In spite of the shameless and disgusting political pandering involved here, I suppose I ought to refrain from making a graphic comparison between this ship and the U.S.S. Cole.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

She was shot in the head and survived. That makes her courageous? I'm sure a few thousand other shot-in-the-head-and-survived folks are wondering why they're so ignored - especially those who were wounded in military service.

One wag has already asked if the ship will be armed.

I see it's an LCS. Maybe they can name one of the copters after her husband. He was an astronaut, you know.  :whistle:

So incredibly sad for our sailors, SEALs, naval and marine aviators.  Makes me want to cry in shame for those who died unremembered.

The DEAD Navy Seal is Texas would have been a much more appropriate person to name a ship after.
