Let’s talk

How about this: On Wed 7 Jun 2006, the folks over at Open Iraq Debate and Win Without War hope that loyal and right-thinking Americans will call their congressional representatives and urge them to support HR 543, a bill that requires an immediate debate in the US House of Representatives on the US military action in Iraq. It sounds like a good idea to me.

Of course, I suspect that there’s at least a little election positioning going on here. If a representative does not vote for this bill, I suspect she or he will hear about it from an opponent next fall: “Representative X voted against having a free and open debate about the Iraq war. Can you believe that?”

Virtual flash of the electrons to Pam Austin of ::uncomfortably numb::, who’s post led me to this.
