In his column today (June 10) entitled “Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.”, Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It’s just more of Vignola’s signature ranting.
“American P.O.W.”?

How about “American deserter”?
If a soldier’s missing from his post, wasn’t captured in action, left a letter behind saying he was leaving, did so in a combat zone...... Well, he’s a damned deserter!

“... until we conduct a thorough investigation it would be living up to America’s noblest principles to give this P.O.W. the benefit of a doubt.”

Yeah, in order for society to impose a penalty, the “due process” of law must be rightfully observed. But that DOESN’T mean we should suspend our own powers of critical thinking in the meantime.

If I’m doing the speed limit on the freeway and someone zips past me at 30 MPH faster than I’m already doing, I think I can safely say he’s speeding, whether he ever gets a ticket for it or not.

Hey, Vignola, do you think OJ Simpson’s not a murderer?

He was never convicted of murder. But Ron and Nicole are still very dead, and SOMEONE did that.

Even MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had a meltdown over Obama’s reclaiming the deserter: (

Whoa! If Obama’s even lost Matthews, Obama’s biggest media sycophant, what’s next? They going to be handing out snowshoes in Hell?
