Sigh. Chris Matthews just finished referencing an article he found in The New Republic (which I have been unable to find, possessing a weak Google-fu and all) that essentially makes the point that pro-war conservatives do not encourage their children to serve in Iraq. He read it like it was the first time anyone ever thought to make that point. Has he never heard of Operation Yellow Elephant? Or read any Liberal columnists or bloggers? Good Lord, man, many of us have believed from the jump that if this war is truly about protecting this country from terror, and preserving our whole way of life, why aren’t they pushing their children to go? Or, better, going themselves?
