Did this article come from the same set that praised George McGovern so highly? Heroism in war does not mean heroism in life. Inouye was a Democrat. He supported Democrat causes and did everything he could to dismantle America's traditions. He also held onto his Senate seat for far too long--FIFTY YEARS. I'm tired of hearing about what great guys people like Inouye and McGovern were. They were not great guys. They were misguided, misinformed traitors.
