Duty, Honor … Reelection?


Conduct unbecoming senators.

There must be an official style book at NRO. Every one of their pundits says the same thing using the same words. Just once, I'd like one of them to come out from behind the demagoguery and tell us exactly what is so dangerous about hauling our butts out of Iraq.
