You need the training.
Reason #3697 why Young Republicans need to join the military: you need the training. Look, you're getting your asses kicked by a bunch of patchouli-scented anarchists. You really need some Basic Combat Training.
Lowering the discourse at the top of their lungs

The Young Republicans of Allegheny County notified the media a day in advance. They were staging a lighthearted protest to egg on Howard Dean outside the Democratic Party fund-raiser at the Church Brew Works in Lawrenceville last night.
Once the TV cameras were rolling, however, the Republicans' competitive "Scream Off" -- to spoof Dean's infamous yowl after last year's Iowa caucuses -- got upstaged by a group of not-so-funny anarchists, who ripped up their placards and tried to outscream the GOP screamers.
Yeeaaargh! I'm making an ass out of myself and my party while other people are dying in Iraq!
A Duquesne University student named Dan, holding a poster that said "I [love] the GOP," stepped up to resume the contest. "Howard Dean is gay," he said, and was immediately surrounded and lectured by the anarchists.
Jeez. How could you guys allow this to go on? Better join up now so you can take on those damn hippies.
