True American Hero!
Mahalo Senator.

Oh hell! Go in peace you good honest man! Thank you for your service.
 
2012-12-17 06:12:51 PM
Well, damnit. A sad day indeed. Thank you sir, and Godspeed.
 
2012-12-17 06:14:44 PM
He was kinda crazy. But, only in that special way a WWII MOH recipient can be... A great kind of crazy. True American.

Fair winds and following seas, Sir.

No one is going to top Senator Hardcore "pulled a live grenade out of his mangled arm and threw it at the goddamn Fascists" Bad-Ass anytime soon.
 
2012-12-17 08:18:40 PM
Just to be contrarian... meh.

//but really, this guy is awesome.

Why would you say hello to him, subby? ARE YOU DEAD?

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Why would you say hello to him, subby? ARE YOU DEAD?


You should see 50 First Dates. Then you'd petition the White House to get Obama's Time Machine to undo your post.
 
2012-12-17 08:22:03 PM
Dammit. Why do we have to lose the good ones?

Why isn't this on the front page, moddy? This guy deserves more than the politics tab.

Don't worry, as X approaches infinity, we will lose the shiatty ones too.

Go with God, Senator. I think there are some men waiting to toast you on the other side.
 
2012-12-17 08:23:49 PM
Awww, fark around
 
2012-12-17 08:24:23 PM
Sad. What a brave man he was. Good night, sir. You will be missed!

As his squad distracted the third machine gunner, Inouye crawled toward the final bunker, eventually drawing within 10 yards. As he raised himself up and cocked his arm to throw his last grenade into the fighting position, a German inside fired a rifle grenade that struck him on the right elbow, severing most of his arm and leaving his own primed grenade reflexively "clenched in a fist that suddenly didn't belong to me anymore". Inouye's horrified soldiers moved to his aid, but he shouted for them to keep back out of fear his severed fist would involuntarily relax and drop the grenade. As the German inside the bunker reloaded his rifle, Inouye pried the live grenade from his useless right hand and transferred it to his left. As the German aimed his rifle to finish him off, Inouye tossed the grenade off-hand into the bunker and destroyed it. He stumbled to his feet and continued forward, silencing the last German resistance with a one-handed burst from his Thompson before being wounded in the leg and tumbling unconscious to the bottom of the ridge. When he awoke to see the concerned men of his platoon hovering over him, his only comment before being carried away was to gruffly order them to return to their positions, since, as he pointed out, "nobody called off the war!"

Aloha . . . and mahalo.

Rest in peace good man. I wrote him a letter after learning his story right here, and his classy yet to the point response to some dickhead lawmaker from Indiana. Balls. Of. IRON.

Richard Kimball gets his revenge

From a different article:

Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, the country's longest-serving senator

Not to pick nits, but doesn't Robert Byrd have him beat for that record?

It was a joke, the word of course means both.

I don't watch shiatty movies. Well I did once but I was so angry that the movie didn't survive the experience.
 
2012-12-17 08:29:20 PM
Salute & mahalo, Senator - Go For Broke!
 
2012-12-17 08:29:41 PM

Choestoe: Dammit. Why do we have to lose the good ones?


We notice when we lose the good ones because it sucks that they're gone.

The most notice people generally make when a well-known raging asshole dies is to think "good riddance" or perhaps mutter it under their breath.

Saying X.

Proving X is false.

(once presented with the falsehood that is X...) Of course I didn't mean X, I was joking.

Guffaw... guffaw... guffaw, bro!

Aloha and much Mahalo Senator Inouye. I had the pleasure of meeting you and voting for a real American hero who loved his country and Hawai'i.

Rest in Peace

Irony: Stevens and Inouye were best-friends.

They're going to need two caskets. One for him, and the other for his giant brass balls.

His last word was "Aloha" too.
 
2012-12-17 08:42:10 PM
I'll have to admit, I didn't know much about him before today other than he was that "Long time older senator for forever from Hawaii".

Good article, and a good man.
 
2012-12-17 08:43:18 PM
Well, that was a hell of a run and he gave America everything he had. Let's not be sad, but thankful.
 
2012-12-17 08:46:19 PM
Go for broke good sir.
