Operation Yellow Elephant has made it into the pages of the very French "Las Vegas Sun"

Despite an Internet effort to drum up opposition, several hundred of the nation's most ambitious young Republicans convened Thursday with little controversy. Activists of a loosely organized campaign called "Operation Yellow Elephant" had threatened to protest the Young Republican National Convention at Mandalay Bay this week.

They argue that Young Republicans who support the war in Iraq should enlist in the military, especially given recent lags in recruiting. Their motto: Sign up or shut up. It's always nice to see them fighting the war at home so they don't have to fight abroad.

A delegate from Florida, 27-year-old David Fletcher, said he participates in the Young Republicans because he thinks it's important for young people to get involved in politics. But while Fletcher said he fully supports the war in Iraq, he said he has not enlisted and doesn't have plans to enlist.

When asked why, he said, "I'd rather not answer that question."

It's always nice to see them fighting the war at home so they don't have to fight abroad.

We need to fight the war here because Young Republicans are unwilling to fight the war there.

I think you need an OYE Hall of Fame Gallery so we can honor the yellowist of the Yellow! I especially like the tales of Embezzlement from the Fearful, I mean Fearless leader of the Yellow Elephants!

I've made plenty of web-sized banners, skyscrapers, and buttons, all free to steal and post on your blogs, if you so choose.

Of course, my personal favorite is the round, animated GIF with Lifelike Elephant Peeing Action™!

Site looks great. I will be sure to add a link to my Intoxination blog. Just one suggestion. In the sidebar you need to add a paragraph between the logo and your about text as it is messing with the template amd causing the side bar to drop down below all the main posts.
Keep up the good work and I will be sure to check back often :D

Wait 'till I tell my bar friends that I "...have to go see a man about an elephant." Just wait.

We LGFers are fighting a war against the Moonbat Liberals here in the Homeland. This fight is every bit as dangerous and important as the glorious campaign to spread freedom in Iraq.

We stand shoulder to shoulder with the troops. They are as proud of us as we are of them.

Just a technical note: When I view the page with IE, the sidebar gets bumped down to the bottom of the page. I'm not yet proficient enough with template design to say why this is happening, but if you don't know how to correct it, I'm sure somebody could help.

What seems to be happening is that the image at the top of the sidebar is larger than the area reserved for it which is causing the text, which should be displayed below it, to be printed to the side of it; and for this reason the true width of the side bar is too large for the defined width of the page.

Does anyone know who was at the "Freedom Fighters" Panel discussion? Have not seen anything on that.

Thanks
