    George McGovern Is 'No Longer Responsive' In Hospice Care, Says Family

    The war mongering right hated him of course but he was one of the best. A man of integrity and honesty, a war hero and humanitarian. After Nixon beat him, I had a bumper sticker that read, "Don't blame me, I voted for McGovern".

    Our country would most certainly have fared better if he had won that election.

    Let the man pass in peace.

    If you want to bring politics into it, you're only going to get his name trashed and I'll be first in line.

    He served his country and did what he thought was right.

    We'll talk about what he actually did....some other time.

    Uh, perhaps you don't know that he was a US senator and ran for president more than once. And he did fight against the very war your current candidate, Willard the Rat, was in favor of.

    Among other things, George McGovern was a politician.

    Go shit someplace else.

    War mongering right? Gulf of Tonkin Resolution? Ring any bells, giving which president more war powers?

    All to aware of his record. I watched Nixon dismantle him in 72.

    McGovern was an outside who squandered his parties chances.

    While he looked every bit as foolish as he was, you knew he believed what he was saying.

    I gave him credit for that.

    Is this supposed to be "news"?

    Hasn't George McGovern been "unresponsive" since November of 1972?
