Colin Powell on Bush's Service

While not speaking directly about his boss, Colin Powell had this to say about silver-spoon kids who weaseled their way into the National Guard:
"I am angry that so many of the sons of the powerful and well-placed... managed to wangle slots in Reserve and National Guard units...Of the many tragedies of Vietnam, this raw class discrimination strikes me as the most damaging to the ideal that all Americans are created equal and owe equal allegiance to their country." Via the ever-entertaining This Modern World.
Hey, he said it, don't go blaming me!
