked politicians wherever they are, but I haven't heard a peep out of you on either DeLay or Cunningham."

The jury's still out on DeLay (heh), so I'm withholding judgement on him for now. As far as Duke Cunningham, I'm reminded of a '70s SF novel called Galactic Medal of Honor. I don't remember the book real well, but I recall that the Medal was awarded for extraordinary service in the cause of humanity against the alien invaders, or some such. It was, literally, a 'Get Out Of Jail Free' card, since one of its many perks was that a GMH holder was immune from any laws. It looks to me like Duke Cunningham thought being a flying ace in the Vietnam War was the equivalent of winning the Galactic Medal of Honor.

So let me be clear: scumbags is scumbags, no matter what side of the aisle they're on or how many MiGs they shot down in 'Nam.



"...violently opposed to crooked politicians wherever they are..."

Redundant, isn't it?

Well, yeah. Usually I try to write more concisely than that.
