Polk County, Georgia: Real Republican Americans
Operation Yellow Elephant salutes Polk County, Georgia, whose residents, according to the Washington Post, actually have sons and daughters, relatives and neighbors serving in Iraq. Their Congressional District in northwest Georgia is "strongly Republican;" former First Lady Barbara Bush helped out Rep. Phil Gingrey (R, of course) during his campaign. And they're concerned about the lack of progress in Iraq.
According to Carl Forti, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, however, "National security is not something you run TV ads on in a House race."
So, Mr. Forti, what are you going to do? Your biography indicates you appear eligible for military service.
