Daily Kos :: Memo to chickenhawks: This is how it's done

Daily Kos :: Memo to chickenhawks: This is how it's done

Kos doesn't like war hawks who don't put their money where their mouth is. Kos himself served in the US Army in the late 1980s, and noticed that among the loudest right-wing war mongers, there were none who were willing themselves to enlist.

So Kos tells us about Colorado State Treasurer Mike Coffman, a Marine reservist, who is leaving his state post and going active for the next nine months or so in Iraq.

Cheers and best of luck to Major Mike Coffman, USMC.

I heard about that this week on the news here. Not a whole lot, but enough to give me a little more respect for our conservative administration here in CO. Not much, but a little.

I hope he comes home all in one piece, and shames the rest of the chickenhawks who couldn't be bothered to serve their country - but have no problem getting someone else to go.
