From the mouth of an Iraq veteran
A crosspost from ThePoliticalCarnival.
“Some guys (like Cheney, et. al.) can’t bear the thought of losing, so like gamblers they keep playing a losing game, telling themselves that if they stay in long enough they eventually get to ‘win.‘
I had this image of George W. Bush sitting at the slots with a bowl full of dog tags in his lap, shoving them into the machine one after another and pulling the lever, muttering, ‘If you don’t quit, you don’t lose.‘”
That pretty well sums it up for this Gold Star father.
