Draft Talk

The media is at it again, letting itself be dangled along by DNC baloney about a resurgent draft by Republicans.

Not that the Grand Old Party is above such measures, but it was Richard Nixon who ended the draft, Jimmy Carter who introduced the Selective Service machinery that all of us young men must sign up with to avoid going to jail, and it is notoriously liberal New York congressman Charles Rangle who has been going around actively supporting the idea of a new draft, to eliminate the supposed racial bias against blacks in the US military (you see there are too many blacks in the military helping their country and trying to better themselves, lord knows that's a terrible thing!)

Why is there no media coverage of prominent Democrats actually caling for a draft as opposed to internet rumors and Michael Moore fabrications that it would be Bush to bring the draft back? Hmmmm.
