Besides the great Michael Barone, we were lucky enough to have Lt. Pete Hegseth call in. He's involved with a group called Vets For Freedom. As you might expect from a former officer with the 101st Airborne, he's not willing to just stand by and let political support for winning the war in Iraq go gently into the night. He's organizing veterans from the Iraqi and Afghani theaters to blanket Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday to directly lobby members of the House and Senate for continuing support of our efforts to achieve victory over there. Obviously they're working on short time, with limited financial resources. Any vets able to join this initiative and any citizens able to support the cause financially can check out their web site.
Today we also discussed Keith Ellison's latest bizarre remarks, this time regarding 9/11 conspiracy theories. We got a call from Nancy at Freedom Dogs who said she would be attending Rep. Ellison's "town hall" meeting today. She did and her report is here.
