I hadn't heard this story about Jim Webb...

From a while back:

At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.

Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.

“I didn’t ask you that, I asked how he’s doing,” Bush retorted, according to the source.

Webb confessed that he was so angered by this that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief, reported the source, but of course didn’t.
Someone's gotta do it!

I'm all for the use of force in getting points across to the obstinant.

The more I see about Jim Webb, the better I like him.

Wow. I keep underestimating how big a douchebag George W. Bush is. Never thought I'd say that.
