VoteVets continue their Yellow Elephant Smackdown

Jon Soltz, from, was recently matched with Human Events' ill prepared Ericka Andersen on MSNBC. Although Miss Andersen supports The War she's unwilling to join, she is more at fault for using the word "WE" to somehow forge a connection between herself and the Real Americans that do the actual bullet dodging.

Portions from the transcript (emphasis OYE):

"Iraq isn't a war WE can just walk away from....."

"But WE'RE in Iraq now and WE went into Iraq and now WE have a job to finish."

"Well WE have a job to do in Iraq....."
Youtube clip:

OYE Comment: We, at OYE, don't often ask females to Be A Man! Enlist! And we're not going to make an exception in Miss Andersen's case. However, we do believe Ericka can be of use to Our Country by delving into her extensive circle of influence of Yellow Elephants and Chickenhawks and encouraging those eligible to back up her words that fell flat in this teevee segment. Ericka Andersen, do any of your peers have the courage to do what Jon Soltz did and wear a helmet and camouflage to work?

UPDATE: A correction to the spelling of Miss Andersen's name has been made. Apologies to Miss Andersen for not having it correct in the post. -Wek

Being pretty like Miss Ericka excuses one from a lot of things. But I firmly believe that it does not excuse one from making asinine comments concerning foreign policy on national TV. If she had been to Iraq to for 12-month stint, she would have had validation when saying "We". Oh well.

At minimum, Ms. Ericka Anderson can encourage her male counterparts to Be A Man! Enlist!

Human history has a long and honorable tradition of such strong support for our Men in Uniform.

Erika is terrible, I can't believe that they send tools like her to make arguments. Why have experts?
Jon Soltz however, is awesome. He just killed her. The line about Osama not being in Iraq was great.

I'm female and served 10 years in the Air Force, granted none of those in the last 11 years. However, I would go if they asked me. I see nothing wrong with telling females to Be a Woman! Enlist!

So to the Michelle Malkins, the Jennas and not-Jennas, and the Chelsea Clintons of the world Be Women! Enlist!

Erika is such a dumbass:

But the thing that baffles me is why the hell Ms Anderson was included in the interview with Soltz in the first place. What purpose did she serve other than to be an antagonist? I mean, having her sit there chanting the same line over and over while Jon spoke wasn't informative, or useful, or even entertaining. Why didn't they just have the cameraman pepper Jon with paintballs while he spoke if all they wanted to do was antagonize him?

I find it laughable that Erika was actually asked to go on TV. Once again, news shows are bringing on "experts" who are really in no position to say anything about the issues they're talking about. Erika is a recent college grad who writes for Human Events. In other words, she's at the bottom of the list when it comes to credible sources or people qualified to discuss these issues on a news network.

As for Jon Soltz, great job! He really put her in her place. It was hilarious watching her try to use outdated arguments and logical fallacies. He was far more prepared and quite obviously more intelligent.

Wow. These people are like zombies. All they can seem to do is repeat mantras. 'Cut and run. Cut and run. Run run run. '
Last I heard, Obam was talkuing about a 16 month timetable - to BEGIN withdrawls. That is 'cut and run'? Did we cut and run when we left Afghanistan to invade Iraq to secure oil for Bush family interests?

I love how these people wag the dog - they acknowledge (grudgingly) that there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until we invaded, but they then say 'well, we're there now so we have to finish the job.'

THAT is illogical, Ms. Erica...
