The ultimate sacrifice

The folks over at Americablog spotted this in the Boy King's comments to new congressional reps yesterday:

"I want to welcome you all here; Laura and I are so thrilled you're here. We want to welcome your spouses. I particularly want to say a thanks to your spouse for having supported your run for the Congress or the Senate. Laura and I know how hard it is on a family to be in the political arena. It's the ultimate sacrifice, really: sacrifice your privacy; it's a sacrifice of time with your kids. But you're going to find it's worthwhile -- serving this great country is an unbelievable honor, and both the elected official and the spouse are serving our great country." (emphasis added)

There you go. The Spoiled Brat in Chief and his cronies create a level of hell in Iraq that Dante couldn't wrap his brain around, sends our kids over to live in it without proper equipment or a plan, and his idea of the "ultimate sacrifice" is having to "sacrifice your privacy," by which he almost certainly means "give up the right to tell the little people to fuck off whenever you like."

Send this along to the friends or family of a service member and see how their views square with the Brat's.
