Jon, I have never served in the military and I have never claimed to have served in the military. For the most part I couldn't care less if you think I am echo or not, but when it rolls over into accusing me of falsely claiming a military record I must take exception. I do not know whether echo (or anyone else here) served in the military, but I do know that I did not serve in the military nor have I ever claimed to have served in the military.
I do know that a number of Congresspersons have made themselves unfit to serve in Congress by signing a pledge of loyalty to Grover Norquist.
The signing of this pledge you have such concern over is no different that than party caucus meetings the each party has to determine their strategy for a coming Congressional session or about a particular bill. The Republicans simply made the mistake of making it public.
You don’t think that Harry gets all his troops together and makes them commit to following the party line? Come on are you really that naïve?
A whole lot of noise about everyday events in Washington D.C. Get over it.
