Feeling A Draft?

As noted on Think Progress and on MSNBC's Countdown last night, during a campaign appearance in New Mexico, St. John McBombbombbomb responded to an audience member's statement that we can't keep recycling our military forces without reinstating the draft. McBombbombbomb's response? "I don't disagree with anything you said."

Well now.

Reinstating the draft. Let's see how fast the mainstream media and talking heads on cable pick up that little bombshell. (UPDATE: It looks like our broken press will bury this story, too.) We suppose it's in keeping with McBombbombbomb's philosophy of endless war that we'll need generation after generation to fight in Iraq, Iran, Russia, Syria, Lebanon, and 78 other countries that right wing neocons perceive as a "threat." As to following bin Laden "to the gates of hell", McBombbombbomb rarely focuses on Afghanistan, and criticized Obama for endorsing strikes in Pakistan against bin Laden if we have actionable intelligence. "Gates of Hell" means in this case wherever McBombbombbomb and his neocons want to push some Muslims around.
