Philly VA training slides depicted veterans as ‘Oscar the Grouch’

The beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs depicted dissatisfied veterans as Oscar the Grouch in a recent internal training guide, and some vets and VA staffers said Tuesday that they feel trashed.

The cranky Sesame Street character who lives in a garbage can was used in reference to veterans who will attend town-hall events Wednesday in Philadelphia.

"There is no time or place to make light of the current crisis that the VA is in," said Joe Davis, a national spokesman for the VFW. "And especially to insult the VA's primary customer."

The 18-page slide show on how to help veterans with their claims, presented to VA employees Friday and obtained by The Inquirer, also says veterans might be demanding and unrealistic and tells VA staffers to apologize for the "perception" of the agency.

Now who was the Mensa Member that thought this shit up and said "yeah, that'd be a great fucking idea Bob, let's do it"?

Let me guess, some newly hired cutting edge program director fresh out of a communism indoctrination college with the ink still dripping off his fucking MBA?

Trust me, we're aren't fond of your bullshit either VA.
