    Hmmmm.......let's see.............Libwingers keep telling us the when an illegal steps foot in this country all our laws and the Constitution apples to them.

    Or, how about this........

    If he was to rape or murder someone while in the country would our laws apply to him?

    You take it from there, sport.

    Thanks from Macduff

    I'm a Navy vet, not impressed with what he did, even if it was Palin. No call for it, Cohen is a smart guy he could have thought of something else,

    Now, may this be as it is, what you say about other ways to prank people... does not even remotely compare to the then applying and now sitting president dissing real war heroes, make pretend fund raisers for veterans, without intending to actually give the raised money to those veterans, until called out publicly on his shady behavior.... etc.
    Etc.
    Etc.

    Your one sided outrage is - yet again - we’ll noted. And because of the bias, meaningless.
    I don't know if you don't read well or if you are purposely being obtuse. I specifically stated that this is not a partisan issue. It's an asshole issue. People that take Stolen Valor actions like Cohen are assholes. Find another way to prank the Palin.

    ... and Like me, most Americans did not serve. But, we should honor those that put their lives on the line for our freedom.
    Thanks from HCProf

    Thanks for your service. That is sincere.

    As I thought, this is not a partisan issue. This is a some people are assholes issue. Cohen is an asshole.

    Most Americans hold military service in high regard, especially combat vets. We have three national holidays honoring veterans.
    Stolen Valor a reference to a book by the same name which documented cases of men who lied about serving in Vietnam. It takes two forms: men who never served in the military claiming they did or men who did serve but dishonestly exaggerate their service. We don't like people lying to claim the respect due to the troops for the physical and emotional sacrifices they made.

    I am guessing him being a Brit, they may not have the same reverence for those that serve as us "Yanks". Maybe the jackass just didn't know better? But damn, but how could you not know to leave another nation's military veterans out of your joke?
    Can you squeeze out another tear for me, please? It will go a long way toward proving your genuine outrage.
