This from da Horse:
Dear Esteemed Horse:
Poor kid from West Virginia (Byrd is the word) joins the army for college money so she can be a teacher? Sounds like a Republican to me.
Let's see, during her homecoming yesterday Private Lynch thanked Sen. John Rockefeller, a Democrat, and Gov. Bob Wise, also a Democrat.
She thanked her boyfriend. She paid tribute to her fellow soldiers. She even thanked the Iraqi people who helped her survive.
There was one name that was glaringly omitted, however. That would be none other than her Commander-in-Chief.
Nicely done, soldier.
