The great satirist Barry Crimmins takes on hero worship, the jingoistic patriotism of the Bush Grindhouse and the Pat Tillman case, in his post "Support Our Dupes!".
Timely, with the the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform holding hearings today on The Tillman Fratricide, and none other than former former Secretary of War, Donald "You Go With The Cover-Up You Have, Not The Cover-Up You Wished You Had" Rumsfeld bellying up to the table.
With the war now being projected to cost over $1-Trillion, wonder what the DOD's breakdown is on CPH (Cost per Hero) and CPCO (Cost per Cover-Up)?
