Max Cleland
I feel sorry for this guy. Not so much because he's wheelchair bound, which is difficult enough, but because he allows himself to be used so abominably. Whenever John Kerry wants to blunt any attacks against his military record, he says, "Hmm, what would Jenjis Khan do?" No, that's not right. He says, "Hey, we need to accuse Bush of attacking veterans, where's the crippled guy?" So they send Max Cleland out to proclaim how unfair it is, blah, blah, blah. Today they had him roll up to the front gate of Pres. Bush's Crawford ranch to deliver a message. Give me break. Shouldn't a former Senator at least have the dignity, the self-respect to place a phone call rather than show up like a door-to-door salesman?

Now, Rich Lowry tells me that Max has been collecting a $136,000 salary as a Bush appointee "to the board of directors of the Export-Import Bank"! As my buddy Rich says,
If Cleland had any decency, wouldn't he resign? Why would he accept a political appointment from a man he so loathes and thinks represents the very worst in American politics?
It's too bad a man who has lost so much physically, doesn't at least have his self-respect to hang on to.
