A worthy cause for Congress

Here’s the mission:


Whether Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine, we all shared a common goal in Iraq: victory. As Republican candidates for Congress we share a vision for America’s future, her security, and that of future generations. We are unified in our commitment to relieve the Democrats of their command of Congress.

Voters want to restore leadership and honor back to Washington. Who better to accomplish that mission than our generation of warriors?

All veterans whose service to the United States brought them first to Iraq and now to a run for the House as pro-victory Republicans are welcome to become part of Iraq Veterans For Congress.

United we are capable of sending to Congress a squad-size element of Iraq vets to keep us on offense in the War on Terror and counter calls for defeat.

In short, unification of all Republican Iraq Veterans will be a powerful force multiplier. By joining forces we will generate crucial nationwide grassroots support while sharing ideas and strategies.

If you’re interested in making this a “mission accomplished,” go here and help out in the main way that counts: money, although your enthusiasm and moral support will undoubtedly count too, and count a lot.

There are a lot of vets to choose from — maybe some in your district. I, of course, am represented by Lynn Woolsey, whose only virtue is that she’s ineffectual.

  1. I sympathize with the cause and the action…but remember, Murtha is also a veteran. However, just as I’m of the opinion that McCain doesn’t “deserve” the presidency _solely_ on the basis that he was a Vietnam hero who survived POW torture untarnished, I also think that being an Iraq veteran _alone_ does not qualify a person for Congressional office.
    I like that we’re supporting their efforts – chances are that they _will_ be leaders, and should be. I just want to be sure that we want to go the direction they expect to lead us to…!

  2. I certainly agree that being a veteran alone is not enough. I’d prefer conservative vets to liberal vets. After all, Kos, of the Daily Kos, is a vet. However, I do believe that military service does tell us something about a candidate: in my mind, it establishes a baseline of bravery, competence and leadership experience. What the vets do with that bravery, competence and leadership experience is, of course, another thing altogether.

  3. Agreed. A competent criminal is still a criminal…!

  4. Congress isn’t interested in worthy causes, they’re too busy spending our money and time interviewing Roger Clemens and Andy Pettite, plus don’t forget it’s very important to find out of Jarvik used a rowing double for his Lipitor commercials.
