So, Duh, reading more carefully, if Thom1s means "young and inexperienced," that's the phrase he should write instead of using a well-known pejorative for someone whose skin color is black.
And look up Kennedy's history: born 1917, served in both the House and the Senate. Became president when he was in his mid-40s. At that point he had far more war and political experience than the current occupant of the White House. So, if Thom1s really means "young and inexperienced" as you say, then both of you need to do more research.
I mean, duh, Duh. Are you a "boy"? Do you think you should be referred to as a "boy"? Or would you find that demeaning?
Macho talk about "boys" and "men" probably does not do much for making boys into men.
So, Bullshot Crummond you seem upset with Duh’s suggestion that you read more carefully. And in trying to justify your earlier signal, dig your hole even deeper:

>> Kennedy’s vaunted "war experience" came about because J. Edgar Hoover informed Bootlegger Daddy Joe that sonny BOY was bedding a Nazi spy there in the DC metropolitan area.

>> Daddy Joe had long term political ambitions he figured he could buy for his sons and so hastened to hustled sonny BOY out as far away from DC as possible to the furthest reaches of the Pacific war.

>> Whereupon sonny BOY in a night engagement with a larger, much slower, less maneuverable Japanese destroyer -- one in which sonny BOY enjoyed the advantages of speed, darkness, a low silhouette, and exceptional maneuverability -- managed to get his motor torpedo boat rammed and sunk by the destroyer ... perhaps a harbinger of the poor judgement he would later exhibit as our 35th president.

>> As for sonny BOY ’s so called "political experience", he like Obama managed to amass ZERO legislative accomplishments from the time he was first elected to the House until we made the mistake of electing this BOY -- REPEAT BOY -- president and sending him in to do MAN’s work.

If you are honestly intent on setting color aside instead of hiding behind race as some politically correct fig leaf then the term BOY can be applied to ANY MALE who does in fact conduct himself like an immature BOY. Obama is a gifted story teller with oodles of BOYISH charm. Is that sufficient qualification to become commander in chief at a time when this nation is in a hot war, a war that was launched against us because of ANOTHER lousy Democrat president, Slick Willie, who was grossly derelict in his duties by totally ignoring foreign policy -- who INVITED the attack of 9/11 with his pandering, gutless weakness?

No, I am not a "boy" and I WOULD feel demeaned if you referred to me as a "boy". I am a "girl".

THom1, actually I am above Coffee and McCain in my awareness of who I am. Neither is a "hero" just unfortunate human beings lost in an illusion.

That's what I've been telling people! The Clintons are scary. They'll stop at nothing to get what they want. So no VP for Hill.
