A Hero in His Own Mind

State Rep. Dave Cheatham (D-Ind.) was part of the team of  Democrats who fled the state to protest a Republican agenda they considered an assault on labor unions and public education.
This “representative” is now relating his walkout to a soldier’s service in Afghanistan (recounting a story his teacher wife heard from a student):  “Dad is getting sent to Afghanistan. He’s going to a country where people there are trying to take away the freedoms of other people there. So he’s leaving to do something good. A little girl said, it is kind of like Mr. Cheatham, he left to make our schools better.” And applause…
Yes, fleeing the state to stay in a hotel must be brutal with all that sand, extreme heat, inadequate facilities and occasional gunfire. Mr. Cheatham is an insult to our brave military personnel.

A fantasy this removed from reality is indicative of an unhinged mind, a severe psychological disorder.


yes and the liberals think that self inflicted wounds deserve a purple heart also (John Kerry).


I am thinking of a compound word right now.
The first part is chicken.
At least Cheatham has the right name for the job, as we used to have a congress critter here named Swindall.
He went to jail.
