Frank Lautenberg, Hero du Jour
(Yeah, it's French. Wanna make something of it?)
On the Senate floor he referred to Our Vice President as the "lead Chickenhawk." His remarks were accompanied by a nicely done sketch of said Chickenhawk. And just in case somebody missed the point, he defined the chickenhawk as "having the shriek of a hawk but the backbone of a chicken."
Nicely done. It's about time somebody got a backbone.
