Indy Fleebagger Likens Himself to Soldier Going to Afghanistan

Here’s Indiana Democrat State Rep Dave Cheatham, who, when the going got tough in his state, fled to an Illinois hotel for a few weeks, using what may or may not be an actual story to compare himself to troops headed to and fighting in Afghanistan. Shameless and pathetic on so many levels it’s impossible to list them all.

Here’s the You Tube description:

69th District Democrat Dave Cheatham equated his walkout from the Indiana General Assembly to a serviceman leaving the country for service in Afghanistan in a townhall meeting in Madison, Indiana on March 26. The applause was from union teachers.

The similarities are indeed uncanny. Just for starters…

Troops in Afghanistan:

The Marines in Garmsir spend a lot of time talking about the heat. A thermometer flat-lined one particular day, when temperatures reached 135 degrees Fahrenheit in the sun.

“It’s even too hot at night for the mosquitoes,” says one Marine.

They live in crude mud-wall compounds. There are no sewage system, no telephones, no electricity — these young men have been sleeping in the dirt for weeks.

Indiana Fleebagger:

The Democrats wouldn’t speculate on how long they’d stay in Urbana. But if a person had to stay indefinitely in Urbana, the Comfort Suites would not be a bad place.

The hotel has a fitness room (the TV was turned to “I Love Lucy”), an indoor swimming pool (“maximum bather load: 50”) and a hot tub (“maximum bather load: 6”). The Democrats had not yet taken advantage of the amenities, according to hotel staff, fellow guests and the Democrats themselves.

I heard that Cheatham tweaked his back when picking up a tray carrying his room service lunch order, so I imagine a Purple Heart might be in order too.
