Not so when neocons smell blood, their blood, possibly getting spilled.
Schmidt in war of words
"Three days after Rep. Jean Schmidt was booed off the House floor for saying that 'cowards cut and run, Marines never do,' the Ohioan she quoted disputed the comments.
Danny Bubp, a freshman state representative who is a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve, told The Enquirer that he never mentioned Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., by name when talking with Schmidt, and he would never call a fellow Marine a coward.
'The unfortunate thing about all of that is that her choice of words on the floor of the House - I don't know, she's a freshman, she had one minute.
'Unfortunately, they came out wrong,' said Bubp, R-West Union."
I don't think Bubp cared who Schmidt smeared, until he saw the beating she took as a result. Now he's throwing the gun in the nearest river.
