Band of brothers—and sisters

Why doesn't the supposedly liberal mainstream media take account of this interesting bit of news? There are 55 Democrats, all of whom are veterans, running for Congress, from districts in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennesse, Texas (7) and Virginia.

This must be disturbing to the chickenhawks who have been so happy to send our children off to their senseless war while their kids party in discos. The Bushco gang and their Swift Boat lackeys must be working feverishly on ways to tarnish the reputations of these 55 brave men and women. Otherwise, this thing might gain some traction.

That's assuming Bushco even really cares about winning the upcoming elections. I'm reading blogs by people suggesting that there was effectively a stealth coup d'état in 2000. All that it will take is another 9/11 and Bushco will implement plans (already known to have been discussed) to “suspend” elections. Now they have Alito and Roberts in place, the Supreme Court will rubber-stamp the whole thing if it becomes “necessary.”

Okay, enough paranoia. We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

hi michael,

just a short comment here. i totally respect the views that i've read on your site so far. i don't necessarily agree with them all of course.

regarding your comment about chickenhawks 'sending' kids off to war: those 'kids' are adults, even if they are your sons and daughters. adults who have made a decision to join the armed forces. i'm sure everyone in the military right now was very aware of the actions our government is taking.

i think we should all respect them as free thinking and couragous adults, not children being led to slaughter
