John Glenn, American Hero.
Former senator John Glenn (D-Ohio) took the defense a step futher by comparing the Republicans' misleading statements to those of Nazi Germany. "You've just got to separate out fact from fiction. . . . Too often, too often, in this country, if you hear something repeated, it's the old Hitler business -- if you hear something repeated, repeated, repeated, repeated, you start to believe it," he said.
Former United States Senator and astronaut John Glenn*
I used to work for an astronaut; he was the CEO of my old company. Before his contracting days he was a mission payload specialist on a Space Shuttle flight. Grade-A nutjob, he was. We all used to say he went up into space, but he never came back down.
Ladies and gentleman, with that above quote John Glenn makes me wonder if he ever came back down.
*Yes, I know, that's not John Glenn, but actor Ed Harris. But to my generation, Ed Harris *is* John Glenn, just as Scott Baio *is* Charles in Charge.
