A friend found out about Soldiers' Angels through you. That friend told a few friends. So I have three thank you's to make. Thanks to you. Thanks to my friend. And most especially, thanks to my adopted soldier (and a few hundred thousand more).

Ex-Soldier getting the warm and fuzzy treatment over at Kos? So, has this Jeff declared which heavily-democratic congressional district he'll be running for in '08 yet?

I heard a tape of a democrat congressman say... And that wasn't just any democrat, it was House Majority Whip James Clyburn, quoted in a recent Washington Post article. Opinions differ over which was the greater misstep: that the congressman said it or that the Post failed to realize they were printing such a potentially damning statement on how the Democratic leadership views the issue.

From the Washington Post, in an article: "Clyburn: Positive Report by Petraeus Could Split House Democrats on War" "Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly positive report on progress on Iraq by Army Gen. David Petraeus likely would split Democrats in the House and impede his party's efforts to press for a timetable to end the war." "But of late there have been signs that the commander of U.S. forces might be preparing something more generally positive. Clyburn said that would be 'a real big problem for us.'" I'm inclined to agree with Tom W.'s point that the MSM is trying to warn the Dems to be careful, there have been a lot of stories like this lately.

What happens? All the dems that were for deposing Saddam before they were against it will praise themselves for supporting the troops the whole time. And then they will praise the troops for succeeding despite being led by a chimpanzee (or whatever they're calling him these days) like Bush. And whichever of them gets the nomination just won't bring the subject up when they name one of the ones that was always against the war as their VP candidate, to reassure their base they really were against the war all along? Just a wild guess.

And journalists want extra protections for their 'profession' beyond what the First Amendment provides for every citizen? Go on, pull the other one.

“We have sunk to a depth in which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” - George Orwell Well, if it's gotten to that point, congratulations on spelling it out so well. It won't stop the people from willfully misinterpreting their history and civics lessons, but it can stop them from doing so here.
