--The Toady Awards

You have done enough.
Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last?
Have you left no sense of decency?
--Joseph  N. Welch,  McCarthy Hearings

Surely there must be a special rung in purgatory for those politicoes who shuttled off any cape of honor or shame in order to extend the longevity of their political lives. At least, a recognition of some kind.

Just as there are the Emmy's and Tony's, there should be an award for the best performance by political toady, so RangerAgainstWar presents: The Toadies.

Colin Powell's 2003 performance at the United Nations Security Counsel arguing for the existence of the non-extant Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) was a classic; he shall be the inaugural member of the club of men of little decency or integrity -- the water boys of the Great Men. The grade school props of the drawings on the easel with the little Photoshopped arrows of mobile chemical units touring the countryside made it that much more heartbreaking of a job.

Now John Kerry is implicating Russian President Putin for behaving like George W. Bush, except he is being less-than forthright about the analogy. Mr. Kerry has fallen from being a man of principle (read his Winter Soldier testimony) to a toady; we nominate him as the newest recipient of the award.

Who would you nominate for The Toadies? What action would earn the nominee this award?

Nominations are hereby open.
