Quote from Pat Tillman's brother (killed by friendly fire) speaks for itself:

"Somehow, the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country. Somehow, this is tolerated. Somehow, nobody is accountable for this."

And now our nation needs a hero. We need an unspun, homespun, downhome, eloquent, brilliant, power-averse, leader. But then General Washington and Abraham Lincoln are dead. Whatever will we do...
