Chuck Hagel (R-NE) Lets It Rip

Pimpin' Raw:
"The Iraq war should not be debated in the United States on a partisan political platform," the Nebraska senator remarked. "This debases our country, trivializes the seriousness of war and cheapens the service and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. War is not a Republican or Democrat issue. The casualties of war are from both parties. The Bush Administration must understand that each American has a right to question our policies in Iraq and should not be demonized for disagreeing with them. Suggesting that to challenge or criticize policy is undermining and hurting our troops is not democracy nor what this country has stood for, for over 200 years. The Democrats have an obligation to challenge in a serious and responsible manner, offering solutions and alternatives to the Administration’s policies."

Chuck uses the "V" word:
"Vietnam was a national tragedy partly because Members of Congress failed their country, remained silent and lacked the courage to challenge the Administrations in power until it was too late," he added. "Some of us who went through that nightmare have an obligation to the 58,000 Americans who died in Vietnam to not let that happen again. To question your government is not unpatriotic – to not question your government is unpatriotic. America owes its men and women in uniform a policy worthy of their sacrifices."

Take that Commander Codpiece.

I was pretty impressed with the entire speech. Hagel's my kind of Republican.

Developed by the Sellar Property Group who are currently leading the rising Shard, they are designed by Tate Modern architects Herzog + de Meuron as a visually complimentary piece to what will be London's first supertall tower with glistening glass facades wrapping the slender geometric shapes. They are, in effect, slivers of glass tapering sharply at their peaks.
