Another Go With KO

No sooner do I suggest that KO has "jumped the shark," and needs a break so that he can jump back - then he comes bringing it tonight in a special comment.

It resonates for me because I have stood with the leaders of my denomination, you know the same one that Pres. Bush and Vice-Pres. Cheney presumably claim, and opposed this war in Iraq from the beginning with this article from March, 2003. Over five years on, too many families in distress from multiple tours - and most folks don't even know who, what or why we're fighting. Their sacrifice of noble service, as well as the thousands who have given the highest measure of devotion must have meaning - but perpetuity is not it - unless, of course, feeding the military industrial complex, is.

Our men and women's nobility of service cannot be dependant on the agendas of politicians. It is noble and they are heroic because they promised to serve, to do so with honor, and to go where sent and do so without question.

Somebody's obviously talked to KO, or maybe he's now listening to himself. Whichever is the case, it needed to happen. His last couple of comments about the President, those about Sen. Clinton, his pronouncements about Katie Couric showed signs of something other than who he was tonight. They seemed desperate and forced.

Tonight he had something to say. No rants, not forced - blistering in truth, and I was listening.
