Apologies to those of you from San Francisco who AREN'T total liberal idiots (all two of you), but this just makes my blood boil:
"The USS Iowa joined in battles from World War II to Korea to the
Persian Gulf. It carried President Franklin Roosevelt home from the Teheran
conference of allied leaders, and four decades later, suffered one of the
nation's most deadly military accidents.
Veterans groups and history buffs
had hoped that tourists in San Francisco could walk the same teak decks where
sailors dodged Japanese machine-gun fire and fired 16-inch guns that helped win
battles across the South Pacific.
Instead, it appears that the retired
battleship is headed about 80 miles inland, to Stockton, a gritty agricultural

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a former San Francisco mayor,

2001 in hopes of making touristy Fisherman's Wharf its new home.

Yeah. That's liberalism for you. "You saved my ass and went through hell for me, securing the right for my pathetic whiny liberal views to be expressed no matter how stupid they are. You fought bled and died for me. But you know what? You don't like "Queer as Folk" so you're a bigot and you aren't welcome in my city. Trust us, we know better than you, you stupid redneck. You would see force as the solution to a violent militaristic expansionist regime that attacked us. Warmongerer."
Stupid liberal asses. Shut up and kiss the ass of a veteran, you bunch of ingrates.
Thanks to the Drudge Report, as always.
