Not a bad idea

Gene Lyons:

These lofty sentiments are made more acceptable because, apart from the uniformed military, nobody’s sacrificing a damn thing. (I’m a fan of "Operation Yellow Elephant," a tongue-in-cheek effort to get Young Republicans to enlist. Maybe they should try some Democratic Leadership Council keyboard warriors, too


Thanks to Sally Jo for the tip.

He does have a point, it wouldn't do any harm to write to some democratic warmongers, too.

Stefan-

I've already encouraged under-42 House Democrats to call the Republicans' bluff by resigning their seats and enlisting.

So far, no takers.

But let's face it: Last November, our country had an election, and one party won the Presidency and kept control of both Houses of Congress.

With national office comes leadership responsibility.

That's why Operation Yellow Elephant is asking the current and future leadership of our governing party to set an example.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS ALL ABOUT REPUBLICANS JUST BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS SUPPORTED THE WAR TOO DOESNT MEAN THEY HAVE TO SIGN UP BECAUSE THEY ARE DEMOCRATS AND DONT HAVE TO AND A DRAFT DODGER IS THE LAST LEADER OF THE PARTY BUT THAT IS OK BECAUSE HE DIDNT WANT TO GO KILL BROWN POEPLE

"After you."
"No, no, after you, I insist."
"Please, after you."
"Indubitibly."
