Fighting Dems

Posted by on January 6 at 22:19 PM

Hey, Josh: Kos has written a lot about Iraq vets running for Congress—and all the Iraq vets running seem to be Dems. In fact, Kos’ regular posts about this subject are called “Fighting Dems.” Read all about ‘em here. It would be swell if we could find a local fighting Dem to run against Reichert. I’ll write the first check.

Ha! Annie says she's the squarest individual in the office, but look at me & you Dan: Slogging about the 8th District on a Friday night.

Well, I have an excuse—kid, home. Can't be out running around all night. Gotta... actually, I am square.

Gawd, you guys are square.

So Dan, there are two Iraq vets running as R, but I couldn't tell you who they are because I don't care. But memo to us: Being an Iraq vet doesn't make you a Congressman. I hope in all the pants-wetting excitement we remember to recruit GOOD candidates, not just candidates with a military resume.
