John Glenn Goes Back Into Orbit

I admire the courage of astronaut John Glenn. He has led our great nation into space and slipped the bounds of Earth's atmosphere as he sped off intot he aether. Only this time, he neglected to suit up and travel on a rocket. John Glenn had this to say regarding the recent GOP convention.

Former senator John Glenn (D-Ohio) took the defense a step further by comparing the Republicans' misleading statements to those of Nazi Germany. "You've just got to separate out fact from fiction. . . . Too often, too often, in this country, if you hear something repeated, it's the old Hitler business -- if you hear something repeated, repeated, repeated, repeated, you start to believe it," he said.

Welcome to the alien terrain of MoveOn.Org, Senator. I hate to break this to you, Senator, but having experienced weightlessness does not lend gravitas to your nonsensical rantings. You are stupid, Senator. You are panicking. Do not be used by Senator John Kerry. Do not be turned into a cheap political symbol like your cohort Max Cleland.
