U.S. General Colin Powell
General Powell, This was your opportunity. After years of pandering to the right, this was your opportunity to show yourself to be the true American patriot that we always suspected you were.
Yea, you lied, lied like a desperate republican lackey before the United Nations about "yellow cake" uranium, which was probably your lowest hour, but even then you tossed in the towel and resigned. No, some of us will never forget that you lied hundreds of times in the lead-up to the Iraq fiasco, but we've always had some glimmer of hope when we watched you General Powell. Hope that you would be the guy who would step up to the plate and do the right thing.
But oh those military protocols and codes of honor. They have kept you at bay from opening up and spilling the beans on so many issues and entities. I guess I can forgive you on some level for being loyal to the commander and chief, but you were so complicit.
Today you had the opportunity to stand up and do what was right and endorse the best candidate for president of the United States we've seen in decades.
Thank you General Powell. You finally came through. You've done what was right and added your support to this noble cause. You are a decent man and one of the few to emerge in the past 20 years from the right.
