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.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).
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:
