Billary tries to lift troop morale....

I cannot verify this is true, it was sent to me in an email. But like the saying goes, if the shoe fits, wear it:



Bagram GI: Troops Waited While Hillary Chowed Down

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton forced U.S. troops stationed at Bagram Air
Base in Afghanistan to wait for their Thanksgiving dinner last Thursday
while she and her entourage arrived late, then cut in line and were
served first.

A soldier who witnessed the scene tells.

"Thanksgiving Dinner started at 3 p.m. that day, so the line was
forming around 2:30 p.m. She didn't show up until around 3:30 p.m.

"Once she got there," our source maintains, "Clinton and her entourage
bumped everyone in line, forcing them to wait almost an extra hour."

The brass at Bagram apparently had a hard time rounding up New Yorkers
who wanted to have dinner with Clinton, D-N.Y. Only six GIs responded
to an e-mail sent out last week that stated, "Looking for military
members from New York and Rhode Island interested in meeting their
Senator/Congressman."

People magazine was on hand to cover the event and wanted to interview
the troops for reaction to Clinton's visit.

"But they were getting declined left and right," our source said.
"People were actually telling the reporters, 'You don't want to print
what I think about her and her visit.'"

After Clinton and her entourage departed, the only topics GIs wanted to
talk about were "how great the food was and how fantastic they thought
George Bush's visit to Iraq was."

"I have taken more out of alcohol than it has taken out of me."

"If not, by age 20, you are a liberal, then you have no heart. If not, by age 30, you are a conservative, then you have no brain.

It's funny how you can slant things one way or another.

The paper also published a letter to the editor from Sgt. Loren Russell, who wrote of the heroism of his soldiers and then added: "[I]magine their dismay when they walked 15 minutes to the Bob Hope Dining Facility, only to find that they were turned away from their evening meal because they were in the wrong unit. . . .

Damndest thing I've ever seen...these guys are as pumped up as Hussein's "Republican Army"! Wouldn't it be nice if bashing a Clinton would improve the economy?!
But now that we've captured whatshisname, things should start improving here in America, real soon, right?

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!
