Thanks for the reminder post, Rick. I have nothing but respect for Admiral Stockdale and his sacrifice. I became a big Dennis Miller fan when I heard him say the following in 1993 or so:

"Now I know [Stockdale’s name has] become a buzzword in this culture for doddering old man, but let’s look at the record, folks. The guy was the first guy in and the last guy out of Vietnam, a war that many Americans, including our present president, did not want to dirty their hands with. The reason he had to turn his hearing aid on at that debate is because those f***ing animals knocked his eardrums out when he wouldn’t spill his guts. He teaches philosophy at Stanford University, he’s a brilliant, sensitive, courageous man. And yet he committed the one unpardonable sin in our culture: he was bad on television."

I remember in the VP debate when he opened with:"Who am I and why am I here?" It is too bad more of our politicians don't ask that question when they get up in the morning.
