A piece in today’s Best of the Web by James Taranto includes a comment from a member of the Utah National Guard. I include it here in its entirety.
The New York Times reports that Jeanine Pirro, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New York, has received an unlikely endorsement–and probably an unwelcome one:
Cindy Sheehan, who has crusaded nationally against the war in Iraq since her son was killed there, called on antiwar activists yesterday not to support Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is seeking re-election next year. “I believe that any candidate who supports the war should not receive our support,” Ms. Sheehan told The Associated Press in an interview. “It doesn’t matter if they’re Senator Clinton or whoever.”
Meanwhile, the Salt Lake Tribune has a wonderful quote from First Lt. Bruce Bishop, a 31-year-old fireman, who explains that he plans to re-enlist in the Utah National Guard “because as I look around at the state of this nation and see all of the weak little pampered candy-[posteriors] that are whining about this or protesting that, I’d be afraid to leave the fate of this nation entirely up to them.”
