Putting the "chicken" back in "chickenhawk".


Just when you thought RedState’s Erick Erickson couldn’t possibly be any more pathetic, he reaches bottom and promptly begins to dig.

Erick Erickson, the editor of RedState, has just given us fodder to use for the rest of the year. In an attempt at being politically savvy--and by telling himself that what they do is somehow akin to being a "soldier" in a "war"--Erickson has decided that conservatives need to field-organize like progressives. And what better way to motivate the "troops" for activism than by inventing your own unit crest which, of course, replicates those worn by actual combatants in real wars?

H/T to Brandon Friedman -- an actual, honest-to-God, real soldier -- at VetVoice.

LOL, the "101st Chairborn"... if these people ever develop any sense of shame their heads will explode.

Aww, he just wants to feel like he's part of it. You know, without actually doing anything.

He could put a yellow ribbon on his SUV? That's doing something.

Canada is in his country list.... is he unaware that red doesn't have the same political affiliation here as it does there?

Somebody should tell the Libloggers, nobody needs organizing more than the LPoC just now.

I have 9 networked quad core computer systems that I signed up for a distributed computing project to....... create robot soldiers. Machines to create machines.

Everyone should do their part, I am.
