Fast History

Say what you will about Wikipedia, this was fast -- and accurate!

"Tancredo Walks Off MSNBC Set" - Friday, Nov. 6, 7:00 pm CDT:

As a Republican student activist, Tancredo spoke out in favor of the Vietnam War but did not serve. After graduating from college in June 1969, he became eligible to serve in Vietnam. Tancredo said he went for his physical, telling doctors he'd been treated for depression, and eventually got a deferment.

Wikipedia edit - Friday Nov. 6, 10:21 pm CDT:
On November 6, 2009 , Tancredo walked out in the middle of an interview on [[The Ed Show]] because he was called out by Daily Kos founder and US Army veteran Markos Moulitsas for avoiding service in Vietnam by obtaining a diagnosis of depression. Tancredo said he did not have to be insulted in that way but made no denial of Moulitsas' charge.
