Contest: Come Up with a New Term
The liberals have had a lot of fun with the term "chickenhawk", which they apply to anybody who hasn't served in the military yet supports the war.
Jim Lampley today shows the need
for a new term."I tore up my draft card one night in 1968 on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. No way you would ever find me supporting the draft. But Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y) said it one day a couple of years ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since. And I've decided Charlie was right.
Got it? We need a term for people who opposed the draft during the Vietnam War when it was their tushes on the line, and who now support the draft. Should we call them Draft Codgers? There's gotta be a good nickname, something punchy and funny at the same time. Selective Selective Service fans? If you post a proposed nickname on your blog let me know in the comments.
BTW, although Rangel supports the draft, he doesn't qualify; he was an Army sergeant in Korea.
