Upon hearing that a leading member of the Maine College Democrats, and sharp critic of the war, is keeping a high school commitment and shipping off to Iraq, the secretary of the College Republican National Committee, Dan Schuberth, got all, well, Republican and called his "logic and motivation" into question.
The portly, but otherwise healthy Republican Schuberth has no plans to fight in the war he supports.
The General is impressed with the preternatural Republican sensibility this kid possesses and concludes his adulatory letter thusly:
I was particularly impressed by your claim that this young Marine opposed his country by opposing the president. It demonstrates that you are capable of doing whatever it takes to destroy your political opponents. Just as such former College Republican greats as Scooter Libby and Karl Rove betrayed the identity of a CIA agent for political purposes, you accuse an Iraq-bound Marine of treason simply because he protests Our Leader's policies. Obviously, you have the right stuff to go far in today's Republican Party.
There is still more you can do. Join the Marines and follow du Houx to Iraq, and when an opportunity presents itself, betray him to the enemy. That's what Dick Cheney would do.(Jesus' General)
PLAMEGATE BONUS: The very latest from Richard Sale (via DailyKos): "An hour ago I was contacted by a U.S. government official close to the Fitzgerald case. This person told me that there WILL be indictments announced later this afternoon, and the Special Prosecutor will hold a press conference tomorrow."
3:23pm EST: AP reports that the Grand Jury is "adjourning for the day without announcing any action." That doesn't mean that the announcement won't come later but it does appear less likely.
