Hurricane Chickenhawks

Here’s an interesting theoretical question: if you believe people who advocate sending the troops to war in Iraq are “chickenhawks” for not going themselves, then aren’t you a hypocrite if you advocate using the military and national guard to rescue people from the aftermath of Katrina without going yourself?

Come to think of it, some of the people at FEMA are doing dirty and dangerous work too right now: so shouldn’t the people who were crying “chickenhawk” about the war at least be willing to put in a job application with FEMA before they criticize the job they’re doing?

You anti-war lefties: Before you try to come up with some twisted, convoluted explanation: just stop there and don’t embarrass yourself.
