The 56th Annual College Republicans National Council Convention starts in a little over a week. There, fine speakers like Tom DeLay, Grover Norquist, and David Horowitz will whip the delusional young people into a fevered frenzy of Bush-worship masking as patriotism. Surely, they will bow their heads and pray for the lost and injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Surely, they will parade the few of their own who have been there. Surely, they will spend time honoring all your heroes who went to Vietnam, like DeLay, Dick Cheney, George Bush, Karl Rove…oh, wait. That explains why you’re College Republicans.
Over at Jesus’ General he’s proposed a great resolution for the CRNC to dissolve until after the war, and all of them show what true patriotism is, and help the military overcome its recruiting deficit. (I wonder if there will be a military recruiting table near their meeting?)
