There are Chickenhawks, and then there are Chickenhawks. Saxby Chambliss is a Chickenhawk Supreme. He got himself elected to the Senate by casting aspersions on the patriotism of the incumbent, Democrat Max Cleland. Cleland lost three limbs serving his country in Vietnam. Saxby Chambliss was unable to serve because of his bad knees, but is somehow able to totter along as a recreational runner.
