My representative in Congress hates me and wants me dead.

Lovely.

The Raw Story A rational voice: Congressman unapologetic about comment that liberals should be Iraq human shields: Rep. Jim Gibbons (R-NV) is unapologetic for his recent salvo fired at “tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed” liberals who he suggested should be deployed as “human shields” in Iraq, Roll Call’s Mary Ann Akers will report Thursday, RAW STORY has learned.

“Gibbons issued a statement Wednesday defending, rather than apologizing for or clarifying, remarks he made at a Lincoln Day dinner in Elko, Nev,” Akers pens. “He said that as a Vietnam veteran who knows what it’s like to be ostracized by his own people, he was simply trying to defend and support U.S. troops ‘while the new generation of Jane Fondas — people like Michael Moore — deride their efforts.’”

Last Friday, Gibbons excoriated liberals and said it was “too damn bad” the U.S. didn’t buy liberals “a ticket” to become human shields for the “enemy” in Iraq.
