I Can’t Stop Laughing Must Be Silly Season Once Again

Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark
I have to say, Barack Obama has not had any of those experiences either—Bob Scheiffer, To Face the Nation

I almost fell out of my seat laughing watching Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark’s assault on Sen. John McCain.

I thought what temerity and out right brazenness the Democrats have. They offered up two candidates in Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with absolutely no executive experience, with absolutely no military experience and now they want to attack a candidate that has that experience.

I’m still laughing at the look on Wesley Clark’s face when Bob Scheiffer interrupted him and said, “I have to say, Barack Obama has not had any of these experiences either”

And this is the funny part, in election 2004 it was all about who had the military experience Sen. Kerry even had home made videos as proof that he was in Vietnam commanding a little swiftboat. Interesting enough that was plenty of necessary experience for the Democrats then. Not to mention that according to Democrat’s President Bush’s military experience was fraudulent.

So now here’s Wesley Clark he can’t say that Sen. McCain didn’t actually fly combat missions in the war, and Clark can’t actually say that Sen. McCain didn’t actually have a large squadron Air command in the Navy but what he can say is what McCain did was not good enough for Democrats.

What Wesley Clark can say is that a two term Senate political neophyte with absolutely no credentials is better than any credentials that a Republican who has served in the Senate 21 years and has greater experience in politics, military and governess than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama combined.

Well its silly season and Democrats have started the season up by taking aim at Sen. McCain’s strongest attribute his distinguished military service.

When fellow Democrat and rival Sen. Clinton took aim at Senator Obama’s life style and education in the Democrat primary by calling him an elitist Sen. Obama took note,
“When somebody makes that argument, particularly given that I've spent my entire life working with workers in low-income communities to try to make people's lives a little bit better, that's when you know you're in political silly season, [t]his is what we do politically when we start getting behind in races, and we start going on the attack.”—Sen Barack Obama
I guess Silly Season was declared early by Sen. Obama’s camp on Sen. McCain via Obama supporter Wesley Clark particularly given that Sen. McCain spent so much of his life in service to his country in the military and as a private citizen.
