Here's a great quote from an interview conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt (HH) with retired general William Odom (WO). Odom recently published an op-ed in The Washington Post advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
HH: Now General, you are a distinguished and long-serving member of the American military, in the Military Hall of Fame, you’re a Lt. General. I actually served alongside of you in the Reagan administration when you were running NSA. So I mean no disrespect by this next question.
WO: Yeah, you’re obviously going to call me a son of a bitch or something.
Awesome. Way to take the wind out the sails. You can read the whole interview here if you like.
