And You Support These Idiots?

Women On Front Of Bundy Standoff - The Latest From The Front - Esquire:

...Mack made the chilling revelation on Fox News' "The Real Story" Monday, two days after the tense standoff between Bundy and the federal government came to a peaceful end. "We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front," he said. "If they are going to start shooting, it's going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers."

Mack obviously was inspired by the hundreds accounts of how the Minutemen hid behind their wives' skirts on Lexington Green and Concord Bridge, and of how the ladies of the Old North Church were arrayed in battle lines up on top of Breed's Hill in Charlestown. And surely I can't be the only one who noticed that Mack's account is remarkable devoid of comment from the actual women he says he was going to use as human shields. I'm sure this is an oversight...

yeah but that still won't budge some people. i've been arguing with with people ever since this story (re)broke and some of them still believe this dickhead is some kind of american hero. it's frustrating.
