W: the true american hero

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 18:37

obviously George W knows the history behind cassius clay. W is being modest about the whole 'medal of honor' fiasco because he knows he was really a 'draft dodger', as well. W got away with it being prviledged and having strings pulled for him [oh yeah, he can't remember] and Clay used elijah mohammed [another winner] and his gang of goons to catch the wave started by MLK to draft dodge. *As Dan Pipes pointed out - Ali ditched the Islamic tenets as fast as he tried to learn what they were.

Are these the best characters America has to offer & receive medals? Not unless you're watching some surreal comedy. *Not that Kerry and the clowns around him would have been any better.

what's scary is this shows the repubicans around W are becoming as dim-witted as W is. Scandals are breaking out every day in their power vacumn and all they can do is put on shows/roasts and hope everyone stays are dumb as they are. It's sad really.
