Order of the White Feather

The comment on this post has a good idea. "If Boortz is so supportive of the Iraq War, why doesn't he use his own money to establish a fund to pay a bonus to those who enlist in the army?" That is an excellent question. Neal Boortz is a taxophobic "libertarian" who supports this costly war in Iraq. For him to put his money where his mouth is would demonstrate how serious he is about winning in Iraq.

But why stop there? Boortz has more mouth than he does money. He, along with fellow talk radio hosts such as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Hugh Hewitt and Laura Ingraham, ought to be using their powerful platforms to encourage young men (and perhaps young women) to volunteer. These hosts should be giving callers under the age of, say, thirty-five, they should start handing out (metaphorical, over the radio) white feathers.

During the First World War, the Order of the White Feather encouraged the young women of England to give white feathers, a symbol of cowardice, to young men not serving in the Army. Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter, should be attending gatherings of the Young Americas Foundation and Students for War, giving (real) white feathers out.

With their great moral authority, these, and other War Party loudmouths ought to be able to correct the recruiting problems of the military.

UPDATE: Ben Stein, who thinks that negative media coverage is what hurts recruiting, should join in. "why would anyone join the Army if he reads the newspapers and watches TV? " Because the Ben Steins of the world are going out and talking it up.

I see that and raise.

I say send that drugged out fat boy Limbaugh with his 'piles', the screeching bitch Coulter, and the rest of these millionaires pundit creeps over to Iraq, put a rifle in their hot greasy little hands and tell them to get to work.
