“The decision to go to war should be a simple decision. It should be based on whether or not a President is willing to send his own son to war. If he isn’t, how can he send the sons of others?” — former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura, speaking on CNN within the last 24 hours. The thinking here is too simplistic to be called truly wise or perceptive, but I respect it. You can’t be too thread-county in your moral-political evaluations. You have to be willing to listen to Jesse Ventura-type guys, and give them their just due.
