The predictably cantakerous Hall of Famer Bob Feller (above) calls Kenny Rogers a cheat, but saves his most harsh words for…the Bush Administration? From the New York Times’ Tyler Kepner (link swiped from Repoz and Baseball Think Factory) :

Feller has strong opinions about the war in Iraq, and he bemoaned what he called a lack of leadership.

œWe should have gone in there with 450,000 troops and declared a military dictatorship or martial law, have a curfew, taken over all the oil and given them the going price, same as we did with Japan when the war was over, and then given the country back to them when it was over, Feller said.

œIt would have been over years ago. The last good general we had, in my opinion, was Schwarzkopf, he said, referring to Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf. œWe haven™t had a lot of good leaders anywhere in our nation. I™m really concerned.
