While College Republicans lay around drunk....
...someones mom is being sent to Iraq.
Right now my moms is at an airport in Maryland waiting on a plane to send her to Germany, then to Kuwait, then to Iraq. She turns fifty years old on Thursday. At first, I thought she was an anomaly. I believed that there were no other 40+ year old women headed to Iraq.
I was wrong. With my mother there are at least two other women in their forties.
Let me also add that even though most of the College Democrats seemed to have opposed the Iraq War they still have a responsibility here as well. After all they did help elect the President who currently holds the keys for the conflict.
