PS Pepsi Challenge

I'm posting today's Lunchbox partly because it's funny, but mostly because does anyone else find his "turkey gobble" strangely erotic, like some secret lesbian siren song? Now that I think about it, his sex appeal is a bit lesbionic (which is not a dig).

Also, I love Rangel's draft bill. He's definitely there to keep us progressives happy, in a meaningless sort of way.

After checking out the Blue Tiger Dems site, it seems more like the Blue-Haired Tiger Dems (oh snap!). Seriously, it's very senior-oriented. Which is cool by me. Everybody knows seniors disproportionately vote.

    Actually, I'm not crazy about Rangel's bill. A) I don't like bringing up legislation you don't believe in as a way of making an entirely different point, and B) as I said to Emma B, Rangel is seriously underestimating the press's ability to miss that point.

    It's also a confused point. The Iraq War would be no more just if it were fought by a wider cross-section of the populace, and as Adam Green rightly points out, having a draft in the past didn't actually force our policymakers to put their own children at risk. Meanwhile there are a lot of inequities, questionable practices, and outright lies involved in recruitment, but addressing those forthrightly, even in the context of a draft debate, would mean the cable news shows would have to criticize the armed forces. They're never going to do that.
