"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Jim Webb and His October Surprise

Payback isn't usually flattering but when the facts are in writing it's difficult to hide from the truth. Jim Webb, Democrats candidate to unseat Republican George Allen in Virginia, has gotten his October surprise.
Drudge reports on a late Thursday press release exposing Webb's fictional writing in books authored by Webb and for his reaction to the Navy's Tailhook Association scandal, in which women were assaulted at a Las Vegas convention in 1991.
– Lost Soldiers: “A shirtless man walked toward them along a mud pathway. His muscles were young and hard, but his face was devastated with wrinkles. His eyes were so red that they appeared to be burned by fire. A naked boy ran happily toward him from a little plot of dirt. The man grabbed his young son in his arms, turned him upside down, and put the boy’s penis in his mouth.”
– Something to Die For: "Fogarty . . . watch[ed] a naked young stripper do the splits over a banana. She stood back up, her face smiling proudly and her round breasts glistening from a spotlight in the dim bar, and left the banana on the bar, cut in four equal sections by the muscles of her vagina."
– A Country Such as This: "[He] could see Jawbone and Ashley Asthmatic [two guards at a Vietnamese prison camp] napping together in the grass. They faced inward, their arms entwined. It looked like they were masturbating each other. It didn't surprise him. … It was common to see men holding hands, embracing, playing with each other. Some of them [the guards] had wanted him. He could tell in those evanescent moments between his bao cao bow, the obligatory deference when a guard entered his cell, and the first word or blow that followed it… Quick, grinding voices, turgid with repressed passion. An exploratory reaching of the hand near his groin…”
A 1979 article Webb wrote in Washingtonian magazine called "Women Can't Fight." Webb said women are unfit to lead male troops. He said their presence at the academy had spawned promiscuity and turned a dormitory with 4,000 men and 300 women into "a horny woman's dream."
A 1992 New York Times article in which Webb said, "A botched internal investigation and the ongoing revelations of inexcusable harassment of women . . . have also left in their wake a witch hunt that threatens to swamp the entire naval service."
The "Tailhook debacle has been seized upon and used by feminists to attack the military culture and bring about major concessions."
The Webb campaign is out doing damage control but how do you keep the truth out of the public eye. Webb, who served as President Ronald Reagan's Navy secretary, is being insincere now by seeming to repent on his essays. As an author he displays his continued sexist attitude and demeaning of women.

The book is based on actual experiences in Vietnam (not surprising Allen does not get that). It is not fantasy. Fellow vet an 2008 republican presidential candidate John McCain has praised the content of the book.

We don't support McCain either.

For the books, they are fiction, so the content is contrived from the mind, and imagination, of the author.

You claim, "actual experiences" but the books are, in fact, listed as fiction and noted in that fashion by the Webb campaign.

"Liberally Conservative": You're an idiot and IGNORANT to boot ... any high school student should know that the best fiction is based on the writer's knowledge -either experienced or researched- of his subject ... Jim Webb earned his stripes ... what the hell has allen and the rebubbacan neocon, amerikan taliban done

Oldlemming can't spell either. Only vitriol, always hate mongering their way into a discussion. Fiction is now fact?

lem‧ming  [lem-ing]

Any of various small, mouselike rodents of the genera Lemmus, Myopus, and Dicrostonyx, of far northern regions, as L. lemmus, of Norway, Sweden, etc., noted for periodic mass migrations that sometimes result in mass drownings.

Mouselike indeed! Hmmm…..Mass drowning for Liberals seems like a prudent course.

Addendum to Lemming definition:

The act of following the crowd into an investment that will inevitably head for disaster.

Left-wings nuts do follow each other lookin for a leader. Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, Harry Reid.

All a disaster waiting to happen.

When it comes to using the "n" word in Webb's novels, he and his companions claim it is just fiction. When he writes about weird sex he claims it is based on war time experiences.
I'm not buying it.
