You've seen the Iraqi “Deck of Death” playing cards. Now, we're raising the ante – with the Deck of Republican Chickenhawks, depicting the 54 Republican officials, congressmen, politicians and pundits who avoided serving their country through connections, deferments, or other excuses... "The United Republican Chickenhawks." What exactly is a "chickenhawk"? According to The New Hampshire Gazette, "a "chickenhawk" has three qualities: bellicosity (a warlike manner or temperament), public prominence, and a curious lack of wartime service when others their age had no trouble finding the fight. The fact that they're almost all Republicans is ... well, curious, don't you think?" Even though there are 54 cards, after reviewing them we think you'll agree none of them is really playing with a full deck! This hot new set of playing and informational cards – which will surely become a collector’s item – depicts the Republican Chickenhawks in a satirical way while revealing the evidence of their cowardice – avoiding serving their country during conflicts in which they could have enlisted! No doubt the Deck of Republican Chickenhawks will enrage those included – including Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, even "AWOL" Top Gun George W. Bush! You’ll laugh out loud looking at the faces of the world’s greatest chickenhawks – now dubbed "The Republican Chickenhawks Of America!" Under each photo is information on each Chickenhawk, from their excuses for avoiding military service, dossier of notoriety and mind-boggling quotes that distinguish their cowardice! Each Chickenhawk scammed their way out of Vietnam and other conflicts not because of noble ideals that the war was a misguided tragedy, but because they were just plain cowards looking to save their skins.
