    The Left hates her and does every thing it can to besmirch her. So, here's a very complete article that sheds the light on who she is and what her status is.


    IMHO, we should have far more like her in Congress.

    Too bad the GOP's track record of disrespecting war veteran Senators is nothing to be proud of.

    Max Cleland - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

    A week before the voting an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll showed Cleland ahead by five points, 49-44. By Saturday before the race a poll by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the lead had shrunk to 48–45 which was within the poll's margin of error.[15] On election day Cleland lost to Chambliss 53-46. Some supporters blamed a Chambliss TV ad featuring the likenesses of Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein while criticizing Cleland's votes against homeland security measures.[16] Cleland supporters claimed the ad questioned the senator's patriotism,[17] while Chambliss supporters claimed it simply questioned his judgment.[17][18] The ad was removed after protests from prominent politicians, including Republicans such as John McCain and Chuck Hagel, both of whom are also veterans of the war in Vietnam.[19][20]

    Nobody I know of said anything about her military credentials.

    It's the fact she's batshit crazy that worries most of us.

    You clearly did not pay attention to the leftist rants and ravings when she campaigned. They could NOT get enough of trying to belittle her service and attacked her for NOT being a "combat veteran."

    Well, if I didn't notice it, then it must not have happened that much.

    Some supporters are idiots. I watched the actual ad, couldn't have been more tame.

    I don't even remember the guy, but if this ad was responsible for his loss, it was either very true, or the guy wasn't a very good candidate.

    The man gave 3 of his limbs for his nation and was in a wheelchair but the GOP decided that he was no different than Osama and Saddam.

    If you got that from that ad, you are beyond helping.


    Watch it again, this time using whatever reserve of critical comprehension skills you have left to muster.

    "I'd never seen anything like that ad," McCain said at the time of the spot, which was widely condemned by Democrats. Putting pictures of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden next to the picture of a man who left three limbs on the battlefield is "worse than disgraceful," said McCain. "It's reprehensible.”
