Glad they nevergot to presidents
The U.S.S. Shitforbrains would be embarrasing
Like I said, keep bitching and moaning about the ships named after people you object to politically, and we'll stop naming ships at all. We'll simply call them by their alpha-numeric designations to avoid the whining and aggravation.
The aggravation comes when leftist hacks use their power to name ships after people who were diametrically opposed to everything that the service members fight for. Naming a ship after a corrupt congressman (Murtha was notorious for diverting tax dollars to his district for pointless projects) or a union hack may make liberals feel good, but that's the extent of it. Personally, I'd like to see the standard limited to Presidents, First Ladies, Flag Officers (generals or admirals), recipients of decorations for valor, or persons whose service to the United States is the equivalent thereof. Anybody who signed the Declaration of Independence, for example, or who died in the line of duty in peacetime, but wasn't eligible for a combat award, or spent their lives in service to the nation. Apply that criteria so that future idiots have less leeway to impose their fads on the services and we won't have to worry about having to serve on the USS Lady Gaga, or the USS Che Guevara.
I guess this means the USS Bin Laden is out????
