Richard Blumenthal's claim to have served in Vietnam has put a spotlight on politicians' discussions of their military service, and I'm pointed to a pretty dramatic boast from Rep. Mark Kirk, the U.S. Naval Reserve officer running for Senate in Illinois.
“In my role in the military, I command the war room in the Pentagon," Kirk told a gathering of experts on U.S.-Chinese relations last May (at 4:18 in the video above).
There seems to be an epidemic among Democrats of claiming bragging rights that they don't really have. We now have a Democratic candidate who, although he does have military intelligence experience, embellishes it by saying that he commands the war room at the Pentagon. LOL.
What will we have next? I know - A Democratic candidate who claims to have invented war? Actually, I am sure that, after November, there may be a Democrat or two who will take credit for Republcans beating them..... Nah - They will blame their loss on Republicans distorting their distortions. LMAO.

Seriously, though, I think he is about to start bragging that he defeated the Klingon Empire. :mrgreen:
