Quit Your Whining...!
Webb is not your typical focus group politician; he says what he means and means what he says.
Every Virginian is going to find out that Jim Webb is a Vietnam War hero and former secretary of state under Ronald Reagan, no matter how much George Allen, GOP leadership, Nancy Reagan or anybody else whines about it.
Those words by former President Ronald Reagan were spoken to Jim Webb and belong to him just as much as they do to his wife.
Get use to Jim Webb; you're talking about a guy who grabbed the gun out of the hands of the enemy, you think he cares about your fake crocodile outrage?
Just read what his citation for the Navy Cross reads:
Hate to keep repeating myself, but SHOVE IT!
The Navy Cross is presented to James H. Webb, Jr., First Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps, for extraordinary heroism while serving as a Platoon Commander with Company D, First Battalion, Fifth Marines, First Marine Division (Reinforced), Fleet Marine Force, in connection with combat operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On 10 July 1969, while participating in a company-sized search and destroy operation deep in hostile territory, First Lieutenant Webb's platoon discovered a well-camouflaged bunker complex which appeared to be unoccupied. Deploying his men into defensive positions, First Lieutenant Webb was advancing to the first bunker when three enemy soldiers armed with hand grenades jumped out. Reacting instantly, he grabbed the closest man and, brandishing his .45 caliber pistol at the others, apprehended all three of the soldiers. Accompanied by one of his men, he then approached the second bunker and called for the enemy to surrender. When the hostile soldiers failed to answer him and threw a grenade which detonated dangerously close to him, First Lieutenant Webb detonated a claymore mine in the bunker aperture, accounting for two enemy casualties and disclosing the entrance to a tunnel. Despite the smoke and debris from the explosion and the possibility of enemy soldiers hiding in the tunnel, he then conducted a thorough search which yielded several items of equipment and numerous documents containing valuable intelligence data. Continuing the assault, he approached a third bunker and was preparing to fire into it when the enemy threw another grenade. Observing the grenade land dangerously close to his companion, First Lieutenant Webb simultaneously fired his weapon at the enemy, pushed the Marine away from the grenade, and shielded him from the explosion with his own body. Although sustaining painful fragmentation wounds from the explosion, he managed to throw a grenade into the aperture and completely destroy the remaining bunker. By his courage, aggressive leadership, and selfless devotion to duty, First Lieutenant Webb upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.
I can see Allen galloping his horse into the sunset on this one. He showed us his bravery when he cut and run (cancelled his day's appearances to avoid being called on the macaca comment by Virginia citizens.)
OF course Webb is going to show the ad. LOL...

The fact he’s running against George Allen, a self-declared friend of the Israeli pharisaic far-right and a staunch supporter of President Bush’s neo-colonial wars in the Middle-East and South Asia can only endear him to me!
Over the past decade, the White House, the Pentagon and Congress have become mere Israeli-occupied Bantustans…
Clearly, it’s high time we “got our country back [on track]”.
Can you send me the codes to the icon with the link to Jim Webb's site?
My computer crashed before I could even edit the few mistakes on this post.
Here's the addresss for Jim Webb's Web site.
Also, you could click on the Jim Webb icon on the right.)
But I think I still need the html "codes" (a series of Byzantine symbols to me...) to put the icon on my blog.
Anyone can help??
Send me your e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll send it tomorrow. Like I said, my computer crashed and I'm blogging out of a frigging library!
