More Shameless Republicans 

Nothing new here, I suppose, but it seems that our esteemed Congresscritter, "Chickenhawk" George Nethercutt (R-WA), will be a featured guest at the Bastille Day celebration in Seattle this weekend:
From: Consul Seattle [mailto:consul@faccpnw.org]
Sent: Thursday, July 08, 2004 4:48 PM
To: Consul Seattle
Subject: Bastille Day July 11 Seattle Center


Opening ceremonies 11:30am
With Congressman Nethercutt
awarding medals to D-Day veterans

Besides ducking Vietnam service and minimizing "a couple of dead soldiers a day" in Iraq (remember the good old days of "only" 2 dead a day?), Nethercutt has sponsored legislation retaliating for France's refusal to enlist its sons to die for oil /Bush's re-election the "liberation" of Iraq. In return for this unflinching sense of duty and devotion to international comity, he gets to troll for Francophile and veteran votes, simultaneously!

Maybe it's just that wacky French sense of humor. Perhaps Jerry Lewis will show up with a nice, fat, cream pie?...

Nah. Who am I kidding? Being Republican means never being held accountable. For anything.
