GORDON DUFF: AUGUST MUSINGS

AS I OFTEN SAY, “IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE NEWS, MAKE UP YOUR OWN….EVERYONE ELSE DOES”

As head of the editorial board of a military publication, sometimes it would be better if I stayed in bed. If you are a journalist and not entirely insane, which would make you a rarity, you check the morning output of others, I won’t call it news, I know better. All that’s out there is brazen lies, pretty-much anyway. Some gems do come in, this time from Jon Stewart ,his piece on the imaginary “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy. Thank you Jon Stewart. I have pride in one American this morning. The sad part, of course, is that Stewart’s excellent video deriding the phonies and bigots on this issue makes much of America appear unwholesome, dishonest and disgusting. We are talking about Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin aficionados. Give me an illegal alien anytime.

The next email is from editor Jeff Gates, sending me a photo of the USS John S. McCain, the new destroyer named after wartime collaborator Senator John S. McCain of Arizona. If you don’t know about John McCain’s dismal record as a POW or his disgusting life since returning from what he describes as “imprisonment” by North Vietnam, I suggest you look into it. Naming a ship after him should have been done well after we built the USS Benedict Arnold. However, as much as it irks Jeff, former Chief of Staff to Senator Russell Long, one of the great legislative powers of the last century, I still find McCain charming. Yes, he is a sociopath but so in Newt Gingrich. In fact, this is what Gingrich’s staff calls him, “our sociopath.” They think its funny.

I don’t.
