“In 1968, France was a dangerous place to be for a 21-year-old American, but Mitt Romney was right in the middle of it.”
Is there anything more revealing about the right wing than their double standard over Vietnam? For years and years, they harrangued the Democrats into a pile of quivering jello over their alleged lack of patriotic cojones for failing to serve in Vietnam. And yet once all their fortunate sons started running for office it stopped being relevant. This is what makes it so hard to respect so many of the most hardcore American conservatives -- their endless self-serving hypocrisy.
