While reading an article about Senator Kerry’s election bid, I ran across this interesting tidbit of info:
Mehlman (Kerry’s campaign manager) but acknowledged that Democrats scored points against Bush, such as raising the specter of a draft reinstatement, which got the attention of young voters.
“I think that was something that worked. It wasn’t true, but it worked,” he said.
To those of you who jumped on my case election time about Bush bringing back the draft… you are still idiots. Don’t believe everything you hear or read. Don’t worry about the draft… there are plenty of us with the courage and intestinal fortitude to risk our lives fighting the bad guys all so you can sit at home and complain about it.
