The Democrats feel a draft

Remember when Bush was running for reelection, and the Democrats were trying to get America's young voters to vote for them by scaring the young 'uns into believing the Republicans were going to bring back the draft? The funny thing is that it was the Democrats who put the bills in the hopper on Capitol Hill to bring back the draft. Specifically, the big mover and shaker on this was Charlie Rangel (D-NY). It was a totally cynical charade however; Rangel ended up voting against his own bill.

Rangel is back ladies and gentlemen. He is trying once again to bring back the draft. Let's see if he and the Democrats try to blame the Republicans for it like last time.

Hat tip to Cox & Forkum (see blogroll) for one of my favorite all-time political cartoons.

Good Day to You, Sir

This post has been nominated for inclusion in The Sacramento Bee's Sunday Blog Watch feature.

As part of broader project to bring the blogosphere to, the blog roundup in The Sacramento Bee Sunday Forum section has been commandered and turned into a digest of regional opinion. (See last week's batch here.)

I currently browse more than 200 regional blog feeds, setting aside the individual posts that have enough shelf life to be published on Sunday in The Bee. Recently I made it possible for people to "vote" on the blog posts being considering.

This post is one of 10 blog posts currently in contention for inclusion next Sunday. Voting is limited to those who register at to prevent people from gaming the voting. If you just want to see how it works, you can use my guest account -- user guest, password guest.
