A spark of reason shone bright in the Republican camp recently. Of course, saying something brilliant is grounds for immediate removal from the Republican party, so expect Michael Steele to step down as Chairman of the Republican National Committee for suggesting we leave Afghanistan.
Sure, the comment was made nestled between claims that Afghanistan was a war of Obama’s choosing and a call to increase our efforts in Iraq, but this is a Republican we’re talking about here!
So, Michael Steele, I never believed I would be doing this, but I salute you for your efforts to drum up support for ending at least one of the ridiculous wars we’re involved in.
It’s a shame that at a time when we are confronted with problems of vast importance, all we get is half-vast efforts from our politicians.
