"One has to be a lowbrow, a bit of a murderer, to be a politician, ready and willing to see people sacrificed, slaughtered, for the sake of an idea, whether a good one or a bad one."
Henry Miller (1891–1980), U.S. author.
Only the second time in two years has President Bush publicly acknowledged the wounded soldiers from Iraq. Now that the election is over and Bush has nothing to lose, he visited the wounded at Washington's Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
On a similar visit in March, the president awarded Purple Hearts to eight soldiers. The Misanthrope would advise them not to run for president, otherwise they will be declared unpatriotic and cowardly.
