Democratic Sen. Biden's Son Off to Iraq
from The Washington Post:
On Oct. 3, [Delaware Senator (D) Joseph] Biden's son, Joseph Robinette "Beau" Biden III, will be deployed to Iraq.OYE Comment:
"I don't want him going," Biden told an Iowa state fair crowd a year ago, when, as a presidential candidate himself, he learned that his son's unit would be deployed at some point in 2008. "But I don't want my grandsons or granddaughters going back in 15 years. So how we leave makes a big difference."
Beau is the Delaware attorney general and a captain in the Army National Guard.
Wow. We thank Capt. Biden for his service to our country and wish him, and his unit, all the best.
Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.
