Please Help Us Build a New Chickenhawk Database

Thursday, May 14, 2009—You might think that after being shown to be dead wrong on an issue of the utmost national importance — and with the most tragic consequences — a reasonable person would say “I’m sorry,” and shut the hell up. Chickenhawks, though, are not, by nature, very reasonable.

The Bush administration is over, but not gone. And the notorious chickenhawks who provided cover for them by running their mouths on television still seem to be on the Rolodexes of the producers who run the talk shows. In fact, it almost seems like the Iraq War never happened. Unless, of course, you lost a husband, a wife, a child, an eye, a limb …

Which is why we found it so refreshing to view this clip, in which Jesse “The Governator” Ventura tells Larry King, “You give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I’ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.”

This intolerable situation has motivated us to — finally — begin rebuilding the Chickenhawk Database. If these yahoos will not shut up, we can at least expose them as the hypocritical cowards they are.

Nota Bene: We are not asking for individual chickenhawk nominations at this time. We have to build the database first.

We’re going to try to make the design process open. For starters, we are soliciting suggestions about categories of information.

So far, these are the fields we’re considering: Title [if applicable]; First Name; Last Name; Usual Occupation; Born [dd/mm/yy]; Home State; Conflict Avoided; Lame Excuse; Preferred Activity; Pro-War Evidence [quotes, votes, &c.]; and Photo.

Fair Warning: When and if we get operational, we’ll probably have to require potential nominators to register with a valid e-mail address for accountability.

You can check out John Hagee, a Trinity Univ (San Antonio) Graduate – 1966 or 67 who got a deferment for an unaccredited Bible Thumping College and then got married. He is the leading figure in the us that wants to bomb Al Oxa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

I tried to get him on the who served web site but he did not make it.
