That Wesley Clark is on to something...

After a brief hiatus, I return.

Lot's of drama for your mama (see clips below) on this Wes Clark quote:

I don't think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.
But is he wrong? Vets--especially those injured, tortured, or captured during combat--deserve respect. But do these things qualify them to be the most powerful person on earth by default? I would say no.

Good test of character? You bet. Cajones of steel? No doubt. Qualified to be President based on that incident alone? Negative.

Here's the infotainment fall out:

Goddamn... 15 seconds of footage, DAYS of talking about it.

And Clark was SPOT ON. Unlike the Republicans who spent MONTHS belittling Kerry's service and Purple Heart, Clark didn't impugn McCain. He merely said it didn't automatically make him qualified to be President. And he was right.
