But at least he's no "chickenhawk", right?

One of the lamest and easily dismissable arguments thrown out by liberals is the "chickenhawk" fallacy, whereby liberals finally come up with a use for our military: using them to try to silence opponents.

Since libs have no use for our military and its trivial tasks like defending their right to be stupid and speak stupidly, they say that you can't support our troops and their mission unless you serve in the military. However, they do not seem to have a problem with non-military personnel insulting the military. But I digress...

Well, enter Lt. Col. Alexis Fecteau. Via Michelle:
The Air Force Reserve plans to discharge a lieutenant colonel accused of defacing cars that had pro-Bush bumper stickers, the military said Friday. Lt. Col. Alexis Fecteau, a pilot with 500 combat hours in the first Persian Gulf war and the Balkans, is charged with criminal mischief for allegedly using paint stripper to write a profanity about Bush in 18-inch-high letters on cars at Denver International Airport.

The cars had bumper stickers supporting President Bush and conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.


Fecteau is charged with 13 counts of criminal mischief, five of them felonies because the damage to five vehicles was estimated at more than $500 each.
I'm guessing that liberals will argue that since he actually served in the military, he has a right to commit criminal acts of vandalism...right?
